Optimal sample preparation with the Heidolph Polymax 1040
The high resistance and good performance of the devices from Heidolph Instruments ensure that you are guaranteed complete mixing of your working materials. The manufacturer's laboratory shakers come in a wide variety of designs and have various helpful functions depending on the type.
The devices can be used in particular in the food industry, in laboratories, in pharmacies or in genetic engineering. With the carefully developed models, samples can be mixed, cooled or heated by variable temperature control via an analog control knob.
The Heidolph Polymax 1040 can be used with a cover hood or combined with an modular incubator system, as required. The product series includes two models. These work with a 10 ° or 5 ° tilt angle. Our team will be happy to advise you on the devices and their features.
The main features of the model
The tumbler is suitable for a load weight of 5 kg. For this purpose, you have the option to set the analog process timer of the device up to 120 minutes or continuous operation . Also, the use of various sample containers is also possible without any problems. Thus, Petri dishes or the popular Erlenmeyer flasks can be used.
With the two available rotatable controls, you can set the device to up to 50 rpm or activate the timer. Overheating protection prevents the shaker from overloading. The Heidolph Polymax 1040 is subject to the IP40 standard . The second unit in the 1000 series is available with either a 5 ° or 10 ° tilt angle. With a larger tilt angle, the samples are shaken and mixed a little more.
Precise results thanks to maximum functionality
The Heidolph Polymax 1040 is a medium sized model that comes in a white design with black controls and a black sample holding surface, making it a high-quality, durable instrument for the modern laboratory. Two rotary controls and two keys allow uncomplicated control. The tumbler proves to be an easy-to-clean and intuitive device that is an asset to any laboratory operation.
The combination with an incubator for mixing temperature-controlled samples represents a practical extension. And the hood, which you can purchase in addition to the Polymax 1040, also provides effective protection for sensitive samples. So the mixing process for temperature-controlled materials can be reliably completed with this model. The standard applicable to this temperature-controlled device is the IEC 60529 IP40 protection class. Among other things, it regulates the device's compatibility of splash water.
Also in terms of safety, you will not be disappointed with this article from the house of Heidolph. The integrated safety measures include overheating protection and protection through the appropriate protection of the power supply. Thus, the product resets itself if overheating is imminent.
Another safety factor is granted by the beep that goes into effect when the timer function expires. The acoustic alarm informs about the completion of the mixing process. In this way, you will not forget the running product with its samples during further laboratory activities.
Technical data at a glance
The load capacities of the work surface of this model are about 5 kg. The article itself weighs 8 kg. The total size of the holding surface for the samples is 290 mm x 258 mm, making it particularly easy to handle and flexible to stow away at the workstation. This makes it particularly suitable for smaller laboratories where you need more space on the work surface from time to time.
The power consumption is 115 watts. The movement mode of the Polymax 1040 is tumbling, which ensures good mixing of samples depending on the tilt angle of the platform. A stronger tilt angle means an increased shaking effect. So if you want your samples to be mixed even more efficiently, you should choose the product with the 10 ° tilt angle. The footprint for the temperature controlled model does not require any special features, it should only be protected from splashing water.
