TPS Ships Blue M Lab Oven for Prominent Cosmetics Manufacturer


Thermal Product Solutions (TPS), a global manufacturer of thermal processing equipment, announced the shipment of a Blue M lab oven to the cosmetics industry. The lab oven will be used in the customer’s aerosol lab for shelf-life testing of aerosol cans at 55°C (131°F).

The maximum temperature of this oven is 302°F, and the work chamber is 37"W x 37"D x 48"H. To create a safer interior, this oven does not have heating elements and hot spots, which are common sources of ignition if an aerosol can(s) leaks or ruptures during shelf-life testing. This also allows the customer to process larger quantities of aerosol cans. As an added engineered-to-order feature, an MSA LEL Monitor is installed that is set at 5 percent LFL. The MSA monitor will detect hydrocarbon gases that may be released during testing. Features of this Blue M oven include: intrinsically safe interior, no heating elements or heat spots that are sources of ignition, and MSA LEL monitor to detect hydrocarbon gases that may be released during testing.

Blue M is recognized as an industry leader in the design, engineering, manufacture, and after-market support of industrial and laboratory ovens that are ideal for a wide range of applications. Blue M products are available in bench top, stacked, and cabinet models to accommodate a variety of capabilities and footprints.
