DescriptionThe MPS30 can take 3 samples simultaneously within the optimized heating block with a maximum temperature of 400°C (752ºF). A plateau facility is included with variable ramp rate between 0.5 and 10°C (1 to 18°F) in 0.1°C (0.2°F) increments. The tubes are illuminated with bright white LED’s to give the clearest view of the samples during the melt. The block has been designed for easy access for cleaning, the front of the head is fully removable to allow full access to the micro furnace. The MPS30 has a large clear back lit alphanumeric LCD display, running the menu system which clearly guides you through the melting process with comprehensive directions. It is possible to record up to 8 events in memory for each of the three sample tubes. The MPS30 features the head up display, this unique feature displays a floating image of the block temperature, visible through the eyepiece, in front of the tubes. The head up display eliminates the need for the user to keep switching their gaze between the tubes and the temperature display. To allow the most comfortable viewing angle the MPS30 features a 2-stage head adjustment. The head can then be stored safely back within the body of the unit for storage. The design of the unit has lots of other useful features such as slots for storing pre-prepared samples and a storage draw to hold a container of capillary tubes. An accessory printer is available separately to produce a written record of the melt, and all units are supplied with a NIST calibration certificate showing individual serial numbers for traceability.
