To heat up liquids quickly and safely, SI Analytics hotplates SLK 12 are the optimum solution. The heating power can be adjusted in 9 steps and heats up to 1.7 kW (with extended hotplate step 2 and the 230 V version only). The pore-free glass-ceramics surface (easy-to-clean) is highly resistant against chemical influences and temperature fluctuations. The glass-ceramics surface has a high infrared permeability and hence is exceptional economic saving energy and time. The heating surface is throughout planar and offers not heated border areas. This allows the vessel to be heated partially or completely removed off the hotplate. High-quality, powder-coated and nonsensitive stainless steel casing. Heating area with two zones (230 V) for small and bigger vessels. Indicator LED for residual heat for safe operation. An optional compressed air connection allows operation in highly aggressive environment.
