The Benefits of Excedr’s Lab Oven & Furnace Leasing Program:
- Eliminates the upfront cost of purchasing equipment by spreading its cost over time
- Minimizes equipment downtime with included complete repair coverage and preventive maintenance
- Takes advantage of potentially 100% tax deductible* payments, providing you significant cash-savings
- Expedites the administrative work needed for instrument procurement and logistics
- Conserves working capital, enabling you to reinvest in your core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)
- Accommodates all manufacturer and model preferences
*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.
Laboratory ovens can reach temperatures of 300°C or more and provide precise temperature uniformity and control for laboratories performing baking, curing, annealing, drying, vacuum filtration, and decontamination tasks.
They are better suited for laboratory and industrial uses than their conventional counterparts by design. Industries that benefit from laboratory ovens include biotech, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and materials manufacturing.
Efficient on both large and small scales, lab ovens are standard in most clinical, forensic, biological, and research laboratories. Furthermore, stainless steel cleanroom ovens are available with HEPA filtration that helps meet ISO 5 (Class 100) compliance requirements and conditions.
Laboratory oven & furnace functions are essential in the processes of:
- Drying: a requisite for many environmental, biological, and clinical labs. Drying removes moisture and lowers the boiling point of water, allowing a sample to dry at a lower temperature.
- Baking: used to heat a material/sample without any de-humidification, preserving its humidity and water content.
- Curing: curing or hardening a substance’s chemical composition through the combination of drying and baking.
- Annealing: heating materials and letting them cool to change their physical attributes, such as reducing hardness and increasing flexibility, making things like glass and steel more ductile.
- Sterilizing: using the heat inside the chamber sterilizes medical equipment and glassware used for research purposes. Ovens reach and maintain uniform temperatures of 300°C or more, sterilizing equipment for 45 minutes or more, after which equipment is allowed to cool gradually, preventing any chance of breaking or cracking.
Lab ovens are capable of many other industrial tasks and come with a range of specifications to fit any lab’s needs. Occasionally, multiple ovens may be required to complete a task due to unique end results and tailoring for specific applications. However, models are available that include the ability to switch between applications.
Convection Methods & Their Applications
Laboratory ovens use different types of convention, each of which has various benefits or drawbacks. In addition to convection type, unit size can range from compact benchtop to freestanding. Internal oven chamber capacity also varies from 16 liters (0.6 cubic feet (cu ft)) to 117 liters (4.2 cu ft) or more.
Temperature range is another important specification, as some ovens can operate at a maximum temperature of 300°C or above; an important distinction if specialized tasks are being performed.
Many units are equipped with microprocessor-based monitor and control systems—rather than conventional thermostats—featuring LED displays that show actual and preset chamber temperatures, as well as a single set point control that ensures accurate temperature regulation.
Furthermore, modern laboratory ovens typically feature overtemperature protection, protecting your materials from being exposed to internal temperatures higher than you’d like.
The following list includes some of the most common convection methods, oven types, and more.

We Offer Laboratory Oven Leases to Fit Every Need
When baking or curing anything in the lab, temperature stability is necessary. Laboratory ovens offer precise temperature control and uniformity, ensuring high-quality results. While this lab equipment is essential wherever drying, curing, sterilizing, and annealing are required, purchasing one might not be the optimal procurement method.
Rather than buy an oven outright, consider bundling it with the other necessary and basic lab equipment you need to outfit or expand your laboratory.
If you’re interested in managing cash flow more easily, lease your lab oven through Excedr. Our lab equipment lease program is designed to help laboratories access the equipment they need while avoiding significant upfront costs. Additionally, you can use the money you save through our payment plan for reinvesting in other core business areas.
In addition to laboratory ovens, we offer a wide range of other general laboratory equipment, including lab incubators, fume hoods, biological safety cabinets, and laboratory dishwashers, to name a few.
Request a lease estimate and let us know what you’re interested in leasing. We can talk about your needs in further detail. Not sure if leasing is right for you, but want to learn more about our program? Feel free to get in touch with us today, and we can walk you through how our program works.
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.
