Stuart SMP20 Digital Melting Point Apparatus by Cole Parmer is suited to education or general laboratory applications. The maximum temperature is 300°C. To operate set the desired plateau temperature using the three digits LED digital display and press start, the SMP10 will heat and remain at the set temperature. When the operator is ready to conduct the test, insert the tube samples and press start, the temperature can be user set to climb between 1 and 10°C per minute. Once the sample is seen to melt, press the hold key and record the temperature, allow sufficient sample cooling time. It is possible to run two tests simultaneously. Multi-language instructions for operation are printed on the front of the instrument.
To aid observation of the melting point, the back feet can be raised, allowing the optimum viewing angle. A magnifying lens and illumination enable a clear vision of tests.
- Digital setting and temperature measurement provides repeatability
- Productivity test more than one sample
- Plateau can be heating up while executing other tasks
- Designed for optimum safety
- Digital Temperature displayed to 0.1°C resolution
- All units come with a with calibration certificate referencing serial number for traceability.
Sample tubes are made from Soda glass; these can be easily be broken into two and sealed with a Bunsen flame; each pack has 100 tubes and includes a tube holder. Melting point tube dimensions: length 100mm, overall diameter 1.9mm, inner diameter 1.3mm, wall thickness 0.3mm.
