Features of the Gallenkamp Vacuum Oven Include:
- Reliable, needle type inlet and exhaust valves are fitted. These are situated near the bottom front corner of the oven for convenient connection to a vacuum pump, vapour trap or exhaust. The serrated nozzles accept flexible vacuum tubing of 10-12mm bore. A vacuum gauge is fitted showing vacuum pulled, from 0 to 1000 mbar.
- Tough Construction
- The outer case is tough, stoved epoxy-polyester painted steel, to look good even under the most demanding working conditions.The vacuum chamber is a robust light alloy casting supplied with two shelves and three shelf positions.
- The chamber is heated by large area heater panels strapped to its outer surface
- Glass fibre insulation maintains safe, low outer case temperatures. The chamber is closed by a 12.5mm thick toughened glass plate sealing onto a silicone rubber gasket. This glass plate is mounted onto the door by 4 spring-loaded pins to ensure an excellent, even seal to the chamber. Door closure is achieved via a strong and positive twist action latch. As an extra safety precaution a 4mm thick shatter resistant polycarbonate safety shield covers the door window.
