Laboratory Water Baths
Laboratory water baths are the preferred method of heating flammable chemicals, and they do an excellent job of maintaining even temperatures. Water baths can keep samples moving while being heated by either shaking or circulating the samples according to testing specifications.
Laboratory water bath applications
The process of using a laboratory water bath starts by setting a defined temperature for the electronically controlled water bath. Thermal energy is then transferred to the water chamber through heat conduction, beginning the process of heating the bath. Accessories for electronically controlled shaking devices and compact cooling units can be added to any Memmert water bath unit.
Our water baths are available in seven model sizes with either standard temperature control or electronic overtemperature control capabilities. Memmert laboratory water baths offer several advantages over other heating methods, including low thermal mass, high heat transfer coefficient and easy temperature control, making them versatile and essential tools in many laboratory settings. Memmert water baths have a wide variety of uses for both research and industrial settings.

- Corrosion Testing Water Baths: Corrosion testing water baths create simulate corrosive conditions to evaluate the resistance of materials against corrosion. Corrosion testing is essential to assess the durability and performance of materials in real world applications and to develop corrosion-resistant coatings. The baths play a critical role in material selection, product development and quality assurance processes in the manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, marine and construction industries.
- Fermentation & Homogenization Water Baths: Fermentation and homogenization water baths provide precise and reliable temperature controls, which are essential to achieving reproducible results in laboratory experiments. Fermentation and homogenization water baths play a critical role in biotechnology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmaceuticals and food science, enabling scientists to perform a wide range of essential processes with accuracy and efficiency.
- Vaccine Testing Water Baths: Vaccine testing water baths create controlled environments to assess how vaccines respond to various temperature variations over time. Vaccine testing water baths are crucial for ensuring the safety and efficacy of vaccines before they are distributed for public use.
- Underwater Simulation Baths: Underwater simulation baths create controlled aquatic environments to study the behavior, physiology and responses of aquatic organisms and materials under realistic underwater conditions. Underwater simulation baths play a crucial role in advancing our understanding of aquatic ecosystems, marine life and underwater technologies.
Frequently Asked Questions About Laboratory Water Baths
- What is a water bath used for in a lab?
- A water bath is laboratory equipment used to heat samples such as chemicals, biological materials or food products to a specific temperature for experimentation, analysis and assessment. Water baths are commonly used in scientific research and food processing, as they provide a stable and consistent heat source.
- How do I choose the right water bath for my research needs?
- The best type of water bath for your research needs will depend on the type of samples you will be heating and the temperature range you need.
