Stuart US150 Hotplate by Cole Parmer has plate dimensions of 150mm by 150mm. Heating is across the whole surface area. Heated power is 0.7kW. The plate is constructed from aluminium-silicon alloy, resistant to knocks and allows excellent conduction, producing temperature uniformity across the full surface area. The maximum temperature is 325°C. Designed with a small footprint taking up less desk and storage space.
To control the sample temperature rather than 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.
