Side-Only Element Design
The LB Series design was inspired, in part, by culinary bladesmiths who generally make long, thin blades blades. These bladesmiths needed to use the entire length of the chamber without overheating their blades at the back wall. We took a fresh look, got rid of the rear wall heating element, and nailed it.
The front to back temperature distribution in the LB is incredibly even. Positioning in the chamber has no effect and the entire length can be used.
The LB, with it's side-only element design, is the new standard!
Solid State Relay Standard Equipment
All LB models are standard equipped with our Quiet Drive Solid State relay.
A good portion of the LB's success is related to our solid state relay design. Solid state reacts much more quickly than standard mechanical relays which translates into very precise temperature control. Solid state does so without the given, eventual failure of a mechanical relay. We fully expect our solid state relay to last the life of the unit.
We have more to tell you about our solid state relay and our design choices. You'll see why it's an obvious choice to include it as standard equipment on the LB. Just click below.
Side Opening Door
Heat treating requires the removing of some very hot material from the chamber in order to quench. Everything in the chamber is hot, which includes the door. The doors on the LB's swing out and to the side, a full 180° if you need it. This puts the super-heated door well away from you as you concentrate on the work at hand.
The side opening door is an excellent design choice and makes all the difference.
Cool Touch Handle
The handle/latch on our swing out door is conveniently located at the front of the door, not hidden along the side. This spring loaded, phenolic handle is cool to the touch, is one-handed in design and serves as the door latch as well.
Many thanks to those who have offered feedback on our door handle/latch. We have updated the design to make centering, inserting and all-around operation cleaner and easier!
Multiple Control Options
Evenheat works closely with control manufacturers SDS Industries and Bartlett Instruments to bring you the best in performance, features and programming ease.
The LB Series models are available with the very popular TAP touchscreen control by SDS Industries as well as the Rampmaster 3 by Bartlett Instrument. The LB's are not available with the Set-Pro control as the Set-Pro is not capable of offering precise solid state relay control.

Loud Alarm Output Jack
LB models are standard equipped with a Loud Alarm Output Jack for use with our Loud Alarm Option.
All of our controls feature an audible alarm. These alarms let you know when you've reached temperature, and more importantly, when it's time to quench. These alarms however, aren't really loud enough to break through the noise found in a working shop. In response, we've included an alarm output jack on the bottom of the control enclosure that allows you to plug in our Loud Alarm (sold separately). Just plug it in and enjoy 80db of irritating alarm bliss.

Relay Access Port
All LB models incorporate our Relay Access Port for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.
All of our solid state designs incorporate a mechanical safety relay. This safety relay cycles one time during use and never when current is flowing. Because of this we expect it to last the life of the unit. In the event that it does fail, this relay port will come in handy.
Simply remove the access plate to gain access to the relay. There's no need to remove the control panel and dig into the internal wiring. It's absolutely simple and effective and all it takes is a screwdriver!
