Instructions for the use of a Hot Plate Stirrer Heater:
  • Bring the heat up slowly, until the desired temperature is reached. The top plate will retain heat for a time even after the heater control is turned off. Remove the sample after use to avoid it boiling over.
  • Only non-ferrous metals or borosilicate glass  should be used with this unit. Failure to use these can result in the failure of the unit. Never try to heat plastic on this unit!
  • Stirrer: Always start to stir from the off position. Failure to do so may cause the stir bar to jump and break the container. Make sure to match the size of your stir bar to the size of the container. 2" (50mm) is the maximum size stir bar for this size stirrer.
  • Thermometer: Place the connecting rod into the holder at the back of the unit. The thermometer should be placed halfway into the solution that is being stirred. For the best results, make sure that it it outside of the vortex that the stirrer produces.
  • pH Probe: For pH measurements, stir the solution slowly and position the pH probe toward the side of the container, approximately 1" off of the bottom of the container.

WARNING! This unit is designed for routine, intermittent laboratory use. This unit should not be used with flammable or highly corrosive chemicals. Always observe safe and prudent laboratory practices when operating this, and any other equipment.
