    Laboratory Sand Baths

    The Labec laboratory sand bath is available in an analogue dial model (max temperature 320ºC) and a digital version (max temp 350ºC). With an aluminium alloy heating plate and a stainless steel surround to contain the sand, this robust unit provides a uniformly distributed temperature over the whole surface.


    What does a laboratory sand bath do?

    A laboratory sand bath is made from a container filled with heated sand. It is used to evenly heat another container, usually during a chemical reaction.

    What is the use of sand baths in a laboratory?

    The primary use of a sand bath is to provide controlled and even heating to laboratory samples or reaction vessels. Laboratory sand baths are used extensively in experiments requiring stable and uniform heat distribution. 

    What are the typical applications of a laboratory sand bath in laboratory heating and reactions?

    Sand baths typically find application in laboratory procedures that require controlled heating. Examples include drying liquids, evaporating liquids, heating chemical reactions, and determining the melting point of solid materials.

    Why should you use a laboratory sand bath instead of a water bath?

    Choosing between a sand bath and a water bath depends on the specifics of the experiment, such as the desired temperature range, heating profile, and sample type.

    What are the benefits of using a laboratory sand bath?

    The benefits of a laboratory sand bath include uniform heating, gradual heating, reduced need for stirring, spillage prevention, reduced risk of breakage, and increased safety.
