Common in both industrial and academic laboratories, mixing is an important part of many tasks. Deciding which type of stirrer, magnetic or overhead, is best for you depends on the viscosity and scale of the substance you’re stirring. Overhead stirrers – the best fit for high-viscosity applications – are made up of a stirring fixture or panel, a controller, drive shaft, and a drive mechanism or motor. There are a variety of overhead stirrer configurations as well as analog and digital options. To choose the right overhead stirrer and accessories for your lab, it’s always a good idea to get help from your vendor.

|Eberbach Model 7225 Con-Torque Stirrer
Eberbach’s Model 7225 Con-Torque Stirrer is suitable for continuous duty stirring of highly viscous materials. A 1/9 hp motor and gear drive produces 196 oz-in of continuous torque which drives the hollow spindle through a speed range of 0 to 700 rpm.
|Jeio Tech MSP Digital Series
The MSP Series is designed for optimum usability, strongest efficiency in its class, and has an advanced safety system for protecting the user and laboratory environment. This digital overhead stirrer features smooth start up and speed-down functions which prevent spills and splashing and is controlled with a microprocessor.
|Syrris Atlas Potassium with Heidolph Stirrer and Adaptor
Providing an alternative to the Atlas Scorpion Overhead Stirrer, this adaptor enables additional user flexibility through the incorporation of third-party instrumentation. As a new addition to the Atlas range, the high torque stirrer adaptor enables effective mixing, homogenizing and re-circulating of high viscosity substances with torque feedback.
