Vernier Product Information: The Stir Station is a high-quality, multi-function magnetic stirrer. It has a stirring capacity of 800 mL in a 1 L beaker. It works efficiently with beakers with a volume as small as 50 mL and with a wide range of sizes and shapes of magnetic stirring bars.
Here are the benefits of the Vernier Stir Station:
* Uses a closed-loop speed control, thus making it easier to fine tune its stirring speed (50-1250 RPM). * Has a stirring platform that is lit with three white, cool LED bulbs. The three LEDs are positioned beneath the translucent stirring platform, and offer sufficient lighting for a wide range of beaker sizes. * Includes a removable 18" ring stand post conveniently positioned and affixed to the stirrer base, at a distance that will easily accommodate most buret or utility clamps. * Runs on either AC power (adapter included) or four C batteries (not included). * Is sufficiently robust to operate most common-sized magnetic stirring bars or a Vernier Microstirrer. * Has a chemical-resistant plastic stirring plate. * 25.0 x 10.0 x 5.0 cm, 460 g (without batteries).
