EchoTherm™ Fully Programmable Digital Stirring Hot Plates are the most advanced and easy-to-use units available. In manual operation, simply select the parameter to be set and enter the value needed and the unit will do the rest. In the programmable mode, routines can be stored for instant recall and use. The stored routine will run automatically, without attention, and exactly the same time after time.

Programs can be simple or complex depending upon the need. Multiple temperatures, temperature ramp rates, stirring speeds and timed events can be stored. When run, the unit monitors the program to be sure it runs exactly as written. Complete walk-away automation.

We offer two different heater top materials: ceramic glass and milled-flat cast aluminum:

  • Ceramic glass tops have a maximum plate surface temperature in our units of 450ºC. They heat and cool very quickly
    and are more corrosion resistant than alumnimum plates. They are designed for heating a solution in a vessel.
  • Aluminum tops have a maximum plate surface temperature in our units of 450ºC. They are recommended for heating a solid on the heater plate surface. They heat more evenly than ceramic tops.

Includes the following product variants: EchoTherm™ HS61, EchoTherm™ HS61A, EchoTherm™ HS60, EchoTherm™HS60A, EchoTherm™HS40, EchoTherm™ HS40A
