Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M 5.3L C2 Moldatherm Box Furnace
Part Number: BF51866A-1
Thermo Scientific Lindberg/Blue M Moldatherm 1100°C box furnaces feature a choice of microprocessor-based single setpoint or programmable control instrumentation. They are available in four popular chamber sizes to meet the most demanding laboratory applications. These furnaces include unique insulation and heating element composites to minimize outer surface temperatures while maintaining uniform heat distribution within the chamber.
Features of the BF51866A-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 feature sets best control parameters for the thermal process
PID control (proportional, integral, derivative) prevents overshoot
Main power ON/OFF switch on control panel
Controlled heat-up rate eliminates thermal shock to materials
Quick heat-up and cool-down rates
Adjustable high-limit overtemperature protection
Simultaneous LED display of actual temperature vs. setpoint
Can be configured to display temperature in either °C or °F
Unique double wall minimizes exterior surface temperatures for operator safety and energy efficiency
Side-hinge door for convenient operation and full chamber access
Long-life Type K thermocouple
Air vent (1in. dia., top) and air inlet (1/4" Male Pipe Thread, rear) for inert atmosphere exchange; will experience some leakage at door
Removable and replaceable Moldatherm hearth plate supports load and prevents damage due to spillage
Energy efficient Moldatherm insulation with embedded heating elements
Safety door switch to interrupt power to heating element when door is opened; protects heating element and minimizes exposure to end-user
About the Controllers B2 and C2
This furnace is available with two different controllers allowing various levels of control and programs. All of the controllers are digital. The BF51866A-1 has the C2 controller.
