In a vacuum drying oven, the thermal processes occur in an airtight chamber where a desired vacuum level is set using an external vacuum pump. With vacuum ovens, entire applications can take place under vacuum or in a controlled atmosphere through the introduction of an inert gas. Vacuum ovens can help in the prevention of surface reactions (such as oxidation), decontaminating samples (removing lubricants for example) as well as for speeding up the out gassing process. When determining the vacuum oven process, bear in mind that you will need the correctly sized pump to adhere to application requirements. This requires defining the appropriate chamber size, the level of vacuum desired, and how quickly you will need to reach that desired vacuum level.
Drying processes are essential to various workflows in the laboratory and many times, vacuum drying is needed for delicate samples at low temperatures. Offered with various temperature ranges and sizes, BEING vacuum ovens are designed with safety, reliability and efficiency in mind—and offer features that tailor to your specific applications. Typically used within the pharmaceutical, food, electronics, medical devices and aerospace industries—the BEING vacuum ovens portfolio offers a variety of models to accommodate applications such as:
  • Moisture removal from food such as dairy products
  • Moisture removal from sensitive products such as electronics
  • Complex vacuum drying processes, with specific goals such as: > Prevention of oxidation > Removal of moisture residue by addressing capillary effects
  • Defined heating protocols with temperature ramping under vacuum
  • Storage of oxygen sensitive material in the presence of inert gas, e.g. nitrogen
  • Tempering
  • Solvent, epoxy and essential oil removal
Our vacuum ovens are purpose-built to perform degassing / purging of light hydrocarbon solvents. Using the technique of cold boiling, the oven applies a gentle heat under reduced pressure conditions to expedite solvent degassing while simultaneously preserving color, aroma, and overall solute quality. We've applied our extensive vacuum expertise and industry experience to produce a series of ovens designed exactly for your needs: low consumption, high-throughput, and reliable operation
