Drying and Heating with Ovens in your Lab

Uniform drying and heating temperatures are a very important part of your laboratory performance. It is fundamental to have the ideal laboratory oven in order to perform routine applications with success. These ovens are meant to be for high-forced volume thermal applications providing a uniform temperature throughout the entire procedure. Their uses range from drying and heating to sterilizing. Some of their applications in the laboratory and industrial field might be for clean rooms, horizontal airflow, natural convection and inert atmosphere.

We can provide you with the highest technology available for laboratory ovens in industries such as healthcare and biology researches. They are common in scientific investigation and manufacturing industries. When choosing an oven, consider applications, dimension, capacity and lab budget. Look for features that guarantee maximum sample and user protection.

Laboratory oven functions

Ovens for LaboratoryThe way a laboratory oven works is by the principle of convection. This means that the heating element is not located in the oven chamber with the specimen, it is located in a separate external envelope. This way, heat will not affect the sample because it will be located in the oven walls being this enough for heating or dehydrating a specimen. This method provides the needed uniform heat distribution.

These ovens are built with steel to help prevent any radiant heat from the oven exterior, and they have a locking door that protects the device but still provides access to the oven chamber. Some of the laboratory oven’s essential functions are removing the moisture from a specimen, heating a substrate without dehumidification and curing the sample by a slow baking and drying process.

We are offering you special purpose ovens with the features you are looking for. First, there is the vacuum oven, which is very common in brazing, sintering, heat treatment and case hardening applications. One of its important features is that it does not have any gases in the oven chamber preventing it from convection and oxidation. Its temperature distribution exceeds 1100 degrees Celsius. You should know that this are common ovens for batch processing.

The clean process oven is often stainless steel with a HEPA filter and it is very common in medical equipment manufacturing, such as syringes, catheters, stents, pacemakers, and eyesight lenses. It reaches temperatures over 260 degrees Celsius and batch processing and conveyor processing are its common applications.

You can also find among the products that we are offering you, the drying oven. They are also known as moisture extraction ovens. Its uses ranges from quick drying to build-up moisture extracting from soil botanical and particles. This oven type provides optimum heat insulation.

Laboratory oven uses

Laboratory ovens can accomplish a wide variety of tasks. That is why they are common in industrial setting and in the laboratory field.  When it comes to sample testing, the oven works with another lab equipment to determine material strength, fatigue, deformation and resiliency. In addition, one of the most common applications is for lab ware drying. Another laboratory oven function is sterilizing where all microbiological life is eliminated with the oven’s heat. Moreover, there is polymer curing, in which a polymer resin is dehydrated to form a hard-set plastic. However, definitely laboratory ovens most common uses are drying and heating.

That is why we are offering you the highest technology available for laboratory ovens, so that you feel confident when using them in your lab. In addition, sample protection is another oven feature, guaranteeing the sample’s safety and you will get reliable results in terms of heating and drying uniform temperatures.
