Safer alternative to high temperature oil and salt baths
Requires controller (1184-50) 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 3 cu ft/minute for model 01184-00 and -02 and 5 cu ft/minute for 01184-04 at about 3 psi pressure; order an air pump separately. All baths have a thermowell and an overspill flange. Note: not recommended for shape setting in laboratory research device manufacturing or for heating of reactors.
