Platen Options for Many Applications

We offer several configurations and choices of platen control to meet the specific demands of your application.

Options for lab press heating platens from Carver.

Manual thermostat control - Basic heated platens are controlled by an integral sensor and individual manual thermostats.

Digital control - For more precise control, individual digital temperature controllers automatically control platen temperature from a separate control panel.

Manual cooling - Manual water cooling permits hand operated cooling of platens with monitoring by analog thermometers.

Note: All heaters are single phase unless otherwise noted.
