Benchtops

Criterion Temperature Bench-Top Chamber

Wide temperature range from -70ºC to +180ºC

The extended temperature ranges of the Criterion series make testing at extreme conditions possible without buying a larger, stand-alone chamber.

42L compact design

The criterion models 42L interior is 85mm wider than traditional Bench-Tops, yet the exterior is 20% narrower. The vertical configuration saves bench space, plus the refrigeration system ventilation allows installation against a wall for even more space savings.

Faster change rate (heat/cool) up to 5°C/min.

The Criterion series can cycle temperatures at a rate of up to 5°C/min. without requiring liquid nitrogen. Significant test time can be saved, as well as creating added thermal stress on your samples. To demonstrate performance, ESPEC uses the international standard IEC 60068 3-5 measured at the supply air. Temperature cycles are run from hot to cold extremes, and the middle 80% of the transition is timed to determine performance. Your actual cycling results will vary depending on methodology, including the start and end temperatures, and the amount of samples loaded.

  • Lowest temperature: -20, -35, or -70°C (-4, -35, or -100°F)
  • Highest temperature: 180°C (354°F)
  • Chamber sizes: 1.5 or 4 cubic feet
  • Fully programmable with Watlow F4 controller

The extended temperature ranges of the Criterion series make testing at extreme conditions possible without buying a larger, stand alone chamber. Two chamber sizes are available, as well.

The programmer includes a temperature alarm as just one part of ESPEC’s three-tiered over-temperature protection system. A thermal fuse and a user-set independent limit are also included. In addition, a specimen power terminal allows the user to safely operate powered equipment inside or with the chamber.
