CARLSBAD, CA — Torrey Pines Scientific, Inc announces its new line of corrosion-resistant multi-position stirring analog hot plates and stirrers featuring five or nine stirring positions making them ideal for acid digestions and working with most any corrosive solutions.
The large 12 inch (305 mm) square ceramic heater tops have a temperature range to 450°C. A purge port on the rear of the units is provided for purging with a positive pressure of any inert gas. Most chassis openings have been closed. This keeps corrosive vapors from getting inside the units and protects the electronics and stirrer motors.
The five-position stirring units can stir 5–800ml beakers, and the nine-position units can stir 9–500ml beakers of corrosive aqueous solutions from 100 to 1,500 rpm. Each stirring position is individually controlled.
The units measure 19 inches (432 mm) deep by 12.5 inches (318 mm) wide by 5.25 inches (134 mm) tall. They can support more than 50 pounds (22.6kg) on the plate surface. All controls are mounted well in front 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 115VAC/60Hz, 220VAC/60Hz, and 230VAC/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.
