Vacuum applications offer many benefits

The intelligent, modular system: two sizes and two types of heating Series 6000 vacutherm® ovens uncompromisingly meet all demands relating to heat treatment in vacuum, whether simple routines or complicated processes up to 400 °C are involved. Starting with high quality standard models, application specific configurations can be realised through selection from a wide range of equipment options.

Vacuum applications offer many benefits:

  • Gentle drying of heat sensitive materials
  • Significantly reduced drying times
  • Residue free drying of intricately designed parts
  • Elimination of oxidation associated with heat treatment
  • Safe drying of flammable solvents
  • Targeted recovery of degassed products


  • Modular design
  • Two types of heating
  • Temperatures to 200, 300 and 400 °C
  • Total volumes of 53 and 128 l

Standard features

  • User friendly Kelvitron® t microprocessor controller for jacket heated ovens and Digicon® multi-channel Controller for shelf heated ovens
  • Upper limit cut-out for oven and product protection
  • Certified safety (GS-mark)
  • Vacuum chamber made of stainless steel (1.4571), electropolished, 100 % rounded corners, easy-to-clean and corrosion resistant
  • Stainless steel vacuum fittings, tubing and ball valve
  • Analogue pressure display
  • Rapid ventilation valve for quick ventilation of the chamber
  • Additional precision valve for gentle ventilation
  • Inert gas connection for controlled atmosphere. A safety valve prevents overpressure inside the vacuum chamber
  • DN 25 access port in the rear wall

Two types of heating

The vacutherm® 6000 series is available with two different types of heating:

  • model M, jacket heating:

Heat transfer from the vacuum chamber via the shelves to the load

  • model P, shelf heating:

The shelves incorporate heating coils. Heat is transferred directly to the load.

  • The benefits of shelf heating

The direct energy transportation ensures rapid heating-up and process times. Drying process times can be reduced as much as 6 fold compared to standard drying methods.
