The Techne IFB-52 fluidised FIFB52D bath by Cole Parmer is a sand bath for heat treatment, cleaning, temperature calibrations, and reactive analysis (exothermic and endothermic reactions). The working diameter is 259mm, with a depth of 660mm.

The sand bath will remove most polymers from tooling, including PVC, PET, PTFE, and PEEK, without abrasion to the tool or mold. Parts immersed in the bath are cleaned by the high temperature (up to 600°C) environment within a bath media of fluidised aluminium oxide that instantly starts to degrade plastic to carbon, which then leaves the bath as CO2. Baskets are available for cleaning small parts.

All baths require a dry air supply or an inert gas such as nitrogen and argon. Each unit comes with a front panel flowmeter to adjust airflow with settings for optimal flow per temperature. Note: When cleaning parts, baths should be operated in a hood or a well-ventilated area. Extraction collar and fans are available to ensure proper removal of fumes.

Suitable for cleaning of tooling, components, systems and parts (dies, breaker plates, nozzles, tools, tips, spinnerets, extruder screws, manifolds, etc.) The bath will remove almost all polymers, including plastic, paint, epoxy, rubber and adhesives, and other hydrocarbon-based products such as oils, fluids, grease, lubricants and coatings.

This instant heating and minimised quenching gives shorter cleaning times than conventional ovens. The even and consistent heat of the bath significantly reduces metal fatigue and tool damage.

Typical cleaning times range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on bath loading, temperature and amount of material to be cleaned.

Applications include tempering, annealing, nitriding, distillation, curing, exothermic and endothermic reactions, and thermal analysis of devices, components and materials.

  • Fast cleaning minimises production equipment downtime
  • Dry, inert, nontoxic aluminium oxide is a safer alternative than dangerous chemicals or solvents
