The Techne IFB-51 and IFB-52 are safe, efficient and cost effective fluidized baths for cleaning tooling, components, systems and parts (dies, breaker plates, nozzles, tools, tips, spinnerets, extruder screws, manifolds, etc). The fluidized baths will remove almost all polymers, including plastic, paint, epoxy, rubber and adhesives, as well as other hydrocarbon-based products such as oils, fluids, grease, lubricants and coatings.

A fluidized bath consists of a loosely packed mass of aluminum oxide particles through which an upward flow of air is passed. In this state the particles and bath act as a liquid. Heaters radiate heat into the aluminum oxide and fluidization stirs the bath to evenly distribute heat. The result is excellent thermal stability and uniformity, making fluidized baths a cost effective, environmentally-friendly safe alternative to oil, salt, ultrasonic and molten baths, ovens and furnaces.

The Techne IFB-51 and IFB-52 industrial fluidized baths are very popular units due to their economical price and smaller size. They offer a front panel mounted rotameter for adjustment of the fluidizing air flow and are ready for use out of the box with included charge of aluminum oxide. The Techne IFB-51 and IFB-52 have a temperature range of 50 to 600°C (122 to 1112°F). The IFB-51 bath has a working volume of 9.5 x 13", a maximum work load of 25 lbs and heat-up time of 195 minutes, while the IFB-52 bath has a working volume of 9.5 x 26", a maximum work load of 50 lbs and a heat-up time of 240 minutes. Both models require a 220 to 240 V single phase voltage supply.

The excellent thermal performance of Techne Industrial Fluidized Baths makes them a good choice for basic heat treatment, test and calibration as well as reactive analysis. Applications include:

  • Tempering
  • Shape setting
  • Annealing
  • Nitriding
  • Distillation
  • Curing
  • Exothermic and endothermic reactions
  • Thermal analysis of devices, components and materials
