Water baths

In developing its temperature control appliances and heating baths, Memmert pursues a primary goal: a controlled atmosphere. And this has been the case since 1947, when the first Memmert hot air steriliser left our company. A user of a Memmert water bath can also rely on reliability, user-friendliness and an excellent price-performance ratio.

It is the precise control technology that ensures optimum temperature uniformity and stability in a Memmert water bath. At least the three-stage safety system guarantees optimum safety in every temperature control bath.

Ideal for the temperature control of ointments, emulsions, samples, plates and nutrient solutions in the laboratory, as well as warm storage and calibration in the industrial segment


Water baths in the laboratory

A water bath has many applications in research and industry. 

  • Temperature control of balms and emulsions
  • Temperature control and incubation of cultures
  • Temperature control of samples, plaques and breeding media in the laboratory
  • Warming up baby food
  • Fermentation, homogenisation
  • Heating of rolling bearings before installation
  • Heating of materials in reaction vessels such as beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks, round flasks etc.
  • Corrosion testing, material testing

How water baths work

For heating, the chamber load is exposed to defined temperatures in the interior of an electrically heated and electronically controlled water bath. The thermal energy is transferred to the chamber load by heat conduction. The heat always flows in the direction of the lower temperature.

Special accessories for the Memmert water bath (shaking water bath)

  • A Memmert water bath from size 15 becomes a shaking water bath with an electronically controlled shaking device. Horizontal shaking movements are adjustable between 30 and 150 strokes per minute.
  • Compact cooling unit for the water bath, precisely adjustable to ±0.1 K: The "Snap-On" Peltier cooling unit CDP115 enables precise temperature control in a water bath below room temperature without cumbersome, external cooling equipment.
