Shel Lab high-performance water baths are accurate, easy to use, safe and durable. The digital set / digital read P.I.D. temperature controller maximizes rapid heat-up without temperature overshoot. A microprocessor achieves precise temperature control regardless of how the unit is loaded. Calibration is performed directly from the front panel.
This durable and dependable water bath comes with a variety of safety and convenience features. It has a unique lid design that allows condensation to drain back into the tank without spilling onto the work area. We have also incorporated a gasket around the water bath tank to prevent water from dripping onto the controls. A warm air jacketed design radiates heat to the sides and bottom of the tank, eliminating hot spots. The unit has a non-contact, recessed heating element that will prevent burnouts if the water level is too low.
The water bath tank is constructed of stainless steel and does not have seams that could leak. The radius corners of the tank make cleaning easy. The unit's housings have a high quality textured powder coat finish. This electrostatically applied finish not only eliminates rust and chipping but is resistant to nicks, scratches and corrosives.

All specifications are determined by using average values on standard equipment at an ambient temperature of 25°C (77°F) and line voltages within +/-10% of unit type (115V/230V). Temperature specifications follow DIN 12880 methodology. Sheldon Manufacturing reserves the right to change specifications at any time.
Will the SWB15 Water Bath hold its maximum temperature (80°C) without the lid on?
Yes, however you will need to refill the bath frequently due to evaporation and you will also use a lot more electricity. It's always recommended to keep the lid on, if possible.863 Sheldon Manufacturing 2014-10-21
