FB-08 precision fluidised bath

The FB-08 Precision fluidised bath has exceptional temperature stability and uniformity making it the ideal choice for critical temperature calibration and heat treatment processes.

Our Fluidised baths have become the markets prefered choice for carrying out shape setting (heat treatment processing) of Stents from Nitinol wire in a safe, precisely controlled and uniform manner. Platinum/tungsten products are now also being processed successfully.
With lower running costs they are a safer alternative to salt baths giving much better results than with conventional ovens.
These units offer fast temperature immersions as the fluidised alumina behaves like a liquid.

These unit are suitable for many other applications including thermal testing of sensitive components such as semiconductor devices, wire product testing, delicate transducers and they may also be used as a constant temperature environment for chemical reactions.

When used with the optional Probe holder accessory for comparison calibrations of temperature sensors the stability and uniformity are better than 0.010°C in dead bed mode.

Dust Suppression System - see "FB-08 Accessories"

The Dust Suppression System FFB08DS1 accessory enables the FB-08 user to bolt-on a probe holder and chimney assembly thus sealing the FB-08 and making it suitable for use in a calibration lab where airborne dust must be avoided.

The user is then able to insert temperature probes for calibration purposes, whilst all aluminium oxide is fully contained within the bath. This accessory also allows silent running of the FB-08. The integrated chimney contains a filter in the upper section and a small exhaust pipe right at the top to prevent pressure build-up. The FFB08DS1 is the best solution for calibrating probes in a fluidised bath within a calibration laboratory.

Replacement Alumina (fine, white aluminium oxide) see "FB-08 Accessories"

To replace sand lost through normal operation and removal of items from the bath. Accept no other substitute as performance and functionality cannot be guaranteed with third party suppliers.
