I am doing some research on vacuum oven, but I cannot find out any website/book to tell me the theory. To my knowledge, it works better than regular oven. However, I have no idea why it is. Please help
Vacuum Ovens works better than regular ovens because:
- It removes the source of contamination. For example, heating metals to high temperature causes rapid oxidation in regular ovens which is undesirable.
- It reduces the heat loss which is caused by convection.
- It allows quick cooling of the product as there are no air to hold heat around product.
- It allows precise control of uniform temperature in a certain area of oven. There's no air to screw it up.
