Jan 01, 2010 Refractory metals can be sintered indirectly in furnaces in which heating elements surrounding the product cause the temperature to rise. Furnace sintering can achieve temperatures of 2700 C. Sintering furnaces can also heat with microwaves instead of heating elements. The microwaves are absorbed throughout the product, which heats volumetrically.

A process for sintering or reaction sintering ceramic or refractory materials with hot plasma gases. The hot plasma gases are produced by injecting a combined primary plasma arc with a secondary gas stream directly into a reaction furnace. The secondary gas stream is tangentially injected into the primary plasma arc gas stream to mix the gases for the required sintering
The sintering process begins in a clay when it has been fired high enough so that it no longer will slake or break down when exposed to water. Bisque fired ware has advanced to a higher state of sintering. Refractories can often be sintered to considerable strength because the high temperatures maximize particle packing and surface interaction.
