IKA RCT basic: Magnetic stirrer for practical use
A powerful magnetic stirrer is indispensable in every laboratory. The RCT basic is used for optimal and precise mixing of different substances. This is done particularly quickly - and the warm-up process does not take long either(6.5 K/min). With the RCT standard, up to 36 syntheses are possible simultaneously. Internal control of the stirrer ensures particularly high efficiency. The unit also has a digital LED display to control the process. It also uses IP 42 protection type technology - optimal protection is thus guaranteed. In addition, the delivery includes two magnetic rods, a screw driver and a stainless steel temperature sensor
IKA RCT Standard magnetic stirrer - Safety Control
When it comes to safety, the device leaves nothing to be desired. First of all, the magnetic stirrer has IP 42 protection as well as overheating protection and a high heat control accuracy, it reduced self heating. And also with regard to the use of aggressive chemicals, the RCT basic offers special safety features. For example, both the housing and the aluminum heating plate are made of robust stainless steel, which is resistant to many chemical substances. Another important feature of the "RCT Standard Safety Control" is the possibility to set a maximum torque or a minimum speed at low viscosity of the medium(anti-blocking function). This prevents, for example, small particles from jamming in the medium, resulting in uncontrolled movements.
RCT basic: Robust design and practical functions
The magnetic stirrer impresses with its robust and hard-wearing design. The digital display including illumination is another highlight. The heating plate, which is made of aluminum, ensures that you do not have to stay with the device the entire time during the process. In addition, the plate is fireproof and has an optimal chemical resistance. The heating power of the RCT basic is 600 watts. It also comes with a innovative temperature control function for precise temperature control: the heating control with the connected external temperature sensor is also designed for safety. If the device exceeds the temperature of more than 50 °C, a warning signal sounds. The model runs with laborworldsoft software. As an alternative to the Basic, the RCT Plate model (digital) impresses with its versatile digital functions.
Technical details at a glance
The temperature range of the RCT Standard is between 5 °C - 40 °C - at a humidity of 80%. The heating plate temperature has a safety circuit from 50 °C to 360 °C. When the product is set up, its height is 135 mm. The stirrer itself is 160 mm long and 80 mm high. Up to 20 liters of stirring volume is contained in the vessel. The unit itself weighs only 2.5 kg, making it very easy to integrate into the workplace. Between 50 Hz and 60 Hz is the frequency of the RCT basic. The device has an excellent energy efficiency that works best for a more sustainable laboratory and it has a powerful maintenance free ec motor (speed range: up to 1,500 rpm) that will give you the most precise results. The digital display of the RCT standard shows you the temperature as well as the heating status.
