Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M™ Vacuum Ovens include digital electronic control, built-in overtemperature protection, and a fully flexible vacuum/purge/release system for a range of uses. Ovens are designed for drying, curing, outgassing, aging, process control and other applications that require elevated temperature in reduced atmospheres or vacuum/purge with nonflammable and inert atmospheres.
Single-setpoint digital microprocessor control and maximum temperature of 260°C (500°F) with nominal uniformity of ±3.5% of setpoint. Easy-to-read simultaneous LED display of setpoint and actual temperature with push-button view; resolution to within 1°C. Keypad data entry and pull-out control module for easy service. Independent overtemperature safety system factory set with reset pushbutton. The vacuum system consists of 1 in. (2.54cm) manifold, chamber rear and exterior and connects to pump or in-house vacuum source. With inert gas injection valve, fresh air inlet, vacuum exhaust port and controllable vacuum release vent port. 1000 microns (1 torr) capacity.
Ovens are constructed of corrosion-resistant heavy-gauge stainless-steel, featuring dual-wall construction with fiberglass insulation for minimum heat loss in walls and door. Cabinet includes aluminum shelves with painted or stainless-steel finish. Low-watt heating element extends oven life and high-temperature silicone gasket is specially molded for a positive seal. Magnetic latch for positive door seal (4.5 cu. ft. capacity models include mechanical latches). Viewing windows: 0.5 in. (1.3cm) thick in two smaller capacity models or 0.75 in. (1.9cm) thick in 4.5 cu. ft. model; permit observation of work in progress without loss of heat. Stainless-steel exterior models come with double door—a solid outer door over inner window door.
Includes: Power cord and aluminum shelves (number of shelves based on model).
Ovens are not suitable for use with hazardous vapor. For use with nonflammable, noncorrosive inert gases only.
