How a laboratory heating blanket works. What are they used for?

This equipment allows to apply heat uniformly, avoiding possible risks in chemistry and biology laboratories; a heating blanket comes equipped with a flexible and insulated heating device, which allows containers to be positioned directly on them, with the advantage that, those made of glass, risk breaking.

The use of heating blankets is one of the best known and safe methods for heating a reaction mixture, most of them have a hemispherical design and come in a variety of sizes to suit various shapes.

How a heating blanket works

  • It works with a distillation ball that is inserted into a woven basket. The liquid to be tempered or heated is placed inside the distillation balloon.ย 
  • Heating blankets take a little time to heat, so they can preheat during installation and also take a little time to cool.
  • These blankets produce their energy by turning voltage into heat.ย 
  • Check the heating blanket for damage such as scratches or perforations.
  • Make sure the voltage of the is the right one for the temperature controller.ย 
  • Install the heating blanket around the flask.
  • Connect the sensor according to the temperature controller instructions.
  • Check that the heating blanket is in contact with the surface you want to heat. It should be tightly attached to the glass bottle.
  • When you have already installed the blanket, connect it to the temperature controller.

Uses of heating blankets

  • Distillation, extraction, digestion, boiling and evaporation processes in laboratories.
  • Institutions of secondary or higher education.
  • Quality control analysis.
  • Industrial applications.
  • They prevent ice and snow accumulation on satellite dishes.
  • Apply heat evenly.
  • They can agitate the samples, whether or not they have adjustable temperature controller, provide limited heating time.
  • Distribute heat without creating condensed water and can be heated without flames and safely up to 100ยฐC.
