Blue M Inert Gas Batch Oven

Batch Series Inert Gas Mechanical Convection Ovens

Blue M inert gas, batch ovens are designed for durability and performance. Available in six
(6) standard sizes, these inert gas, batch ovens are ideal for industrial oven applications that
involve processing materials in a controlled atmosphere environment. The Blue M inert gas,
batch oven utilizes a high volume horizontal air recirculation system which maximizes
temperature uniformity and performance.
