We have used fluidized heated sand baths when we needed higher temps than we could get with water baths.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Options to replace oil baths for heating


Good morning:


I need to offer some options to replace oil (silicone or mineral) with a different material for heating baths.  I’m also looking at heating block options and have a number of suppliers to review – cost may be an issue here.


Ideas?   The Google has failed me this morning.
