Melt Point Apparatus

Product Code: PS-3239


Melting point range is an important factor for determining the identity and purity of compounds, which is the primary focus of many college synthetic chemistry labs. The built-in magnifying eyepiece allows students to observe the melting process individually. You can add a USB camera (sold separately) to record the process for real time viewing on a larger screen or replay for a more confident determination. The variable ramp rates allow you to quickly raise the sample temperature near melting (to preserve lab time) before slowing the rate down again, and the hold temp command ensures all substances reach a uniform temperature without surpassing the melting event. Check the current temperature easily with the built-in temperature sensor, and use the cooling fan between measurements to quickly restore the heating block to room temperature.
