NEW Stuart Hotplate Stirrers!!

Thursday 9th February, 2012

NEW Stuart Hotplate Stirrers!!

The market leading range of Stuart hotplate/stirrers has been redesigned.

The new Undergrad range is stylish and economical and offers a number of novel features.  They are of course available at very reasonable prices.

• LED surface temperature indicator

• Mains independant hot warning light

• Choice of surface, chemically resistant ceramic or robust ceramic coated metal

• Compatible with SCT1 temperature controller

• Recess for retort stand or fitting for retort rod

• Space saving design


The Undergrad units feature a unique LED temperature indicator which surrounds the heater control knob and progressively illuminates to indicate the actual surface temperature. This not only provides a bright, obvious indication that the unit is hot, which can be seen from across the room, but also clearly differentiates the heat and stir controls.

The heating units all feature a hot warning light that is mains independent, it will continue to flash while the surface temperature is above 50oC, even once the unit is switched off and unplugged from the mains. These units are also compatible with the existing Stuart SCT1 temperature controller, once connected the SCT1 will accurately control the sample temperature up to 200oC.

The chassis of the units have been designed so they can be stored on their side, taking up less space and all models feature a recess underneath that allows a retort stand to slide underneath, saving valuable time where numerous units need to be set up, for example in an educational environment. However there is also an integral fitting for a retort rod.

The new range is available with a choice of surfaces, either ceramic for high temperatures and chemical resistance or ceramic coated metal for robustness and excellent conductivity.


Current SB and CB models will still be available until stocks run out and then the new models will superceded them.  Alternatively new stock is available to order now.  The table below shows how the old models will be replaced.
