Blue M 146 Series ASTM Testing Mechanical Convection Oven

The Blue M ASTM Convection Oven is ideal for a number of industrial oven applications, including ASTM testing, epoxy curing, moisture drying, UL testing, aging of electronic components and devices, and other processes and testing requirements. The oven meetts type 5374 and 5423 types I and II along with E145 type IA and IIA testing requirements. 

Benefits of the Blue M 146 Series ASTM Testing Mechanical Convection Oven

  • Designed to meet the frequent air changes and tight temperature uniformity required of the AST 5423 Type I and Type II oven specifications
  • A high volume fan circulates air through perforated, stainless steel walls to create a constant horizontal airflow across all sections of the oven. This results in a highly uniform airflow that meets the ASTM 5423 Type I and II Specification while tested according to ASTM 5374.
  • Temperature variation max of 6°C at 300°C
  • Can be used for applications such as thermal evaluation of electrical insulating materials, testing, aging, curing, drying, sterilizing and other thermal applications where tight temperature uniformity is required.
  • High quality design and simple operation
  • Horizontal air flow assures uniform thermal performance under all loading conditions
  • Impervious barrier between process chamber and insulation material
  • Differential Air Pressure Switches alert you if loss of pressure or airflow is detected
  • Multiple model options for custom test needs
  • Quick access for simple inner chamber cleaning
  • Easy to use controller

Features

  • Identical to Model DC except for welded and sealed liner
  • Heavy gauge steel exterior made from 16 gauge panels
  • Interior features reinforced 304 stainless steel
  • 4 inches of fiber glass insulation
  • Adjustable air intake and exhaust dampers

  • Control Accuracy: +0.5°C
  • Resolution: ±0.1°C
  • Performance data (typical): Run-up to 300°C 60 minutes or less

Warranty

This Blue M product has an exclusive 2 year warranty for all domestic (US only) shipments for parts and labor for a period of 2 years from date of shipment. The 2 year warranty covers all parts and labor the first year including fan motors and heating elements; the second year is limited and covers parts and labor with the exception of fan motors and heating elements.

A standard one year parts and labor warranty will continue to be offered on the following Blue M series products: Ultra-Temp Standard Convection Ovens, Custom Lab Equipment (CLE), or Full Range Programmable Chambers (FR).

The Blue M Laboratory Ovens (LO) and Gravity Ovens (GO) series are covered by a standard one year parts only warranty.
