Vacuum ovens are very versatile pieces of equipment with applications in laboratory research, engineering, and industry. Vacuum oven is generally used for drying of substances which are hygroscopic and heat sensitive and is based on the principle of creating a vacuum to decrease the chamber pressure below the vapour pressure of the water causing it to boil. It can be filled with inert gases, especially for rapid drying of some compound material. The low pressure environment also minimizes oxidation during drying. The materials to be dried are kept on trays and pressure is reduced by means of vacuum pump.
