Omega provides a choice of three temperature controllers with either analog or digital temperature selectors. They offer temperature management across the range -40 to 200 °C with stability up to ±0.005 °C. Each model has a hardwearing, splash proof casing with all submerged parts being made of either stainless steel or high-temperature self-extinguishing plastic. All models come equipped with powerful pressure circulating pumps with external circulation connections. With three temperature controllers and five stainless steel baths of capacity 8 to 48 liters, there are a total of 15 different systems that will fit most laboratory and industrial uses. Inlet and outlet pipes at the rear of the controller can be used for external circulation to another piece of equipment or sealed for circulation within the bath itself. The baths are also suitable for below ambient applications, and can be used below ambient temperatures with a cooling coil or with RCTB-3000 Series Dip and Flow Coolers.
These new baths are designed to be used with an HCTB-3000 Series thermo-regulator, and come with sturdy carrying handles for added safety. The four smaller models have seam-free stainless steel interiors for ease of maintenance. The largest bath, Bath-48, is of welded construction. All baths have stoved enamel steel outer cases.
Dip and Flow Coolers
The RCTB-3000 Series Dip and Flow coolers are designed for use at below ambient temperatures down to -35 °C. The Flow Coolers work in sync with a thermo-regulator by continually removing heat from the bath liquid using the heat exchanger which is part of the unit.
The cooling head of the Dip Cooler fits discreetly into the corner of the bath and can be fixed into place with a specially designed mounting bracket. The dip cooler is recommended over cooling with tap water as it conserves water and is easier and more convenient to use.
