Fine glass and stainless steel. The elegant display has characterised Memmert lab ovens for many years now. With the newest generation of appliances it has become intelligent and interactive. Meet the Memmert ControlCOCKPIT!
All adjustable parameters such as temperature (either Celsius or Fahrenheit), relative humidity, fan speed or exhaust air flap position can be set up in three quick steps without getting lost in a complicated menu. During operation all status messages, the current status of heating, ventilation and air flap position as well as time and alarm signals are visible simultaneously.
For many years, structured stainless steel has been the unmistakable feature of Memmert ovens, incubators and climate chambers in the laboratory. Functional design in its most elegant form: scratch-resistant, hygienic, robust and durable.
Wherever Memmert ovens and heating baths are used, the superiority of high-quality stainless steel can be seen compared to coated sheet steel, which can corrode very quickly when in constant use.
For the outer housing of all Memmert appliances, structured stainless steel is used (rear walls are made of galvanised steel sheets); and for the inner chamber and sliding shelves as well as for housing, interior basin and accessories for every heating bath, stainless steel of class W-St. 1.4301 (ASTM 304) is used. Since aggressive substances are frequently used in the vacuum drying oven, the inner chamber and thermoshelves are made of stainless steel W-St. 1.4404 (ASTM 316L), and the tubing is made of stainless steel W-St. 1.4571 (ASTM 316i).
The surface roughness of conventional stainless steel can neither be felt with the fingers nor seen with the bare eyes. And yet in some circumstances they can provide a large surface for germs only a few micrometers in length. For working with biological materials the interior of the CO2-incubator INCOmed can be additionally electropolished. At the same time the corrosion resistance of the material is increased by this procedure.
We think that the programming of a lab oven should be possible from anywhere in the world without problems. For this reason, Memmert devices feature state-of-the-art communication interfaces.
An ethernet connection for reading out logs is standard for all new generation Memmert lab ovens. For appliances with TwinDISPLAY the ethernet connection can additionally be used for uploading and setting up profiles from the software AtmoCONTROL as well as for online logging. Appliances with TwinDISPLAY offer a USB port on the ControlCOCKPIT for the direct upload of programmes, for reading out logs or protecting appliances with individual user-ID function. By the way: the individual allocation of IP addresses is possible directly via ControlCOCKPIT.
All Memmert lab ovens feature an electronic temperature monitoring system, a mechanical temperature limiter acc. to DIN 12880 and an integrated auto-diagnostic system with optical and acoustic alarm as a standard.
TwinDISPLAY appliances are equipped with an overtemperature monitor as well as two high-grade platinum temperature sensors Pt100 for mutual monitoring and operation transfer at same working temperature in case of an error. Particularly in ramp operation, the integrated temperature monitoring system AutoSAFETY can be activated to automatically follow the set temperature with a freely selectable tolerance. Individual MIN-/MAX-values can be set for over/undertemperature as well as for all other parameters like relative humidity, CO2, O2 and pressure (vacuum).
With the AtmoCONTROL software, alarm notifications can be sent out to an e-mail address. The optional MobileALERT makes it possible to send the alarm notifications by SMS to a mobile phone.
The technical service of Memmert has a demanding list of tasks. Supply of spare parts, maintenance, repair and commissioning, IQ/OQ/PQ qualification, customer training and software instruction. Good to know that a global network of service partners ensures that the users of Memmert appliances are never left alone with their questions.
