EMS103P | Stirring and heating mantle with controller for 250 mL spherical flasks (other sizes from 300 mL up to 3 L also available)

Key Features

Heating and stirring mantle

  • Rigid housing provides strength and durability while supporting the weight of the flask and contents
  • Electromagnetic stirring capability from 50 rpm - 750 rpm
  • Mantle only covers bottom half of flask so contents are clearly visible
  • Fabric interior safely nestles glass flasks and reduces the chance of thermal shock
  • Feet on smaller sizes of mantles designed to provide stability and reduce heat transfer to bench or other surface
  • Splash guards and safety shields available

PL524 Pro-Stir temperature controller

  • Independent control of temperature and stirring speed
  • Controls mantle operating temperature up to 450℃
  • Controls mantle stirring speed from 50 rpm - 750 rpm
  • LED touch screen displaying actual and set temperatures
  • Adjustable safety temperature range with separate LED control panel
  • RS232 interface
  • Alarm signal


Heating mantle

This Wiggens heating and stirring mantle has been designed to hold and heat 250 mL spherical flasks. The rigid housing of the mantle provides strength and durability to safely support the weight of the flask and contents. The mantle operates at temperatures up to 450℃ which makes it suitable for most applications.

The heating mantle only covers the lower portion of the spherical flask so that the contents can be viewed and the mantle has a fabric interior to safely nestle flasks and reduce the chance of thermal shock. Smaller units have feet for stability and to reduce temperature transfer to a bench or other surfaces and larger units have multiple circuits for enhanced heating capability. 

PL524 Pro-Stir temperature controller

The PL524 Pro-Stir is a high precision controller that uses an advanced PID algorithm to minimise variability and overshoot of the heating mantle temperature. The unit also includes a self-adjustment function to monitor product temperature with feedback being provided to the controller through a PT100 sensor or a K-type thermocouple.

The PL524 Pro-Stir uses electromagnetic functionality to provide a stirring speed range from 50 rpm - 750 rpm. Speed is adjusted by a single dial and the controller features "Synchrostart" that maintains linkage between the magnetic field and the stir bar. The mantle-controller connection cord allows the controller to be placed outside a fume hood to protect it from corrosive atmospheres.

The PL524 Pro-Stir also features an adjustable safety temperature range that can be set through a separate control panel.
