Cole-Parmer FSB-200-series fluidised baths
High temperature dry baths which are pollution free and safer replacements for traditional oil and salt baths.
A fluidised bath consists of a loosely packed mass of solid particles through which an upward flow of gas is passed. In this fluidised state the particles become mobile, and the bath as a whole displays many of the properties of a liquid. However, since the bath is composed of tiny inert aluminium oxide particles, freezing, boiling and evaporation are totally eliminated.
The dry, inert particles do not adhere to immersed objects, neither do they cause corrosion. The particles have a gentle motion that is non-abrasive.
The mobility of the bath ensures rapid heat transfer and excellent temperature uniformity.
These baths require a clean air supply at a pressure of 21KN/m2 (3psi) and maximum flow of 57 litres/minute.
