Heat-On makes your chemistry safer, cleaner and faster
Replace messy oil baths, heating mantles and avoid spills.
Heat-On accepts vials, tubes and flasks from 10 ml to 5 litres. Fits on all leading hotplate brands with a 145mm Ø top plate; optional adapter plate for 135mm Ø top plates.
- Unique well design eliminates cracking of flasks.
Blocks feature two probe holes for added convenience. Optional and detachable lifting handles. Optional PTFE Safety Covers reduce risk of user touching hot blocks.
- Solid aluminium blocks provide even heating.
Lightweight design allows rapid heating. Use up to 260˚C. For vials, tubes and flasks from 10 ml to 5 litres, plus option for Florentine (pear-shaped) flasks.
- Choice of block finishes.
Fluoropolymer coating gives superb chemical resistance. Anodised finish is durable, lower cost option.
- Heat-On heats hotter, faster
Heat-up tests have shown Heat-On can boil a 250 ml flask of water in under 11 minutes, faster than an oil bath and faster than other blocks
The risk of oil fires and injury from hot oil spills, plus the mess and cost associated with the use of oil means that oil baths no longer represent safe working practice in labs.
