VWR® Basic Melting Point Apparatus

Supplier: VWR International
The VWR® Basic Melting Point Apparatus is primarily used in determining the purity of a sample and is optimized to quickly and efficiently heat up to 3 samples at one time.

  • LCD screen displays temperature, date, and time
  • Audible alarm when set temperature is reached
  • Large, clear viewing window with 8x magnification and white LED to illuminate samples
  • Five-Year Warranty
  • Available with a NIST Traceable, ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Calibration Certificate from Troemner

Microprocessor controlled units maintain precise temperature control from ambient +5°C to 400°C

Audible alarm will sound when the set temperature is reached. Safety features include an indefinite heating time out. If ramping phase is not initiated within 30 minutes of reaching the set temperature, the unit returns to standby mode and the heater turns off to prevent indefinite heating. To prevent overheating, there is a maximum temperature timeout. After 30 minutes at the maximum temperature, the unit reverts back to the set temperature to prevent overheating.

Unit includes integral holder for capillary tubes.

Easy-to-use controls allow temperature adjustments in 1°C increments. Touch pad controls with LCD display for temperature, date, and time allow operator to view settings efficiently while monitoring samples through the viewing window. Fixed ramp rate from set temperature of 2°C per minute. Provides repeatable and accurate results every time and is easily visible across lab benches. LED lamp illuminates the oven while the oven window provides 8x magnification of samples at an ergonomic viewing angle.

Certifications: TUV Listed RoHS Compliant.

Ordering information: All units include a 234cm (92") detachable, three-wire cord and plug. Calibrated Shakers include a Troemner ISO/IEC Accredited Calibration Certificate traceable to NIST. The ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Calibration Certificate includes multiple data points within the temperature and time function with the associated uncertainties. Troemner is accredited by NVLAP under Laboratory Code 105013-0 to perform ISO/IEC 17025 calibrations. All units include a starter pack of 100 capillary tubes. Tubes are closed on one end.
