A stove is a widely used instrument in clinical laboratories for drying and sterilizing glass and metal containers. According to the mode of operation, there are typically two types of laboratory stoves: those operating by natural convection and those operating by forced convection. 

Laboratory stoves, usually made of stainless steel, which provides great durability, have a microprocessor that allows to maintain a uniform temperature, which can be adjusted digitally. Natural convection stoves are characterized by extracting air from the environment in which the stove is located. And forced convection stoves, they generate air inside the equipment in a forced way, and this air is at room temperature.

Types of Laboratory Stoves a Laboratory May Need

Vacuum ovens

The vacuum stove stands out for its intelligent special features, which allows to perform processes of gentle drying at the same time, with precise and fast temperature measurements, in addition to the thermo trays where the heating is immediate, adjustable and of simple control.

Calibration methods are technical mechanisms that are executed in order to determine that the equipment fulfills its proper functions, so that the heating times are short and the heating is carried out maintaining the temperature uniformly. Each thermo tray is individually calibrated.

Drying Ovens

Ovens, also known as drying stoves, are devices used to dry and sterilize glass and metal containers used in various laboratory processes. The laboratory stoves allow to carry out the sterilization by dry heat, where hot air is used to carry out this process, these equipments allow a uniform distribution of heat inside, where the material is exposed to temperatures of approximately 170ºC for 2 hours. 

Dry heat sterilization works by destroying microorganisms by oxidation of their cellular components. This is a less efficient process than wet heat sterilization because microorganisms die more quickly when in the presence of water because it allows their protein configuration to be altered more easily and provides a means of evenly distributing heat throughout the sterilizing equipment's internal chamber. For this reason, to achieve the sterilization of the material using dry heat, higher temperatures should be applied for a longer time.

Operating Stoves

The stove or also called drying oven is a device used to dry and sterilize glass and metal containers. This is achieved, thanks to the fact that inside the house the temperature is higher than in the environment. According to its mode of operation there are basically two types of stove: those operating by natural convection and those operating by forced convection.

Sterilization can be carried out through a laboratory stove, which becomes effective inside the stove and is called dry heat sterilization, which is carried out only at 180 °C for 2 hours. During this process the glass or metal is heated by the air at high temperature, eliminating the possibility of any kind of biological activity.
