Have questions before taking on the challenge of selecting the right SHEL LAB oven for your application? From benchtop and floor models to gravity convection, clean room, nitrogen purge, and vacuum ovens, SHEL LAB offers plenty to choose from across multiple heat processing applications.
Below you’ll find a brief introduction to the various types of SHEL LAB ovens available so you can rest assured you’ve selected the right oven when it comes time to make a purchase.
SHEL LAB Forced Air Ovens
SHEL LAB’s forced air laboratory ovens use blowers to force warm air through the interior chamber. SHEL LAB ovens use smaller holes on one side of the chamber than the other side to create greater velocity on one side and less resistance on the other as air moves evenly over your lab samples.
Drying or baking samples that may easily be blown around in the chamber? A gravity convection oven may be a better choice for your needs.
High Performance Drying, Curing and Bake Out Ovens
High Performance ovens are built to a strict standards and use a thicker gauge metal, highly precise air flow patterns, and higher velocity blowers. SHEL LAB’s HF series offers tighter uniformity over a large space, increasing drying and curing efficiency.
Gravity Convection Ovens
Gravity convection ovens use natural heat convection to allow warm air to pass gently over samples. Air exchange and moisture loss are adjusted using a top damper. As with all oven applications, the wider the damper, the more moisture is removed.
Clean Room Ovens
To prevent any flaking or dust from the oven entering a clean room environment, clean room ovens are constructed using 304 stainless steel with gasketed body panels to ensure insulation particulates will not escape. Interiors are equipped with a HEPA filter to screen all chamber recirculating air.
Vacuum ovens are very effective for decontamination and low moisture determination studies. They have been used for years in semi-conductor production to reduce oxygen exposure.
