Digital setting and control of both temperature and speed
Supplied complete with temperature probe for accurate control
of liquid temperature
Advanced safety features: Flashing "Hot" warning light and Independent safety circuit to protect against overheating
Choice of robust aluminium or chemically resistant ceramic
Sophisticated stirrer hotplates offering digital control of both
temperature and stirring speed. Comes complete with a detachable
PTFE coated probe which when immersed in a liquid sample can very
accurately control its temperature over a very
long period of time.
As the hotplate heats the sample to the set temperature, the advanced
microprocessor automatically measures the rate of temperature rise to
judge the capacity and nature of samples (e.g. oil or aqueous). It then
optimises the heating rate to minimise overshoot and time to set point.
An audible alert sounds when the set temperature has been reached.
Both set and actual temperature of the sample are displayed
simultaneously on a bright, easy to read vacuum fluorescent display.
For maximum security, an independent safety circuit automatically sets
to 20 degrees above the set temperature and shuts off the heater if the
temperature exceeds this. Therefore, the hotplate is safe to leave on
continuously, even unsupervised e.g. overnight. Internal electronic
components are protected against corrosion with a special coating.
Stirring action gives much better temperature uniformity within
samples because the liquid is mixed effectively. Powerful magnets and
motor give stirring speeds up to 1300 rpm and volumes up to 15

Stirring speed is set and displayed digitally so that exactly the same
speed can be used each time for reproducibility.
If the probe is unplugged, the temperature of the top plate can be set
on the display. This can be useful for applications where accurate
surface temperature is important such as warming microscope slides
and microarrays and specialist electronics.
There are two models to choose from:
Model CD162 has a glass ceramic top plate, which is chemically resistant and gives very fast heat up times.
Model SD162 has an aluminum / silicon alloy top plate which gives a
very even plate temperature and quick response to changing set

probe and 2 x 25mm PTFE coated stirrer bars.
