IKA RCT 5 Digital Magnetic Stirrer

The new magnetic stirrer RCT 5 digital has a fantastic 850 W of power, making it an ideal device for demanding stirring tasks up to 20 Litres.

It has a multifunctional menu so whether you’re determining the direction of rotation, timer functions or sequence programming – the stirring process can be programmed individually from beginning to end. In this way, the reaction runs reliably and safely even without monitoring.

The rectangular plate has a scratch-resistant white ceramic coating which is less prone to scratches than a conventional magnetic stirrer plate.  The display is made of chemical resistant and hardened glass to increase user safety, and in addition, a symbol on the display warns users when the surface is hot to protect from burning.  The safety circuit can be adjusted up to 370 °C.
