Glas-Col offers two types of StirMantles: Electromagnetic (50 to 750 rpm) and Motor Driven (100 to 1850 rpm). The maximum rpms available for each type depends on the viscosity of the solution being heated. Electromagnetic StirMantles are typically used with aqueous solutions like water, while the Motor Driven units use a powerful magnet for higher viscous solution like oils. StirMantles withstands 400°C internal operating temperature. EMS series include the heating mantle, speed control and stir-bar. TEM series only includes the heating mantle and allows the customer in select different speed control options or combined speed/temperature packages like the 104A HS112.
WARNING: chemical spillage, overheating, overloading, and general misuse will greatly reduce service life!
Note: The temperature probe this mantle comes with can only be used with a thermowell. If you are using it with BVV™ glassware you will need to add SKU: TK1/4-12 or TK1/4-18 depending on what mantle size is selected.
