Phoenix Black

The world’s safest and fastest muffle furnace


The Phoenix BLACK is the new updated microwave ashing system from CEM. Microwave ashing has a lot of advantages:

Discover all the new features:

Fast and Efficient

  • The Phoenix Black can perform ash analysis 10 times faster than a traditional muffle furnace, allowing you to respond more quickly to changes in the production process.
  • Ramp to temperature in minutes.
  • One-step ashing, complete pre-ash inside furnace without the need for a Bunsen burner.


  • Temperature verification and calibration for ISO and GLP practices are quickly and easily performed with a NIST traceable thermocouple.
  • IQ/OQ/PQ service available for turnkey validation and audit traceability.
  • Meets all requirements for methods that specify “electrically heated” furnaces or “microwave heated” furnaces.


  • Active ventilation keeps the lab free from soot and odors. No need to use a fume cabinet!
  • Patented quartz fiber crucibles cool to the touch in seconds.
  • Integrated sensors hold cavity door open when furnace door is removed or when overheating occurs.

Easy to use

  • Thanks to the touchscreen it’s easy to start or program methods with automatic start time and temperature ramps.
  • Available as a workstation pair with balance and printer or PC for automatic results – no more manual calculations needed.
  • The Phoenix BLACK can use any type of crucible that may be used in a conventional muffle furnace, including platinum.


  • The Phoenix BLACK is available with your choice of either a high temperature or a high capacity furnace.


High Temperature Furnace

  • Heats up to 1200 °C
  • Holds up to 8 (20/50 mL) or 5 (100 mL) Quartz Fiber Crucibles.
