The Frey Scientific 1324334 Advanced Ceramic Stirring Hot Plate has a one-piece ceramic top and a microprocessor control for heating glassware and contents to between 5 to 500 degrees C, stirring between 60 to 1600rpm, includes a four-inch square hot plate with a chemical-resistant, easy-to-clean, reflective white surface, and has an illuminated LED digital display, a built-in support rod holder with locking knob, and a heat-resistant polymer body. Hot plates are used to heat glassware and contents in laboratories.
This hot plate is housed in a heat-resistant polymer body that stays cool to the touch and channels fluids away from internal components. A microprocessor precisely controls speeds, and a continuous duty motor provides consistent stirring at all speeds. An LED display with built-in memory recalls the last set temperature, and a temperature knob adjusts the setpoint. A ramping feature slowly increases speed for safety and enhanced coupling, avoids splashes, improves spin bar control, and provides low-end speed control. A caution indicator light illuminates when heat is turned on and remains on until the top plate cools down. Stir protection automatically shuts down the heater if the stirrer motor stops or fails. The built-in support rod holder with locking knob at rear holds a standard threaded support rod to suspend instrumentation such as clamps and probes. The hot plate comes with a 1.5" (3.8cm) polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coated stir bar and a 92" (234cm) detachable, 3-wire cord and plug.

Researchers, professionals and hobbyists use hot plates to heat a variety of liquids and solutions in chemistry, food and beverage, biology, lab, and home applications. Hotplates can have either a digital or an analog display, and can show temperature range, or stirring speed. Hot plate surfaces are commonly made of ceramic-glass or stainless steel, and have coatings such as porcelain. They come in a variety of dimensions. Some units can work with stirrers that can be supported with clamps and rods.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
