Vacuum Ovens

At Pacific Combustion, we offer a full line of Lindberg Blue M ovens including Blue M vacuum ovens. These vacuum ovens are used for drying parts when lack of oxygen is preferred. Lindberg vacuum ovens typically use Argon gas to replace the oxygen in the chamber. The lack of oxygen prevents oxidation of the metals parts during the drying cycle. Blue M vacuum ovens are used in environmental testing, aged testing, brazing and sintering of metal parts and electronic components. We pride ourselves in offering competitive pricing with exceptional service at Pacific Combustion. Call today for pricing on Lindberg Blue M ovens!

Lindberg Blue M vacuum ovens are designed for drying, curing, out gassing, aging, process control and other applications which require elevated temperature in reduced atmospheres or vacuum/purge with non-flammable and inert atmospheres. Select from three sizes, all with digital electronic control, built-in over temperature protection, and a fully flexible vacuum/purge/release system for a range of uses. Choose from deluxe stainless steel or painted exterior finish.
