Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M 55.3L C2 OTC LGO Box Furnace
Part Number: BF51842BC-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 BF51842BC-1 Laboratory Furnace
Includes the C2 Controller
Programmable with one (1) stored program of sixteen (16) segments. Each segment includes one ramp and one dwell, so you can program 16 ramp/dwell cycles.
The ramp is used to vary the heat-up rate to your specified setpoint. The furnace will then dwell (hold the temperature) at a set level for a specified time.
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
Side-hinge door for convenient operation and full chamber access
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
Three shelf positions; 1 two-part shelf included with furnace
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 BF51842BC-1 has the C2 controller.
