Choice of top plate:
- Robust coated aluminium
- Chemically resistant ceramic
Flashing "Hot" warning light, mains independent
Accurate temperature control with LED setting scale
Compact space saving design

Stylish and economical general purpose hotplate designed with safety as well as performance in mind. The compact shape takes up less bench space and makes storage easier. The hotplate has microprocessor control and an innovative LED based true °C temperature setting system rather than simply a 1 to 10 arbitrary scale. The unit can also be used in conjunction with the SCT1 digital temperature controller to accurately control sample temperature rather than plate temperature.
The "Hot" warning light will flash whenever the plate temperature is above 50°C even when the hotplate is turned off and unplugged from the mains.

Model UC150 has a glass ceramic top which has excellent chemical resistance. The surface is easy to clean and allows high plate temperatures for faster heating.

Model US150 has a robust aluminium/silicon alloy top plate for excellent heat transmission. The top plate has a thin ceramic coating for added chemical resistance. A 700W element gives rapid heating and ensures even temperature distribution across the whole surface of the plate.

Both models have an integral fitting for a retort rod and the bottom is shaped to allow a retort base to slide underneath the unit if required so saving further bench space.
