If you are drying, softening, curing, or sterilizing a product you have a choice of ovens to get the job done in your laboratory environment. Cascade offers both vacuum drying ovens and laboratory drying ovens to remove moisture, solvents, and other contaminants from a product. Which oven is right for your application? There are several key differences between vacuum and forced-air drying, but the main takeaway is that vacuum ovens are ideal for products that are temperature sensitive. A vacuum oven removes unwanted compounds using a change in pressure at a temperature that won’t harm the product. Laboratory drying ovens, on the other hand, use heated air to remove unwanted compounds and, because they do not need to withstand the pressures of vacuum, laboratory drying ovens can be more cost effective and drying can be done on a larger scale. The guide below will help you determine whether you need one of Cascade’s Vacuum Ovens or Laboratory Drying & Decarboxylation Ovens that offer forced-air or convection style drying.
