Choice of robust aluminium or chemically resistant ceramic tops
For use with SCT1 digital temperature controller
Advanced safety & communication features:
Flashing “Hot” warning light
Visible indication of temperature control
The SC162 and CC162 hotplate stirrers are specifically designed for use
with the Bibby Scientific SCT1 temperature controller.
Available in a choice of either robust aluminium or chemically resistant
ceramic top, each is equipped with a range of advanced safety and
communication features. To alert the user, a “Hot” warning light will
flash whenever the plate temperature is above 50°C, even when the
hotplate is turned off and connected to the mains. The cast aluminium
body is shaped for stability and helps deflect spills away from the
controls. An Independent safety circuit prevents overheating in the
event of control failure and internal electronic components are
protected against corrosion. Powerful magnets and motor give stirring
speed up to 1500rpm and volumes up to 15 litres.
The units automatically detect when the SCT1 temperature controller
is plugged in. Communication with the SCT1 temperature controller is
visible by an illuminated LED on the hotplate, providing reassurance
that the temperature of the sample is precisely controlled at all times.
Both CC162 and SC162 models can be used independently of the SCT1
temperature controller as a general purpose hotplate stirrer.
Model CC162 has a glass ceramic top, which has excellent chemical
and temperature resistance. The surface is easy to clean and the
thermal properties allow very high plate temperatures.
Model SC162 has a robust aluminium/silicon alloy top plate for good
heat transmission. A 700W element gives rapid heating and ensures
even temperature distribution across the whole of the plate.
CC162 - Stirrer/hotplate, ceramic plate, probe socket.
SC162 - Stirrer/hotplate, aluminium plate, probe socket.
SR1 - Retort rod, 600mm x 12mm diameter
