Cabinet Oven, EB 12-II

The EB 12-II cabinet oven has high air speed with laminar flow from bottom to top, and a factory set throttle to give a fixed air exchange rate of 7 (default) or 14 changes per hour, which meets the requirements in ISO 188 method B.

The EB 12-II is a cabinet oven for precision ageing of rubber and plastics under controlled conditions. The oven is supplied in one size, with 50 litres useful volume. The settings are done on the PLC colour touch screen.

Elastocon’s cabinet ageing ovens have excellent temperature stability and distribution achieved by using an inner chamber with a controlled air flow. The temperature accuracy is very important for heat ageing tests, as a 1 °C error in temperature corresponds to around 10 % error in test time.

Two temperature sensors are used, one for temperature control and one for measuring the temperature close to the samples. This sensor can also be connected to a logging software.

These ovens are ideal for ageing finished products and large test pieces which are unsuitable for cell ovens. Rods are supplied with this oven for accommodating most types of samples.
