Save energy with these laboratory reaction stations

By Chemical Engineering |

Compared with the use of hotplate stirrers or heating mantles, the Stem RS, Stem Omni and Stem Integrity Reaction Stations can reduce energy costs by as much as 90%, says the manufacturer. Equipped for parallel synthesis, these “lab-in-a-box” alternatives to traditional heating, cooling and stirring systems consume as little as 300 W, making them energy efficient and inexpensive to run. In comparison, hotplate stirrers generally consume between 550 and 950 W, says the company. The three Stem ranges increase laboratory throughput by providing precise control of heating, cooling and stirring, from –30 to 300°C. They can accommodate between six and 50 vessels simultaneously, and will run unsupervised. — Bibby Scientific Ltd., Stone, U.K.
