Case studies

Let us take you into the fascinating world of Memmert appliances, which we have collected on our user platform  AtmoSAFE. From turbo drying of vast amounts of powder in the vacuum drying oven to artificial ageing of cables in the heating oven to climate testing of electronic devices in the climate oven. 

If you have questions regarding a special appliance please don’t hesitate to give us a shout:

Comparing various drying procedures at the TU Weihenstephan

Vacuum drying is part of the basic education in nutritional sciences. Students at the TU Weihen-stephan get to know the process by experiments using the vacuum drying oven. Basic research at the TU Weihenstephan. It is no exaggeration that the Science Centre Weihenstephan of the Technical University Munich (in short, WZW) is referred to as the home of the nutritional sciences and the environmental sciences in Germany.

The vacuum oven at the Chair for Polymer Materials

The Chair for Polymer Materials at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, uses the vacuum oven for drying, curing, degassing and polymerisation. From jewellery to semiconductors: our world is polymer. They have become an indispensable part of our daily lives, and polymers have even found their way into the art world.

Titanium: Splendid, light, corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic

The Nuremberg high-tech company GfE Metalle und Materialien uses two models of the Memmert vacuum drying oven in the manufacture of titanium powder. Not only its complex production makes titanium so valuable, but also the fascinating combination of all its qualities: As sturdy as steel, but considerably lighter, extremely corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic.

Determination of dry content and moisture content in vaccum

Farmacéutica Paraguaya, in short, Fapasa, is the largest exporting pharmaceutical company in Paraguay. Apart from drugs for oncological, urological and gynaecological applications, the company also produces a large range of OTC products, nutritional supplements and painkillers.

Development of polymer membranes

The Nanoscience Institute of Aragón in Zaragoza is supported by Memmert vacuum ovens in its research, in particular into the development of a polymer membrane with improved permeability and selectivity.

Peltier-cooled incubator IPP, ideal for protein crystallography

Hardly any vibrations, almost no noise, highly precise and accurate. The PhosphoSites research group at the University Hospital in Frankfurt, doing basic research on protein kinases, cultivates its protein crystals in a Memmert incubator IPP.

Preparation of samples of marine sediments in the cooled incubator

The mission of the research ship Belgica is the exploration of the marine ecosystem of the North Sea. The marine scientists on board use the journey home, which takes several days, to dry out their samples of marine sediments in the ICP incubator in the so-called wet laboratory.

Construction material concrete: efficient test assembly for various concrete mixes.

Only a few materials other than the construction material concrete can withstand such loads: In order to be eventually categorised as frost-resistant, concrete components have to undergo hours-long warm and cold baths alternating between –20 °C and +20 °C 56 times.

Controlled atmosphere: Even the beehive is 100% AtmoSAFE

Memmert has become rather enamoured with the honey bee. Consequently, for this reason and indeed many other reasons, we are supporting the Hobos project. This exciting project aims to bring this wonderful creature, which is irreplaceable to our planet, closer to both schoolchildren and students throughout the world.

Science can be exciting and fun

Outside scientific circles, few people are aware just how exciting working in a laboratory can be. For this reason, the news magazine FOCUS and the vfa, the German Association of Research-based Pharmaceutical Companies, have presented awards to photographers, now for the fifth time, who document the fascination of science and research in a spectacular, original and illustrative manner. 104 photographers, with over 400 pictures, submitted entries in 2009.
