Whether your application is for drying, ageing, softening or sterilising a variety of heating technologies are available. View our selection below or call our application specialists for free support for help you find a suitable laboratory oven to suit your needs.
Gravity Convection Laboratory Ovens - provide low cost alternative to mechanical convection ovens when temperature uniformity is not essential to the process. Ideal for applications in which a powder or substance that needs to be heated or dried could be disturbed by a fan-generated airflow.
Mechanical Convection Laboratory Ovens- utilizes a motorized fan to force air across heating elements and into the warning chamber. The fan allows for a more consistent distribution of air and is designed for applications in which good temperature uniformity or faster heatup/drying time are needed
Safety Ovens- are a mechanical convection oven that has a blow-out panel to protect the end user from injury in the event of an explosion within the oven. The safety oven is not explosion-proof and will not prevent volatiles from combusting. However, in the event of an explosion, the blow-out panel is designed to direct the force of the blast away from the user.
Vacuum Ovens - is used when lack of atmosphere or inert atmosphere is desired. Because heating must occur in a vacuum where there is no convection of air, it is accomplished by placing the sample of the shelving in the unit so heat is conducted from the side walls to the sample via the metal shelf. These unit require a separate vacuum pump.
