Easy to operate - ideal for educational use and supplied with safe spirit filled thermometer

This system has new safety features including a supply with a safe, spirit filled mercury free thermometer. The low toxic blue spirit will not pose a health hazard in the event of a breakage. Easy to follow instructions are printed directly on to the apparatus.

With a manually adjustable heating rate, the SMP11 will rapidly heat samples up to 20°C per minute to the melt temperature and up to the maximum temperature of 250°C. Accurate readings to within 1°C of the melt temperature can be achieved by using a slower heating rate of between 1 and 10°C per minute.

Up to three samples can be viewed and tested. Samples are illuminated by a bright white LED and viewed via a magnifying lens. The magnifying lens can be detached for cleaning.
