DescriptionThe MPS11 has been designed with both safety and ease of operation in mind, making it ideal for use in education. Supplied with a safe, spirit filled mercury free thermometer, the low toxic blue spirit will not pose a health hazard in the event of a breakage. Easy to follow instructions are printed directly on to the apparatus and are available in most European languages. With a manually adjustable heating rate, the MPS11 will rapidly heat samples up to 20°C (68°F) per minute to the melt temperature and up to the maximum temperature of 250°C (482°F). Accurate readings to within 1°C (34°F) of the melt temperature can be achieved by using a slower heating rate of between 1 and 10°C (50°F) per minute. Up to 3 samples can be viewed and tested at any one time. Samples are illuminated by a bright white LED and viewed via a magnifying lens. The magnifying lens can be detached for cleaning using the simple to follow instructions printed on to the instrument.
