  • Many different workspace sizes to fit virtually any requirement
  • Quick access for simple inner chamber cleaning
  • Easy to use controller for repeatable results and less training requirements
  • Reinforced Type 304 stainless steel interior resists corrosion and makes cleaning easy
  • 4 inches of fiberglass insulation saves energy and provide cool to the touch exterior
  • Adjustable air intake and exhaust dampers for flexible testing conditions
  • Infinitely variable control from full recirculation to full one pass to accommodate any processing need
  • Profiling or single setpoint temperature controls offer flexible recipe options
  • Standard air flow switch

Performance

  • Temperature Range: 15ºC above ambient to 350ºC
  • Control: +0.5ºC
  • Uniformity: +/-2% of setpoint
  • Resolution: ±0.1°C
  • Run-up to 300°C in 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.
