Universal Oven Applications
Memmert universal ovens are the first choice in applications where precise temperatures are the difference between success and failure. They are used in a wide variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare, product development, food science, and anywhere material testing is required. These industries often use processes which result in unique outcomes and require specific features and capabilities.
Memmert universal ovens are commonly used in the following applications. In the examples below, the processes are complex and the knowledge required to achieve the desired end result is extensive.
Performance Testing (Aging)
Tempering is a heat treating process that is used to make make materials like glass or plastic stronger. Tempering is used in the production of mechanical and electronic components. It is also used in the production of optical lenses, both glass and plastic. Plastic is the optical material of the future because it is easier to work with than glass and lasts longer. “In order to defuse tensions in plastics, to increase form stability, to minimize the danger of crack formation and to degas undesired volatile substances, the plastic components are tempered for 24 hours in a Memmert drying oven after injection moulding and other processing steps such as coating.” Plastic has to be tempered at temperatures between 90 and 95° C. If it’s hotter than 95° the plastic will be come gooey and unusable.
In each of the use cases above, the success of a product is dependent on controlled air exchange, consistently even heat throughout the oven, precise temperatures, and sturdy and long lasting equipment. An “oven with a volume of 749 liters is surrounded on all sides by 52 meters of heating elements. Six heating circuits are controlled separately from one another so that the required temperature is exactly attained and maintained at every point in the interior…the heating doesn’t simply switch off when the set temperature has been reached but the temperature is controlled permanently, gently, and evenly throughout the entire chamber.” In addition to these must-haves, Memmert ovens are easy to clean, easy to program, and easy on the eyes. Your oven will run for many years — accurately and reliably — just as you need it to.
