Laboratory Hot Plates - areas of application
A hot plate is an elementary piece of laboratory equipment that is mainly used in chemistry and biology for heating at precise temperatures. As laboratory hot plates, our electric hot plates are used in all research and industrial laboratories, at university institutes and in production plants. Hot plates are professional devices used tempering technology for heating a wide variety of laboratory vessels such as heating baths, Erlenmeyer flasks, beakers, distillation or round flasks. A simple hot plate with a heating surface resembles a conventional cooker hot plate with a round heating surface. Laboratory hot plates with an additional magnetic stirrer, also known as a heating stirrers, allow the use of magnetic stirring rods for circulating the heated tempering fluid and for better heat distribution. Our laboratory hot plates by leading manufacturers such as IKA, Harry Gestigkeit or Ingenieurbüro CAT, M. Zipperer GmbH are robust laboratory tempering devices made of high-quality materials that are resistant to chemicals and temperature fluctuations and have been developed for reliable continuous operation in laboratories of all kinds.
Lab Hot-Plates - functions
Hot-Plates assume many functions and tasks in the laboratory depending on the area of application, equipment used, usage volume, material, temperature and other devices. In a laboratory an electric hot plate is employed for the precise heating and tempering of the most varied of vessels. For this, many hot plates have special heating functions which make it possible to precisely measure and regulate the temperature. Even temperature distribution over the entire heating surface and in the vessels is essentially responsible for precise tempering. A contact thermometer can be attached for precise temperature monitoring via an add-on device on the hot plate or built-in heat sensors and regulators can assume this function. Temperature regulation takes place manually by means of heat settings, continuously and/or through thermostatic regulation by way of an electronic temperature regulator incorporated into the heating device or located externally. Laboratory hot plates provide heating outputs of 450 - 5700 Watts depending on the required temperature. Many electric hot plates have microprocessor-controlled digital temperature regulators with program functions such as determining the tempering time, target temperature, heating intervals, cooling or heating rate.
Hot-Plates for laboratory - temperature & materials
The offered hot plates and their stands are optionally available in aluminium, cast iron, ceramic glass, eloxal, ceran, titanium or V2A. These materials provide the best resistance to chemicals, acids and temperature changes. Depending on the model, laboratory hot plates are suitable for continuous operation at maximum temperatures of 99.9°C to 600°C.
