The oven is equipment that serves to heat or dry.  Usually used to dry laboratory glassware, chemical substances and organic solvents.  It can also be used to measure water content.  The lab oven Singapore temperature is lower than the furnace temperature, which is around 105ºC.  Not all glassware can be dried in the oven, only glassware with certain specifications can be dried, namely glassware with low accuracy.  Meanwhile, glassware with high precision cannot be oven-dried.  If the glass utensil with high accuracy is inserted into the oven, then the glass utensil will expand and result in less accurate accuracy.  Usually, a desiccator is used to dry it.
