Hotplates, Stirrers & Hotplate Stirrers
Glazed with BioCote® for antimicrobial protection
The Cole-Parmer® Stuart™ range includes dedicated hotplates, stirrers, and combination hotplate stirrer models, which are available in a choice of coated metal or ceramic tops. The square design of the hotplate allows flexibility of vessel sizes and combinations; e.g. four 250 mL beakers can easily fit on the hotplate surface at the same time.
Save Space - compact, stackable design for reduced benchtop and storage footprint
Safe - hot warning light remains on even when unplugged
Robust - built with a tough aluminum casing for longevity
Convenient - controller retort stand easily nests underneath the unit
Choice of Surfaces
Hotplates and hotplate stirrers are available in glass-ceramic or coated metal tops; the square-shaped surfaces allow more flexibility in vessel sizes and combinations.
Glass-ceramic surface provides excellent chemical resistance; easy to clean with thermal properties that allow very high plate temperatures. The white surface ensures good visibility of any changes in sample color, for example during titration reactions.
Ceramic-coated aluminum/silicon alloy offers robustness. The thin ceramic coating provides added chemical resistance, while the 700W element allows rapid heating to the desired temperature.
Strong stainless steel (US151 only) surface aids accurate stirring. Unlike aluminum, it
does not produce eddy currents and ensures robust coupling and powerful stirring action.
