October 29, 2018 – Torrey Pines Scientific has announced its new line of multi-position analog stirring hot plates and stirrers featuring five or nine stirring positions.
The large 12-in (305 mm) square ceramic heater tops have a temperature range to 450°C.
The five-position stirring units can stir five 800ml beakers, and the nine-position units can stir nine 500ml beakers of aqueous solutions from 100 to 1500 rpm. Each stirring position is individually controlled so different vessels can be stirred at different speeds at the same time on one plate surface.
The ST15 Stirrer and the HS15 Stirring Hot Plate can stir five vessels, and the ST19 Stirrer and HS19 Stirring Hot Plate can stir nine vessels. The units measure 19 in (432 mm) deep by 12.5 in (318 mm) wide by 5.25 in (134 mm) tall. They can support more than 50 lbs (22.6 kg) on the plate surface. All controls are mounted well in forward of the heater surface to protect against accidental burns, and the units are designed to keep spills out of the chassis.
The units are available in 115 VAC/60Hz, 220 VAC/60Hz, and 230 VAC/50Hz. They have a main AC on/off switch and are fused for safety. They are supplied with user’s manual and detachable line cord for the country of use. All units are UL, CSA and CE or equivalent rated.
