This used Buchi Glass Oven B-580 was in operation at a UK laboratory until closure. After that, it was transported to us and the performance was tested in our laboratory. The instrument was found to be in good condition, only some signs of use are shown.
The offered used Buchi Glass Oven B-580 is suitable for the drying, distillation, or sublimation of 100 to 250 mL samples under inert gas or vacuum if required. A glass tube with an electrically conducting coating acts as the heating element. The sample is heated in an appropriate drying tube or flask. The process and can be monitored through the glass oven wall. Drying tube assembly consists of tube which enters oven and end cap fitted with stopcock with vacuum and atmosphere/inert gas connections. Sample is placed in drying tube, which attaches to end cap with vacuum-tight flange. End cap is designed to hold desiccant to absorb water driven off by heat. Oven may be used for sublimation using optional sublimation insert.
