Forced Air Drying Oven

Forced air drying ovens, also known as lab convection ovens, are machines highly regarded for their functionality and overall heating and drying capabilities.

Rapid air distribution allows forced air-drying ovens to provide continuous and uniform heating, ensuring that all areas of an item receive equal amounts of heat inside the chamber. This drying equipment has a built-in fan that circulates hot air quickly throughout the oven’s interior to expedite the heating and drying time exponentially. As such, it’s ideal for material testing labs that produce high-volume samples daily.

Since the high and consistent heating capacity of forced air drying ovens promotes efficiency in processes like warm storing, sterilizing, and drying, this type of lab oven is highly useful if you’re in the electronics, food, or pharmaceutical industry.

Vacuum Drying Oven

Vacuum drying ovens are heavily used in applications rooted in engineering and laboratory research. The oven reduces the pressure inside the chamber during the heating process, which in turn lowers the boiling point of most substances. This makes vacuum ovens ideal for sensitive samples that are heat-sensitive or tend to be damaged when subjected to other drying processes, including powders and electrical components.

Additionally, this type of lab oven significantly mitigates risk through an airtight door that is connected to a vacuum pump. It’s this mechanism that decreases the pressure inside the drying chamber. Such low pressure then allows solvents or water to evaporate even at low temperatures.

You can use vacuum drying ovens for high-grade products that contain water or solvent and which need a gentle drying method without altering their properties. Aside from their primary drying capabilities, vacuum ovens are also helpful in sample decontamination, expediting the gassing process and preventing surface reactions like oxidation.

What is a lab oven for?

Lab ovens are general lab equipment used for high-volume thermal convection applications like drying, curing, material testing, evaporating, and heated storage. These specialized ovens’ precise and uniform temperatures are perfect for sterilizing, evaporating, baking, and other industrial laboratory functions.

Industries such as pharmaceuticals, material processing, electronics, and other similar applications generally use this multi-purpose appliance.

What are the typical sizes of laboratory ovens?

A lab oven’s size and volume vary depending on the application. Typical sizes can be as small as 1 cubic foot or 28 liters.

In comparison, larger ovens can be as big as 32 cubic feet or 906 liters. These heavy-duty machines can accommodate temperatures of 300°C or 572°F.

What is the temperature range of lab ovens?

Much like the size, a lab oven’s temperature range will depend on its intended purpose. Temperatures can begin from ambient at around 300°C. This range is ideal for moisture extraction and drying and is often used in chemistry, biology, pharmaceuticals, and forensics. 

Meanwhile, some more advanced models can generate temperature ranges of up to 600°C or 700°C for sintering and annealing applications. Specialized applications in material processing, electronics, and physics commonly use ovens that operate beyond 300°C.

What should I consider when buying a lab oven?

Purchase a lab oven that fits your industry’s specific needs. Check the volume, temperature uniformity, and maximum temperature before purchasing one to make sure that it has the features you need to perform your lab work.

You also want to consider what you’ll be using the oven for. Suppose you intend to use it for drying. In this case, choose an oven with features specifically for moisture extraction.

Safety features are also important. It’s best to secure a lab oven designed to reduce explosion risk and relieve pressure, like explosion relief panels. This way, you can proceed with your day-to-day operations with zero to minimal risk.
