  • 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
