Compact, space-saving design suits even cluttered laboratories
Powerful magnets provide strong stirring action
Be safe—flashing light warns when top plate is hot, and safety circuit protects against overheating
Colored LED indicator scale displays approximate plate temperature
These general purpose stirring hot plates are designed with safety as well as performance in mind. The compact shape takes up less bench space and makes storage easier. Powerful magnets and motor give stirring speeds up to 2000 rpm and is capable of mixing large volumes (up to 15 L*). All models include an integral fitting for attaching a support rod.
Advanced stirring hot plates (04805-56, -58, -64, -66. -68) feature either coated aluminum top plate for rapid heating and better temperature uniformity or chemically resistant glass ceramic that stays cool around the edges to help prevent burns. The "Hot" warning light will flash whenever the plate temperature is above 50°C even when the hotplate is turned off (lasts up to 30 minutes without power).
Added to the standard features is an innovative LED temperature indicator scale, which lights up in colored increments as the top plate heats up and shows you when the plate has reached its temperature set point. Use in conjunction with the digital temperature controller (04805-92) to accurately regulate sample temperature.
