The Thermo Scientific SP87325 Safe-T SH9 analog stirring hot plate has a 9.1 x 9.1 inch cast aluminum top plate, a temperature range of 38 to 220 degrees C, and an accuracy of + or - 2 degrees C. The cast aluminum top plate provides uniform heat distribution and resistance to chipping. It has analog temperature regulation by thermostat with knob control. A well in the top plate can accommodate a thermometer (sold separately) for precise temperature control. It has a speed range of 60 to 1,200 rpm with analog knob control. The plate has a maximum temperature-limiting thermostat that shuts off the power if the temperature reaches 246 degrees C to prevent overheating. This hot plate is UL listed as safe for Class 1, Group C and D flammable gases or solvent vapors that can produce explosive or ignitable mixtures. Designed for permanent installation, the enameled steel housing has integrated mounting lugs. It comes with 1/2-inch conduit, 18 inches of lead wire, and one 2 × 0.38 inch (5 × 1cm) (W x D) polytetrafluoroethylene-coated stir bar. (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) This stirring hot plate is used to heat glassware and heat and mix liquid solutions for scientific applications.

Laboratory hot plates are electric or gas-fired benchtop appliances that are used to heat glassware or its liquid or solid contents. Stirring hot plates can stir a liquid solution by means of a stir bar that is spun magnetically inside the vessel holding the solution. Hot plates are commonly used in scientific research, clinics, and classrooms.
