Large volume stirring for tanks and drums
The upgraded Cool Stir® Large Volume Magnetic Stirrer uses inert PTFE-coated magnetic stirring bars to efficiently stir fluid volumes from 10 liters up to 208 liters (2.5 to 55 gallons). A rugged built-in aluminum support system and durable, easy-to-clean polypropylene platform are engineered to carefully carry up to 220kg (485lbs) permitting mixing in a regular plastic barrel or drum. The compact size of the unit makes it ideal for use on the bench or counter top with vessels no larger than 80 liters (20 gallons). Stirring speed is continuously changeable to around 600 rpm (maximum operational rpm that depends on volume and density), delivering torque for gentle mixing through powerful agitation with a deep vortex. The unit and its 100 watt (1/8 horsepower) motor are air cooled and heat is prevented from being transmitted to thermolabile solutions by the use of insulation. The fully enclosed design of the unit safeguards users from internal moving parts.
