MEGATHERM Recirculating Bath

General Information

The Kinetics Megatherm™ High Temperature Quartz Recirculating bath is manufactured with pure fused quartz for low contamination environments and high temperature applications with three important considerations in mind: safety, reliability and clean operation. The Megatherm Quartz Center Feed Recirculating baths operate in conjunction with a variety of pneumatic diaphragm pumps. It’s four sided cascading inner weir with serrated edge, TEFLON® diaphragm pump, TEFLON filter chamber, and TEFLON plumbing all contribute towards a safe and clean operating environment. The heater design was developed to provide efficient heat transfer, rapid bath heat-up, durability and longevity. Flow rates will depend on tank, pump size, and filter porosity


Molded Seamless Tank

MEGATHERM systems are designed with a seamless, molded quartz inner tank, delivering a low contamination and particle-free environment.

Secondary Containment

The inner quartz tank is protected by a flame retardant polypropylene containment tank with an exclusive flange design that offers a labyrinth style seal protecting the heater pads from acid fumes and fluid overflow.

Redundant Over Temperature Safety

Each Megatherm has indirect heating elements for fast and reliable heating. This is accomplished by using external panel heaters mounted to the outside of the quartz tank. The quartz tanks have two redundant safety circuits that are placed directly on the heater pads. The first one is a bi-metallic snap switch and the second is a J type thermocouple. The bimetallic switch is an auto-resetting circuit, and the J type thermocouple is a manual reset circuit.
