Stuart SMP30 by Cole Parmer

Load three samples simultaneously into the heating block of the SMP30 and heat up to 400°C. A plateau facility is included with a variable ramp rate between 0.5 and 10°C in 0.1°C increments. The tubes are illuminated with bright white LED’s to give the most transparent view of the samples during the melt. The block has been designed for easy access for cleaning; the head’s front is fully removable to allow full access to the micro furnace.

The SMP30 has a large clear, backlit alphanumeric LCD running the menu system, which guides you through the melting process with comprehensive directions. Record up to 8 time-stamped events in memory for each of the three sample tubes.

A head-up display shows a floating image of the block temperature, visible through the eyepiece in front of the tubes,  eliminating the user’s need to keep switching their gaze between the tubes and the temperature display.

For the most comfortable viewing angle, the SMP30 features a two-stage head adjustment. The head can then be stored safely back within the body of the unit for storage. The unit’s design has many other useful features, such as slots for storing pre-prepared samples and a storage draw to hold a container of capillary tubes.

An accessory printer is available separately to produce a written record of the melt, and all units are supplied with a calibration certificate showing individual serial numbers for traceability.

Melting tubes are Soda glass, broken into two and sealed with a Bunsen flame, dimensions: length 100mm, overall diameter 1.9mm, inner diameter 1.3mm, wall thickness 0.3mm.
