Core Drying

Heated Vacuum Dessicator

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: HVD

The heated vacuum dessicator is designed especially to dry a bunch of core samples under vacuum. This operation is required to remove humidity of core samples before gas permeability or porosity measurements. The system includes an heated dessicator and a vacuum pump. The dessicator includes a machined stainless steel heating plate with a glass bell, designed to withstand the pressure difference between in and outside. The sealing is secured by a viton O-ring between the heating plate and the bell. The samples are dried by direct contact with the heating plate. In the heated vacuum dessicator a small volume and the compact design guarantee a short heating time. It is easy and safe to operate, requires hardly any maintenance, and visibility is perfect.



Forced-Air Drying Oven

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: FADO

The air forced drying oven enables efficient drying of core samples after cleaning with solvents before permeability or porosity measurements. This oven is composed of a robust air forced convection air bath, a variable speed turbine, an electronic temperature regulator and a timer . Two sizes are available.



Vacuum Drying Oven

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: VDO

The vacuum drying oven enables fast drying of core under vacuum. This oven is composed of a robust vacuum air bath, an electronic temperature regulator and digital vacuum control through solenoid valves. Two sizes can be selected.



Humidity Drying Oven

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: HDO

The humidity drying oven is used to dry core samples under constant relative humidity condition, in particular it is very important when the core contains hydratable clays or gypsum. This oven is composed of a robust air bath, an electronic temperature regulator, a water vapor injection system, a capacitance probe to control humidity level and a timer.
