Fast heat-ups and accurate temperature control to 600°C
- Dry, inert, nontoxic aluminum oxide ensures hazard-free operation
- Safer alternative to high temperature oil and salt baths
- Requires controller (01184-50) in order to be calibrated
Use these fluidized sand baths for your heat treating processes, temperature sensor calibrations, and electrical component testing. Baths use aluminum oxide fluidized by low-pressure air as a dry bath medium with excellent heat transfer properties. Inert, nonflammable aluminum oxide is safer to use than oil and will not corrode your sample vessels or produce toxic fumes. Vessels of all shapes can be easily immersed and safely removed from the bath, without the hazard and mess of hot oils.
Make temperature adjustments via a control knob and reference dial. Baths require a dry air flow of approximately 2 cu ft/min (57 L/min) at about 3 psi pressure; order an air pump separately. Order temperature controller (01184-50 or 01184-55) to accurately control the temperature of your sand bath. Baths feature a thermowell to hold a thermocouple thermometer.
Note: not recommended for shape setting in laboratory research device manufacturing or for heating of reactors.
