The Frey Scientific 1324333 Advanced Ceramic Top Hot Plate has a one-piece ceramic top and a microprocessor control for heating glassware and contents to between 5 to 500 degrees C, includes a four-inch square hot plate with a chemical-resistant, easy-to-clean, reflective white surface, and has an illuminated LED digital display, a built-in support rod holder with locking knob, a heat-resistant polymer body, and a two-year warranty. Hot plates are used to heat glassware and contents in laboratories.
This hot plate is housed in a heat-resistant polymer body that stays cool to the touch and channels fluids away from internal components. An LED display with built-in memory recalls the last set temperature, and a temperature knob adjusts the setpoint. A caution indicator light illuminates when heat is turned on and remains on until top plate cools down. The built-in support rod holder with locking knob at rear holds a standard threaded support rod to suspend instrumentation such as clamps and probes.
|Temperature range||5 to 500 degrees C|

|Maximum capacity||600mL H2O|
|Top plate composition||Ceramic|
|Body type||Heat-resistant polymer|
|Power supply||120V 50/60 Hz|
|Top plate dimensions||4 x 4 inches (H x W)|
|Body dimensions||4.3 x 6.6 x 10.8 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Researchers, professionals and hobbyists use hot plates to heat a variety of liquids and solutions in chemistry, food and beverage, biology, lab, and home applications. Hotplates can have either a digital or an analog display, and can show temperature range, or stirring speed. Hot plate surfaces are commonly made of ceramic-glass or stainless steel, and have coatings such as porcelain. They come in a variety of dimensions. Some units can work with stirrers that can be supported with clamps and rods.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
