An oil bath is a laboratory heating device that uses a heated bath of oil to maintain a stable and uniform temperature for various chemical and biological applications. It consists of a container filled with a high-temperature oil, typically silicone oil or mineral oil, and a heating element or heater that warms the oil to a set temperature. Lab glassware or reaction vessels are immersed in the heated oil bath, allowing precise control of the temperature at which chemical reactions occur or samples are incubated. Our oil baths are widely used in experiments, including distillation, reflux, and the synthesis of temperature-sensitive compounds. Their advantage lies in their ability to provide even and gentle heating without direct contact with the heating element, reducing the risk of overheating or thermal shock to the samples. They are essential tools in chemistry, biology, and materials science laboratories for maintaining temperature-controlled environments.
