Thermo Scientific Precision High Performance Incubators feature advanced microprocessor controls. The Precision high-performance incubators are available with mechanical or gravity convection for your most important applications that require excellent temperature distribution or gentle sample heating between 5°C above ambient to 75°C.
Choice of Mechanical or Gravity Convection
Mechanical convection provides uniform heating, precise temperature control and fast drying. A blower circulates heated air in a horizontal airflow pattern for efficient heat distribution with tight temperature tolerances of up to ±0.3°C. Gravity convection offers gentle drying with heat-generated convection to move the air vertically through the chamber to heat samples.
Advanced Microprocessor PID Controls
Sophisticated microprocessor PID controls feature easy-to-view digital LED readout. Fixed setpoints on control panel eliminate need for tuning and offset feature enables easy calibration. Temperature is displayed on large, three-character screen and can be easily set from 5°C above ambient to 75°C in 0.1°C increments using touch-sensitive arrow keys.
Built-in safety back-up maintains control at 3°C above setpoint if primary heater control fails. Visual alarm indicates when temperature exceeds 3°C setpoint. Silicone gasket on outer door and 3" thick fiberglass insulation prevents heat loss and ensures excellent temperature uniformity. Circuit breaker protects against power surges.
Simplicity and Flexibility
Inner glass door permits viewing of samples without disturbing the chamber environment. Internal electrical outlet allows operation of a shaker, stirrer or other lab apparatus (30.4 cu. ft unit includes two outlets).
Durable and Robust
Cabinet has durable, enamel-coated steel exterior. Interior chamber features easy-to-clean stainless steel. Low-watt density heater elements are designed for long life.
