General-purpose water baths are a vital part of any laboratory, capable of performing a variety of applications.

These machines are made of a container to hold water and a digital or analog interface to control the temperature and maintain uniformity. It is typical for a water bath to reach temperatures of 99°C (210°F). 

However, some water baths utilize other mediums such as oil or sand when higher temperatures are required. These machines are ideal for industrial, clinical, biomedical, or pharmaceutical applications. This can include warming reagents, heating samples, and incubating cell cultures. 

It is possible for water baths to also perform more complicated tasks such as microbiological assays.

Water Bath Types & Price

Different types of water baths are used depending on the application. In general, there are three types of models, available in a variety of volume capacities and design configurations.


The combination of a container and an immersion circulator, these devices are capable of rapid heating and cooling by constantly circulating the flow of water either using a circulator or a system of pumps. A circulating bath, also referred to as an immersion circulator bath, is efficient at maintaining temperature stability, and covers a wide range of temperatures. These devices range in size and functionality. Some different types of circulators include:

  • Refrigerated Circulators
  • Refrigerated/Heated Circulator: Capable of both heating and cooling
  • Heated Circulators
  • Heated Immersion Circulators


Referred to as a general-purpose water bath, these water baths do not provide circulation. The use of convection heat controls the temperature of the apparatus. Non-circulating water baths are generally less uniform, but provide scientists with a basic and essential heating source for many applications.

These devices can be equipped with add-ons that provide circulation if needed. Similar to circulating baths, they come in a range of volume capacities capable of covering a wide range of production scales.



Similar to circulating water baths, these devices circulate water throughout the apparatus using agitation. A shaking water bath will agitate the contained water using horizontal and vertical motions so that heat is uniformly distributed.

This provides excellent temperature uniformity. These devices are ideal in biopharma, life sciences, and QA/QC applications. Their design allows for a suitable controlled atmosphere for any incubation needs.


Recirculating Chiller

Also referred to as a circulator or a chiller, these devices provide and maintain a constant and proper cooling temperature. This source of external cooling allows you to focus on cooling your application rather than your output, which in turn maintains the rate of efficiency your lab desires. These devices are a reliable cooling source for many laboratory, clinical, and industrial applications.

It is important to outfit your laboratory properly in order to avoid any procedural complications. General-purpose water baths may tend to be overlooked, but their importance cannot be overstated. 

Whatever the task, laboratory water baths are capable of meeting your demanding standards. Although acquiring laboratory equipment can be arduous, it doesn’t have to be! 

At Excedr, we offer a comprehensive leasing program complete with preventative maintenance and repair coverage so that you can say good-bye to any headaches attached to procuring new equipment. Contact us today to learn more.

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.


If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
