CVO-10 Vacuum Purge Oven

  • $14,000.00


    Model CVO-10 – A high production, large vacuum oven for vacuum purging in production capacities

    Cascade’s Model CVO-10 offers incredible temperature stability for vacuum drying and purging of pharmaceuticals, botanicals, and slurries – especially temperature sensitive material. This vacuum oven liberates solvents, water, and other unwanted compounds. It’s ideal for large batch production environments.

    Processing Temperature Sensitive Material? The CVO-10 comes in both low temp & high temp versions.

    Be sure to get the low temp CVO-10 version that has excellent temperature uniformity for products such as pharmaceuticals, slurries or any product that can be damaged or destroyed by temperature fluctuations.

    Low Temperature Processing Range:  26°F to 250°F (121°C)
    Temperature Uniformity: +/- 1.5°F @ 105°F (40.5°C)
    Temperature Stability: +/- 0.4°F @ 105°F(40.5°C)

    High Temperature Processing Range:  Up to  428°F / 220°C
    Temperature Uniformity: +/- 6.5% of setpoint

    At time of order we will verify the high / low temp version best suited to your requirements.

    The Cascade  Difference

    Vacuum ovens have been around for decades. Basic vacuum ovens are mass-produced and sold by many large laboratory equipment distributors. But there are key differences between Cascade and other less costly, often imported vacuum ovens:

    Exceptional Temperature Control & Stability
    The Cascade CVO-10 uses a unique control logic not found in most lab grade vacuum ovens. The temperature probe is INSIDE the oven, which minimizes temperature overshoot and delivers best-in-class temperature stability and uniformity particularly in the low temperature ranges. Accurate, stable temps throughout the CVO-10 eliminate hot and cold spots, making accurate use of every inch of shelf space.

    Independent Overtemp Failsafe Protection
    The Cascade Sciences CVO-10 is equipped with a heating cutoff system that will automatically stop power to the heaters when the oven shelf temps exceed 392°F or 200°C. This protection system will provide peace of mind for overnight processing or unattended vacuum bake outs.

    NRTL Certification #U8 170464972 077. No Extra cost.
    The CVO-10 Vacuum Oven comes certified by the Nationally Recognized Test Lab, TUV. This certification is a requirement by many municipalities.

    • +UPD No. 1:2015-07 + UPD No. 2:2016-04

    • EN 61010-2-010:2014

    Rigorous Quality Assurance in an ISO Certified, USA Manufacturing Facility
    Cascade Sciences manufactures our ovens in Oregon, USA. We are proud of our ISO 9001 Certification/Accreditation. Each oven completes a series of quality assurance procedures before shipment.

    • Chambers are vacuum tested after welding for vacuum integrity
    • Electrical & mechanical safety is thoroughly tested in compliance with TUV requirements
    • Functional testing verifies user settable items consistent with most lab protocols/usage models
    • Temperature verification includes calibration & temp chamber uniformity following ASTM standards
    • Units are cleaned and packed in ISTA tested, certified packaging materials

    Digital Vacuum Gauge
    The digital vacuum gauge installed on the CVO-10 displays in is factory default set to read in inches of mercury (“Hg) or torr.

    Log Temperature & Vacuum With Data Port
    The CVO-10 features a rear mounted data port which outputs a digital log line once per minute. Viewing/logging this data requires terminal emulator software such as the open source (BSD License) emulator Tera Term.

    Equipped for Inert Gas Backfill. Built-In Safety Relief
    Introduce inert gasses such as nitrogen, argon, helium, etc. as part of your process via the ¼” rear vent barb. The maximum backfill pressure is 15PSI. In an overpressure situation, a simple, built-in safety relief allows gasses to escape via a spring loaded tempered window.

    Flexible Pumping / Feedthru Connection Ports
    For faster evaporation, purging or drying the CVO-10 includes Cascade’s MAX EVAP connection kit. The MAX EVAP connection kit secures to the oven’s rear 1” dia KF-25 port located on the back center of the chamber. The MAX EVAP connection never reduces flow by continuing with 1” diameter vacuum rated clear lines, a 1” dia KF-25 side mounted vacuum valve and KF-25 fittings and hardware. This KF-25 port can also be used to run temperature feedthrus, or monitoring sensors inside the vacuum chamber during processing.

    Ergonomically Designed, Easy Quarter-Turn Valves
    For anyone that has struggled with consistently turning the small, round, low-quality vacuum/vent valves, relief is in sight. You will love our large, quarter-turn vent valve. Your wrists will thank you!

    Faster Venting With Large ½” Diameter Vent Lines
    For large capacity production environments, time is money. The CVO-10 vacuum oven has larger than industry standard vent lines.  ½” diameter vent lines means operators spend less time venting the oven.

    ANSI Rated Tempered Glass + USA Made Steel
    Cascade ovens are made in Oregon, USA with high quality materials. Our glass is NGI-USA Tempered and certified to ANSI Z97.1.2007  16CFR / 201 11. Our door handles are rugged brushed steel, not plastic. Our vacuum vessels are constructed with American made steel. We’ve tried lower cost, imported steel. But over time, vacuum chambers made of lesser quality/lower tolerance material cannot withstand the flex and pressure changes of vacuum pumping/venting/purging. This can deteriorate vacuum integrity and the oven will lost its ability to hold vacuum.


    Need A Complete CVO-10 Vacuum Drying or Purge System?

    Cascade has taken the guesswork out of pairing the right vacuum oven with the proper pump. We offer two complete 10 cubic foot vacuum oven packages that have everything you need to begin vacuum drying on a large scale.

    The CVO-10 PRO Package  pairs the CVO-10 with the clean, quiet, powerful Agilent IDP15 vacuum pump. Purchase the CVO-10 PRO Package and save $1642.86 over retail.

    The TVO-5 DOUBLE UP Package  offers the same 10 cubic foot processing capacity, but in two ovens for smaller, multiple batch management. The TVO-5 DOUBLE UP Package is also self-contained on its own mobile, industrial cart. The TVO-5 DOUBLE UP Package saves $1642.86 over retail.


    A Vacuum Cold Trap for High Production Environments

    For high production environments, adding a vacuum cold trap keeps the vacuum pump running optimally, extends time between maintenance and allows reclamation of outgassed materials. Cascade’s MAXTRAP50 is ideally suited for trapping in these high production environments where typical lab grade traps, with small inlets and outlets can slow things down.
