The Stuart CD162 Stirring Hotplate by Cole Parmer has plate dimensions of 160mm by 160mm. Heated area is 120mm by 120mm. Power is 0.5kW. A PTFE coated probe is supplied for insertion into the liquid to control sample temperature to within ±0.5°C accurately. A vacuum fluorescent display shows the actual sample temperature and set temperature. By detaching the probe, the surface plate temperature is displayed useful for warming microscope slides or microarrays and specialist electronics.
Driven by powerful magnets and a motor, stirring speed is adjustable between 200 to 1300 rpm, mixing volumes up to fifteen litres for single stirring operation only. The surface plate is made from chemically resistant easy clean, rapid heating Glass Ceramic; maximum temperature is 450C. The plate edges stay cool to help avoid accidental burns. Further safety features include a flashing warning light when the temperature climbs above 50°C. Over-temperature protection kicks in when the temperature rises 20ºC above the set temperature, automatically shutting down the heating, for unsupervised operation. Supplied in corrosion-resistant coating for internal electronics protection.
The advanced microprocessor determines capacity and sample composition s (e.g. oil or aqueous) as the hotplate heats the sample to the set temperature. Optimisation of the heating rate automatically occurs minimising overheating and set point time. An audible alert signifies set temperature attainment. As the liquid is mixed well by stirring excellent temperature uniformity is achieved when heating.
Temperature and Stirring speed control are digitally operated by the push button dial setting knobs at the front of the stirrer hotplate. Accurate repeatability is possible when dealing with work involving multiple samples. Supplied complete PTFE probe and fitting for retort rod, 2 x 25mm PTFE coated stir bars and power cord.
