LRE stocks New Laboratory Ovens including Mechanical Convection Ovens, Standard Series Ovens, Energy Saving Ovens, High Accuracy Ovens, Gravity Ovens, Inert Gas Ovens, Vacuum Ovens, Benchtop Vacuum Ovens and Hi-Vac Vacuum Ovens.
Mechanical Convection Ovens have an internal fan to force heated air throughout the entire oven. Widely used for Testing and Manufacturing, these types of Mechanical Convection Ovens heat up fast and have a uniform distribution of heat. This method of heating works well with almost any size oven.
These Standard Mechanical Convection Ovens are suitable for most basic oven requirements.
Vacuum Ovens are designed to hold a Vacuum in an Airtight Atmosphere. Gravity Convection Heating is used to allow the heat to flow naturally thru the oven using diffusion (convection) of heat over time.
Vacuum Ovens are operated at large scale and designed for various purposes. A vacuum pump can be stored within the system.
The High Accuracy Mechanical Convection Ovens have tighter than standard uniformity for applications that require very uniform conditions.
A Vacuum Oven that is small enough to be used on a lab bench is known as a Bench Top Vacuum Oven. We carry a variety of small sized Bench Top Vacuum Ovens.
A Hi-Vac Vacuum Oven is designed to achieve a Very High Level of Vacuum (ranges between 1 x 10-4 to 10-7 torr) while the range for a standard vacuum oven is usually ~.1 torr. Some processes, such as testing satellite parts, require this Very High Level of Vacuum.
In a Gravity Oven, the heat is allowed to flow naturally thru the oven using diffusion (convection) of heat over time. Gravity Ovens are usually smaller in size to utilize this method of heating.
Inert Gas Ovens are used when you need to prevent oxygen from corroding or scaling your product. An Inert Gas Oven can purge oxygen and replace it with an Inert Gas like Argon or Nitrogen and hold it in an atmosphere of pressurized inert gas.
