IKA PLATE(RCT Digital)-Hot Plate, 20 l, 50 -1,500 rpm, up to 310 °C


QTY - +

Description Item

The IKA Plate (RCT digital) has a round top made of aluminum alloy. It stirs volumes of up to 20l (H2o) and runs at speeds ranging from 50-1500rpm.

Strongly standing by its product and technology, IKA is offering a lifetime warranty on the magnetic stirrer – unparalleled in the industry; scientists can focus on their experiments with a reliable stir plate.

Some of the features are: IKA emphasizes ease-of-use by design simplicity: reduced forms and operating elements meet the modernity of smartphones: IKA not only focuses on hardened glass because of visibility, chemical resistance and safety, it also optically changes the game of a magnetic stirrer with a glass surface. The IKA Plate (RCT digital) improves over time with regular firmware updates. Using Alnico magnetic technology, the IKA Plate (RCT digital) achieves excellent temperature stability and high residual induction. It also provides for maximum vortex. The integrated timer and counter function supports the control of kinetics and sensitive reactions; the IKA SmartTemp® function protects users intelligently and predictably.
