Wet Laboratory Heating

BriskHeat flexible heating tapes, heating mantles, beaker heaters, cloth heating jackets, and temperature controls.



Wet laboratories are laboratories where chemicals, drugs, and other material or biological matter are handled in liquid or volatile phases. Examples include chemistry, biology, and research labs. There are several applications in this environment where it is necessary that the experimental conditions have elevated temperatures. Temperatures range from just over ambient to above 400°C (750°F) for the purposes of synthetic reactions, removal of moisture to eliminate it as a variable, sampling, preparation, detection, monitoring of liquids/solids/gases, and sterilization of laboratory equipment


XtremeFLEX® Flexible Heating Tapes and Cords are versatile, easy-to-use, and an economical choice for wet laboratories. The durability and flexibility of XtremeFLEX® heating tapes and cords allow them to twist, turn, bend, and wrap around many objects; even those with diameters as small as a pencil. In addition, they have high temperature capabilities up to 760°C (1400°F) and watt densities up to 13.1 W/in² (0.020 W/mm²). These features allow them to heat-up very quickly and maintain high operating temperatures. A wide range of standard sizes are available to fit most application needs, with custom sizes available upon request. To improve energy-efficiency, it is recommended that heating tapes are used in conjunction with insulation.

Custom Cloth Heating Jackets are a preferred option for applications that require exceptional accuracy and heightened functionality. These “all-inclusive” heaters are easy to install and remove and have tight temperature tolerances, built-in temperature sensors, and insulation. Each heater is custom made to fit perfectly around the object being heated and meet the exact requirements of the application.

Heating Mantles (HM) offer uniform heat distribution for round bottom flasks. These soft-sided heaters are a safe alternative to Bunsen burners. They are made to fit precisely around the flask and provide high temperature capabilities up to 482°C (900°F). Standard sizes of heating mantles range from 50ml to 12000ml. There are self-standing models and models designed for use with a basket ring stand. Heating mantles can also be custom designed to fit any shape and size.

Silicone Rubber Beaker Heaters (GBH) are moisture and chemical resistant heaters that fit precisely around Griffin and standard beakers. They are capable of providing an even distribution of heat around the surface of the beaker. Silicone beaker heaters can safely reach temperatures up to 232°C (450°F). Standard sizes range from 250ml to 1000ml. Custom sizes are available upon request.

Temperature controllers are necessary to regulate any heater’s performance. Pair any of these heaters with one of the many BriskHeat bench top temperature controllers for a complete system. An economical and popular choice for wet lab applications is the SDC digital on/off temperature controller. This temperature controller features simple on/off temperature control, digital display, and factory-installed J-type or K-type thermocouple sensor. It has a range up to 700°C (999°F) with accuracy of +/- 1%. For higher temperature capabilities or when more precise temperature control is needed , we recommend our X2 digital PID bench top controller. It has an operating range up to 760°C (1400°F) with accuracy of +/- 0.5%. BriskHeat also offers custom-designed temperature controllers to fit unique application requirements.
