Yes a vacuum furnace or any similar chamber can be considered a confined space. A confined space is any space with limited entry or egress. The primary concern in a vacuum furnace (confined space) is limited air flow or available oxygen to breathe. With vacuum furnaces we also have to consider the fact that process gasses are also connected to the furnace or vessel. These gasses can also displace oxygen when used during back-fill or if leaking.
