FB-08C precision fluidised bath (auto-air)

The FB-08C Precision fluidised bath has exceptional temperature stability and uniformity as well as automatic airflow control and RS-232 comms.

Our most popular Fluidised bath is used to carry out shape setting (heat treatment processing) of Stents from Nitinol wire in a safe, precisely controlled and uniform manner.

This model is specially designed to allow the operating temperature of the fluidised bath to be adjusted from a remote source while the bath is unsupervised. An automatic fluidising air control system is fitted which adjusts the air flow rate accordingly to suit the set temperature of the bath.

Where an ultra stable temperature condition is required a dead bed state can be programmed into the control system. During this condition the air and electrical supply to the fluidised bed are switched off. For a period of up to 6 minutes the fluidised bed becomes an isothermal mass without heat input and very low heat loss. Under these conditions the stability at the centre of the aluminium oxide is ±0.01°C over the range of the unit.

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 - open FB-08C Accessories in "Further Information"

The Dust Suppression System FFB08DS1 accessory enables the FB-08C user to bolt-on a probe holder and chimney assembly thus sealing the FB-08C 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-08C. 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.
To replace alumina 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.
