Memmert develops cooled vacuum oven
As the first manufacturer worldwide, Memmert has developed a cooled vacuum oven. Low temperature vacuum drying on a laboratory scale is applied among other things during the drying of bacteria and starter cultures or in the simulation of storage conditions during long distance flights.
The cooled vacuum oven VO 200cool with its interior volume of 29 litres has a temperature range of +5 °C to +90 °. For cooling purposes, a compact, energy-saving and extremely precise Peltier cooling unit was integrated. This way, the Memmert cooled vacuum oven achieves a surface temperature distribution over its entire temperature range with a deviation of max. +/-1 K.
Gentle low temperature vacuum drying and storage of micro-organisms or active pharmaceutical components is particularly applied in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Thanks to this process, unstable substances can be dried at moderate temperatures above zero without causing too much damage to the cell structure. Additionally, the cooled vacuum oven VOcool from Memmert can be deployed to easily and cost-effectively simulate storage and transport of pharmaceutical products during intercontinental flights.
