Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M 16.4L B2 OTC LGO Box Furnace
Part Number: BF51731BC-1
Thermo Scientific LGO Series Box Furnaces feature the latest technical advances in heating elements, insulation and temperature control, all integrated into a self-contained cabinet.
Features of the BF51731BC-1 Laboratory Furnace
Includes the B2 Controller
Single setpoint with one ramp to setpoint.
The ramp is used to vary the heat-up rate to your specified setpoint. The furnace will then hold the temperature at a set level.
An LED display simultaneously shows both setpoint and actual furnace temperatures.
See bottom of page for more details on controllers.
Selectable self-tuning PID control (proportional, integral, derivative) provides optimum thermal process and prevents overshoot
Control panel designed for easy access and maintenance
Main power ON/OFF switch on control panel
Adjustable high-limit overtemperature protection
Can be configured to display temperature in either °C or °F
Over Temperature Control (OTC)
Adjustable digital overtemperature control
Protects furnace and load in the event of primary control circuit failure
Overrides main controller and shuts off power to furnace if high limit is reached
Manual reset required for safety
Operates via magnetic contacts through signal from independent thermocouple
High Quality Features and Construction
Variable heat-up rate eliminates thermal shock to materials with quick heat-up and cool-down rates
Vertical Lift Door
Air vent (1in. dia., top) and air inlet (1/4" Male Pipe Thread, rear) for inert atmosphere exchange; will experience some leakage at door
Self-tuning, digital instrumentation for precise temperature setpoint and display
Platinel II thermocouple for long-term stability
Safety door switch to interrupt power to heating element when door is opened; protects heating element and minimizes exposure to end-user
One shelf position in center of furnace. A removable, two-part shelf is included.
Moldatherm hearthplate supports load and prevents damage due to spillage
NOTE: Requires customer-supplied power cord or hardwiring
About the Controllers B2, C2, and D2
This furnace is available with three different controllers allowing various levels of control and programs. All of the controllers are digital. The BF51731BC-1 has the B2 controller.
