Cascade CVO-10 Vacuum Oven



High production, large vacuum drying system for vacuum purging production quantities, the Cascade CVO-10 is our largest 10 cubic foot vacuum oven.

Model CVO-10 offers incredible temperature stability for vacuum drying and purging of pharmaceuticals, botanicals, and slurries – especially temperature sensitive material. This vacuum oven liberates solvents, water, and other unwanted compounds in large batch production environments. Note that this is a 220V vacuum oven.

Stand is included with both the Standalone and Pump Package.

Typically ships in 3-5 weeks

The Cascade Difference

Vacuum ovens have been around for decades. Basic vacuum ovens are mass-produced and sold by many large-scale laboratory equipment distributors. But there are key differences between and other inexpensive, often imported vacuum ovens.

Exceptional Temperature Control & Stability
The CVO-10 uses a unique control logic not found in most lab grade vacuum ovens. The temperature probe is INSIDE the oven, which minimizes temperature overshoot and delivers best-in-class temperature stability and uniformity particularly in the low temperature ranges. Accurate, stable temps throughout the CVO-10 eliminate hot and cold spots, making accurate use of every inch of shelf space.

Independent Overtemp Failsafe Protection
The CVO-10 is equipped with a heating cutoff system that will automatically stop power to the heaters when the oven shelf temps exceed 392°F or 200°C. This protection system will provide peace of mind for overnight processing or unattended vacuum bake outs.

Digital Vacuum Gauge
The digital vacuum gauge installed on the CVO-10 is selectable between inches of mercury (“Hg) or torr, mtorr.

Equipped for Inert Gas Backfill. Built-In Safety Relief
Introduce inert gasses such as nitrogen, argon, helium, etc. as part of your process via the ¼” rear vent barb. The maximum backfill pressure is 15PSI. In an overpressure situation, a simple, built-in safety relief allows gasses to escape via a spring loaded tempered window.

Flexible Pumping / Feedthru Connection Ports
For faster evaporation, purging or drying the CVO-10 includes MAX EVAP connection kit. The MAX EVAP connection kit secures to the oven’s rear 1” dia KF-25 port located on the back center of the chamber. The MAX EVAP connection never reduces flow by continuing with 1” diameter vacuum rated clear lines, a 1” dia KF-25 side mounted vacuum valve and KF-25 fittings and hardware. This KF-25 port can also be used to run temperature feedthrus, or monitoring sensors inside the vacuum chamber during processing.

Ergonomically Designed, Easy Quarter-Turn Valves
For anyone that has struggled with consistently turning the small, round, low-quality vacuum/vent valves, relief is in sight. You will love our large, quarter-turn vent valve. Your wrists will thank you!

Faster Venting With Large ½” Diameter Vent Lines
For large capacity production environments, time is money. The CVO-10 vacuum oven has larger than industry standard vent lines.  ½” diameter vent lines means operators spend less time venting the oven.

Rigorous Quality Assurance in an ISO Certified, USA Manufacturing Facility
We are proud of our ISO 9001 Certification/Accreditation. Each oven completes a series of quality assurance procedures before shipment.

  • Chambers are vacuum tested after welding for vacuum integrity
  • Electrical & mechanical safety is thoroughly tested in compliance with TUV requirements
  • Functional testing verifies user settable items consistent with most lab protocols/usage models
  • Temperature verification includes calibration & temp chamber uniformity following ASTM standards
  • Units are cleaned and packed in ISTA tested, certified packaging materials

ANSI Rated Tempered Glass + USA Made Steel
Our glass is NGI-USA Tempered and certified to ANSI Z97.1.2007  16CFR / 201 11. Our vacuum vessels are constructed with American made steel. We’ve tried lower cost, imported steel. But over time, vacuum chambers made of lesser quality/lower tolerance material cannot withstand the flex and pressure changes of vacuum pumping/venting/purging. This can deteriorate vacuum integrity and the oven will lost its ability to hold vacuum.

A Vacuum Cold Trap for High Production Environments

For high production environments, adding a vacuum cold trap keeps the vacuum pump running optimally, extends time between maintenance and allows reclamation of outgassed materials. MAXTRAP50 (-50C) or MAXTRAP105 (-105C) is ideally suited for trapping in these high production environments where typical lab grade traps, with small inlets and outlets can slow things down.
