Mantles can be used in a wide range of ambient temperatures, from about 45 to 100 °F, and relative humidity up to 80%.
A 4-foot long grounded cord is included. Maximum operating temperature is 400 °C. The units are not waterproof, and are rated as IP code 10 equipment.
Each unit is supplied with a magnetic stir bar. Mantles with stirrer feature polyurethane coated aluminum exteriors and a high quality knitted mantle with glass fiber underlay for uniform distribution of heat.
Power (from 0 to 100%) and stir speed (50 to 750 rpm) are controlled from 2 separate knobs that are built-into the unit. No need for a separate external control unit. Mantles are designed to securely hold flasks so that the top half of the flask is easily visible during operation. Elements can be replaced easily. An outlet tube is built-in for draining any spilled liquids. A 4-foot long grounded cord is included. Each unit features a fuse that can be easily replaced.
Units are designed for long-term use. Care should be taken to avoid chemical spillage, overheating, overloading, and general misuse to maximize service life. Please refer to the user manual for more information.
