Digital melting point apparatus
Digital selection & display of temperature
Choice of accuracy, 1 or 0.1 degree resolution
Easy to operate with plateau facility
Ideal for educational use
Supplied with calibration certificate
The SMP10 and SMP20 have been designed with safety and ease of operation in mind making it ideal for use in education. The temperature is selected, measured and displayed digitally making it accurate and negating the need for a thermometer. The SMP10 displays temperature to 1 degree resolution while the more advanced SMP20 has a 0.1 degree resolution as well as a variable ramp rate and hold key so that the exact melt temperature can be recorded.
Two samples can be tested simultaneously. They are viewed via a magnifying lens with clear observation aided by built in illumination. Extendible back feet allow the unit to be operated at the optimum viewing angle. Full access to the block aids cleaning. The simple to follow instructions are printed directly on the instrument in most European languages for ease of use.
To operate simply select a plateau temperature via the digital display and press "start". The unit quickly heats up and remains at the selected plateau temperature until the user is ready to start the test. Insert the sample tubes and press "start". The unit then heats at a fixed rate of 2°C per minute for the SMP10 and at a user selected rate of between 1 and 10°C per minute for the SMP20. When the sample is seen to melt, note the temperature on the display. Press "stop" to end heating and cool the block.
Supplied complete with calibration certificate showing individual serial number for traceability.
