Thermo Scientific Heratherm Ovens Maximize Efficiency, Safety and Ease-of-Use

ASHEVILLE, N.C., (January 17, 2011) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced its new Thermo Scientific Heratherm ovens, available in three different models: General Protocol, Advanced Protocol and Advanced Protocol Security. Each unit is available in 60-, 100- and 180-liter sizes with a choice of gravity or mechanical convection. With a focus on energy efficiency, sample safety and ease–of-use, these benchtop heating and drying ovens maximize capacity while optimizing laboratory footprint. Special insulation and a heat-decoupled door reduce energy consumption and minimize heat transfer to the environment. All models include an easy-to-use use interface, automatic over temperature alarm and data monitoring. As a result, these ovens meet all laboratory, clinical and industrial heating and drying needs.

Heratherm™ General Protocol ovens are ideal for everyday heating and drying applications, operating up to 250° C with outstanding temperature stability. A timer function enables unit operation at defined times to optimize workflow. Where greater flexibility or temperature accuracy is required, the Heratherm Advanced Protocol ovens operate as high as 330° C, while providing superior temperature uniformity. An extended timer function offers the choice of weekly, real-time or hour-driven settings for advanced flexibility. The program function can store up to 10 pre-defined cycles making it easy to undertake processes involving complex temperature ramping and holding steps. Fan speed and damper position can be controlled electronically to facilitate optimal heating, while the unique boost function allows rapid heating and reduces long-term energy consumption.

The Advanced Protocol Security ovens incorporate an additional under temperature alarm, as well as a lockable door with an alarm, making them ideal for working with precious samples and long-term processes. The auto-dry function shuts the oven down upon completion to maximizing energy efficiency, and an optional stainless steel exterior makes it ideal for use in pharmaceutical and clinical laboratories.
