    Thermo Scientific™ Precision General-Purpose Water Baths consist of eight models, including dual chamber and shallow form, with analog or digital control. Easy-to-maintain, seamless-stainless steel interior chamber and epoxy powder-coated exterior are resistant to corrosion and chemical damage.

    Rugged, high-performance baths maintain water temperature from ambient to 95°C or 99.9°C (depending on model) with ±0.2°C uniformity (at 37°C) and ±0.1°C control resolution (at 37°C) with stainless-steel gable cover.

    • Choice of analog or digital temperature control
    • Chamber capacities ranging from 1.5 to 43L
    • Front-mounted controls simplify operation
    • Overtemperature safety circuitry prevents thermal runaway
    • Dual-chamber models have independent controls for operating at different temperatures

    Analog Baths

    • Easy-to-use analog controls and hydraulic thermostat are ideal for applications in which temperature setpoints seldom change
    • Backup high-limit safety thermostat
    • Illuminated power switch

    Digital Baths
