Stuart UC150 Hotplate by Cole Parmer has plate dimensions of 150mm by 150mm. Heated area is 120mm by 120mm. Heated power is 0.5kW. The plate is constructed from chemically resistant, easy clean Glass Ceramic, providing rapid heating up to a maximum up to 450°C. The ceramic composition allows the temperature to stay cool around the edges preventing accidental burns. Designed to be compact using minimal desk space and easy to store.
To regulate sample temperature as opposed to plate temperature, an optional digital contact thermometer is available. For operator safety, once the temperature exceeds 50°C a flashing light provides warning of the surface temperature. The light will continue to display until the temperature reduces, even if the hotplate is switched off, or removed from the mains.
Temperature control is analogue operated by the dial at the front of the hotplate. The LED temperature indicator scale illuminates as the surface plate heats up to show when the plate has reached the setpoint, more precise than an arbitrary 1 to 10 scale—supplied complete with power cord.
This model is part of Undergrad Advanced Analog Hot Plate range.
