MELTING POINT APPARATUS: Gallenkamp Type | Useful in scientific applications

$ 174.90 excl. GST

Melting Point Apparatus

This Melting Point Apparatus is a mains operated thermoelectric apparatus (often called a Vortex Shaker) that determines the melting point of a substance up to 300°C.
Comprises of an aluminium block which accepts up to three samples in 100 x 2 mm bore capillary tubes. A built-in lamp provides uniform and shadowless illumination of the sample tube.
Can be viewed through a fixed magnifier against either a dark or bright background altered by rotating a knob at the rear of the apparatus.

The block is heated by two elements; the temperature being accurately regulated by adjusting a built-in rotary rheostat as the melting point is approached.
Has two heating elements which are kept on to ensure uniform heating on both sides of the block.
Fitted in an enameled metal case size dimensions: 220 x 130 x 300 mm.

* Additional items required – refer to Capillary tubes MURG11931 and Thermometer -10 to 110 degC, 300ml, BN1424 .

(Wikipedia excerpt:.. “…Vortex shaker…Invented by Jack A. Kraft and Harold D. Kraft in 1962, a vortex shaker is a usually small device used to shake or mix small vials of liquid substance. Its most standout characteristic is that it works by the user putting a vial on the shaking platform and turning it on; thus, the vial is shaken along with the platform. A vortex shaker is very variable in terms of speed adjustment, for the shaking speed can be continuously changed while shaking by turning a switch…

A shaker is a piece of laboratory equipment used to mix, blend, or agitate substances in a tube or flask by shaking them. It is mainly used in the fields of chemistry and biology. A shaker contains an oscillating board that is used to place the flasks, beakers, or test tubes. Although the magnetic stirrer has lately come to replace the shaker, it is still the preferred choice of equipment when dealing with large volume substances or when simultaneous agitation is required….’)
