What is a Benchtop Oven?
A benchtop oven is an ideal tool for general laboratory work, providing continuous heating needed for samples and materials. It uses coil elements to warm the chamber and provides consistent heating for the amount of time needed. These types of furnaces can either be made with set temperature controls or programmable ones, based on your needs.
How Benchtop Ovens are Used
Benchtop ovens are perfect for various applications. First and foremost, these furnaces are best for ashing most organic and inorganic samples. Other uses for benchtop ovens include:
• Heat treatment of steel parts
• Gravimetric analysis
• Ignition tests
• Determining volatile and suspended solids
• Quantitative analysis
