SHEL LAB vacuum ovens provide exceptional capabilities for fast and gentle drying of heat sensitive materials. They prevent residue accumulation on products and also allow safe drying of materials at lower temperatures than typically required when using convection ovens.
All SHEL LAB vacuum ovens are built with a stainless steel chamber for exceptional durability. The SVAC1, SVAC2 and SVAC4 have a double plenum design that meets UL, CSA and EU safety requirements resulting in a cool outer surface. The tempered glass viewing window allows for safe, continuous monitoring of samples.
These units feature a versatile Watlow temperature controller that is capable of forty ramp and soak profiles, or four files with ten steps per file. To achieve required vacuum levels, users can choose from a 3/8 inch orifice or a KF25 fitting to withstand heavy use and minimize draw-down time. Maximum permitted end vacuum is 10 μ. Leak rate is 10 mTorr per hour.
