Ideal for day-to-day use by scientific professionals and students, the Stuart stirring hot plates offer precise temperature control and stirring speed of your samples. Powerful magnets provide stirring speeds of up to 1400rpm and the ability to mix large volumes up to 15L. The simple body design allows spillages to be easily deflected from the user. Front control panel resists spills and the glass is chemically toughened for extra resilience. When plate temperature rises above 50°C, a hot warning light flashes even if the unit is turned off or unplugged. All units feature an integral fixing point for a retort rod and are BioCote antimicrobial protected. 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 analogue interface model features two LED arrays for temperature and stirring speed. The surface temperature and speed ranges are indicated by progressively illuminating LED lights.
