Lab incubators
    #3365634 - 11/15/04 08:16 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Anyone have an actual lab incubator they use for their projects? I was lucky enough to acquire such a device and lack a thermometer (if I had one, it would go in the top with a rubber grommet to hold it).

The digital reads 86, but from what I have been noticing, there seems to be some inconistencies with the temps depending on where the probe is.

I plan on getting an actual OEM thermometer, but curious if this has been experienced before.

Cheers

you can get a good lab grade thermometer anywhere you can buy darkroom supplies,photographers use chemicals at specific temperatures.
a small fan will even out the temperature in the incubator but I don't use one.
stuff I want to keep cooler goes on the bottom
stuff I want a little warmer stays near the top.
you will get different temps if the probe touches the case or an object,make sure it hangs in the air

Can't see the thumbs for your pics on that site, man but would like to :smile:

Yeah, the probe has been hung at various spots in the inc., probe never touching...

I think there are a few hot spots or something.

yes I use a lab incubator
once a thermal mass is in there youll notice temps even out a bit more
I had to replace the controller though
went with an omega controller using a J type thermocouple

I have a Blue M and find it heats rather efficiently at least the myc shows me it's happy on either self :wink: I also use a tray in the bottom which aids in the convectional flow I've found.

I'm doing stuff on the cheap so no shelves.
I have an old fridge and was considering a lightbuld on a thermostat but that's a little too big for me.
