Ideal for day-to-day use by scientific professionals and students, the Stuart hot plates offer precise temperature control of your samples. The simple body design features a spill-resistant front control panel with a chemically toughened glass for extra resilience. When the plate temperature rises above 50°C, a hot warning light flashes even if the unit is turned off and unplugged. All units feature an integral fixing point for a retort rod and BioCote antimicrobial protection. The glass ceramic plate is chemical resistant, easy to clean, and allows for very high plate temperatures; plus the white surface ensures good visibility of colour changes. The ceramic-coated aluminium plate offers excellent heat transmission, rapid heating with a 700-watt element, even temperature distribution, and is chemical resistant. The digital interface model features a digital temperature setting. The set and actual temperature is shown on the seven-segment digital display.
