Special features of the IKA VORTEX 1
The extremely robust housing is made of chemically inert plastics in the upper part of the housing and on the test tube attachment. The bottom part is made of coated die-cast zinc. This not only ensures a long material life, but also a low noise level.
The unit is easy to operate as there are no extra displays, a multitude of buttons or an internal timer to explain. This allows you to significantly speed up the training of new staff in your laboratory and avoid user errors.
The flexible Vortex 1 is suitable for test tubes, centrifuge tubes, Eppendorf tubes and other small tubes up to 30 mm in diameter and of course includes the manufacturer's warranty. Talk to our competent team of consultants about which tubes and attachments you may need in addition.
Technical features at a glance
As your reliable partner in the laboratory, we are aware that good results can also fail due to technical details. We have summarized all the technical details for you here.
With a shaking stroke of 4.5 mm and the permissible shaking weight of 0.1 kg (incl. attachment), the orbiting mixer is suitable for small samples and can be loaded with test tubes, centrifuge tubes or Eppendorf tubes with a maximum diameter of 30 mm. At a voltage of 100 - 240 volts frequency 50/60 Hz), the motor power consumption reaches 1.2 wat ts and the motor power output 0.8 watts (total power consumption 30 watts).
This helps the device reach a maximum speed of 2800 rpm (adjustable minimum speed is 1000 rpm). Something that not many laboratory devices can withstand in the long run is possible with this model: The possible duty cycle of 100% allows the mixer to remain switched on.
In addition, the compact but stable laboratory device with its dimensions of 95 mm x 70 mm x 110 mm (W x H x D) and a weight of 0.828 kg hardly takes up any space in the laboratory. The model operates at ambient temperature ranges of permissible 5 °C - 40 °C and, thanks to its IP 40 protection class in accordance with DIN EN 60529, it is above all reliable for your employees even at a relative humidity of up to 80%.
