Stuart SMP50 Automatic Melting Point Apparatus by Cole Parmer is the advanced model in the range, with 400°C maximum temperature capability, replacing the SMP40.
The melting process can take place without operator supervision. A high-resolution digital camera records the whole process, temperature stamping the actual melting point. 8GB allows recording of 300 melts inclusive of videos, these can be downloaded along with reports to a USB flash drive or simply printed using the optional printer. On reviewing videos, the user can input measurement tags, e.g. meniscus point. Alternatively, the whole process can be watched live on the 7″ (17.8 cm) touch-screen display, which drives all operation.
Use is initiative as the SMP 50 runs via an Android operating system. The unit can be programmed, user permissions set, results can be viewed and saved. Built-in melt algorithm pinpoints tiny sample changes which give the exact melting point; three samples can be tested simultaneously. A rapid ramp mode scans the full range of temperatures to determine the melting point. Suitable for use pharmaceutical, raw material, and quality control processes.
Included is a draw for storing unused capillaries and glass cutter for use with capillaries closed at both ends or to cut tubes in half, a clean-cut insures tubes are safe to handle. Away from the heat source room is provided to accommodate three prepared sample tubes.
In compliance with US Pharmacopeia (USP) and GLP stipulations. Supplied with calibration certificate traceable to instrument serial number and glass capillaries and power cord.
