The HP40 series programmable hot plates from Torrey Pines Scientific is ideal for precise temperature control of your samples. Mounted into a cast aluminum frame, the chemically resistant ceramic heater top of the HP40 is ideally suited for precise temperature control of liquid media.

With the HP40A on the other hand, solid samples can be heated directly on the plate surface. Its heater top is made from a cast aluminum alloy, enabling minimum pitting when milled. It is very flat and, thanks to its better heat conductivity, provides a more uniform heating across the surface, compared to ceramic glass.

Both models provide a 203 x 203 mm heater top with a heater power of 600 W. A platinum RTD sensor located under the plate surface determines the current temperature and forwards the information to a PID control loop.

The HP40 series laboratory hot plates is fully programmable. Its memory holds 10 methods, consisting of a maximum of 10 steps. Each step may contain a temperature, heating rate and timed event. Every method can be repeated up to 98 times or run continuously.

A DIN jack on the rear side of the unit accommodates an optional immersion probe, used to determine solution temperatures. In this regard we strongly recommend the use of a immersion probe for the most accurate temperature control.

The HP40 series comes with a large, easy-to-read LCD. The following parameters are displayed: measured plate surface or solution temperature (by means of immersion probe), count-down timer in hours, minutes and seconds, temperature ramp value as well as program steps.

All models feature a factory set electronic calibration, traceable to NIST, however, the user is able to recalibrate the unit to his own standard. A RS232 I/O port enables data collection or external PC control of the unit.
