The Hanna Instruments HI 190M-1 is a magnetic mini stirrer that comes with a magnetic mini-stir bar, and has an internal Speedsafe control mechanism to assure maximum speed of no more than 1,000 revolutions per minute (rpm), even when the sample container is removed. Speed range of the unit is 100 to 1,000 rpm, and maximum stirring capacity is 1 liter (.26 gallons). The device comes with a plastic, chemical-resistant acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) cover, and works with a 110/115V power supply. Overall dimensions are 45 x 120 x 120 mm/1.8 x 4.8 x 4.8 inches (H x W x D). The stir bar is 25 x 7 mm/ 0.98 x 0.28 inches (L x W), and the instrument weighs 640g (1.4 lb.). The stirrer comes with a one-year limited warranty. This magnetic stirrer is used by researchers, professionals, and hobbyists to stir a variety of liquids and solutions in chemistry, food and beverage, pulp and paper, lab, and home applications.
Researchers, professionals and hobbyists use a magnetic mini stirrer to stir a variety of liquids and solutions in chemistry, food and beverage, pulp and paper, lab, and home applications. Magnetic stirrers have a rotating magnetic field that causes a stir bar, immersed in liquid, to spin and stir the liquid. A magnetic stirrer is quieter, and more efficient than a motorized stirrer, and has no moving external parts that could break or wear out. Because of its small size, a stirring bar is more easily cleaned and sterilized than manual stirring devices, and does not require lubricants which can contaminate the reaction vessel and the product.
Hanna Instruments manufactures analytical instrumentation and supplies, including pH meters, electrodes, chemical reagents, and buffer solutions. The company, founded in 1978 and headquartered in Woonsocket, RI, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 standards.
