SKU# SMP30

Melting point apparatus, advanced

 

Maximum temperature 400°C
Patented head up display
Integrated cooling 350°C to 50°C in 10 minutes
Large easy to read user friendly interface

Designed for fast accurate determination of melting points, the SMP30 can take three samples simultaneously within the optimised heating block, the unit has a maximum temperature of 400°C. To allow maximum flexibility a plateau facility is included with variable ramp rate between 0.5 and 10°C in 0.1°C increments. The tubes are illuminated with bright white LED's to give the clearest view of the samples during the melt. The block has been designed for easy access for cleaning, the front of the head is fully removable to allow full access to the micro furnace.

The SMP30 has a large clear back lit alphanumeric LCD display, running the menu system which clearly guides you through the melting process with comprehensive directions. Language is switchable between English, German, French and Italian. It is possible to record up to 8 events in memory for each of the three sample tubes, as well as being temperature stamped these events are also date and time recorded, thanks to the integrated real time clock.

The SMP30 features the patent pending head up display, this unique feature displays a floating image of the block temperature, visible through the eyepiece, in front of the tubes. The head up display eliminates the need for the user to keep switching their gaze between the tubes and the temperature display, through the eyepiece they can now see both at once.

To allow the most comfortable viewing angle the SMP30 features a two stage head adjustment, in the first movement the head is pulled towards the user, then in a separate motion the angle of the head can be adjusted by up to 126°, and will automatically hold in place due to the torsion resistant design to create the perfect viewing angle. The head can then be stored safely back within the body of the unit for storage.

The design of the unit has lots of other useful features such as slots for storing pre-prepared samples and a storage draw to hold a container of capillary tubes. 

An accessory printer is available separately to produce a written record of the melt, and all units are supplied with a calibration certificate showing individual serial numbers for traceability.

SKU# SMP40

Melting point apparatus, automatic

 

Maximum temperature 400°C
Utilises latest technology in digital imaging
5.7 Inch colour VGA touch screen display
Unique split design concept
Integrated cooling 350°C to 50°C in 10 minutes
Also available with IQ/OQ documentation

The SMP40 automatic melting point uses the latest technology in digital image processing to accurately identify the melt of up to three samples simultaneously. The unit comes with a 5.7 inch colour VGA display, on which the melt can be watched real time, or the melt video will automatically be saved as an AVI file that can be reviewed later, either on the unit or via PC, providing traceability long after the sample has gone. The result can also be overridden if for any reason you dont agree with the result calculated by the image processing algorithm. 

The SMP40 is fully programmable via the touch screen display, once the user has set the plateau temperature up to the maximum temperature of 400°C they can select the ramp rate, between 0.1 and 10°C in 0.1°C increments. During use a library of preset methods can be built up to streamline the method input for repeat measurements. For materials where the user is unaware of an approximate melting point, and therefore unable to set the plateau temperature, the SMP30 can be used in rapid melt mode. During rapid melt mode a fast scan of the full temperature range is undertaken to provide an approximate melt temperature, then a method will be automatically programmed with the appropriate plateau temperature to allow a more accurate measurement to be carried out.

The SMP40 has an innovative split design concept, the unit can be used as normal or the control side and the melt side can be separated, allowing for the maximum in footprint flexibility. After the samples have been loaded the melt side of the unit can be placed at the back of the bench or even in a fume cupboard to catch any potentially dangerous fumes. Once the unit has been split the control panel side can be used in two orientations, either landscape or portrait to allow the perfect viewing angle whether you are sat or stood at the bench, the screen automatically changes orientation with the unit.

The unit can store up to 200 result files with videos, if required data can be easily transferred from the unit to a flash memory drive or PC via one of the USB connectors. 

The unit has been designed to include a number of other useful features such as slots to accommodate pre-prepared samples and a draw to house your unused melting point tubes. Also included in the draw is a handy glass cutter, which can be used to accurately cut tubes in half quickly and cleanly for users who prefer to use half tubes.

All units are supplied with a calibration certificate showing individual serial numbers for traceability. The SMP40 conforms to Pharmacopeia and GLP.

SKU# SMP50

Melting point apparatus, automatic

 

In the Stuart SMP50 Automatic Melting point the latest digital camera technology is employed to produce a high resolution video of the sample melt, this allows the intelligent melt algorithm to identify the smallest of changes within the sample, accurately and reliably determining the melting point of up to three samples simultaneously.

The SMP50 has a custom designed user interface based on an established Android platform for intuitive setup and navigation. The familiar elements of an Android operating system help the user to feel comfortable, with everything where you would logically expect it.
All operation is via the 7" high definition colour touchscreen. Once programmed, users can leave the SMP50 to complete the melt analysis independently, alternatively the melt can also be observed on the screen live or post melt. During post melt review additional measurement tags can be added if required, such as meniscus point or the automatically obtained result can be overwritten.

A generous 8GB on board storage is included, which should comfortably hold approximately 300 melts files including videos. Results can also be transferred via USB stick on to PC for a more permanent long term record. All video files include a temperature stamp, so whatever device you view them on you can confirm the automatically obtained result.
The SMP50 features a useful storage drawer to house all standard capillary tubes. The drawer also contains a small glass cutter that can be used to accurately cut sample tubes in half, for those users who prefer not to use whole tubes. Not only will the glass cutter always get the cut in the centre of the tube, but it will also reliably give a clean cut making sample loading cleaner and safer.

While all measurement files can be easily transferred onto a PC from the SMP50 there is also an accessory printer for direct printing of the results directly from the unit.

All units are factory supplied with a calibration certificate showing individual serial number for traceability. The SMP50 also conforms to Pharmacopeia and GLP.

For maximum ease of use the SMP20's simple-to-follow instructions are printed directly on the instrument in most European languages. The unit heats up quickly and remains at the selected plateau temperature until the user is ready to start the test. Two samples can be tested simultaneously and these are viewed via a magnifying lens aided by built-in illumination. Extendible back feet allow operation at the optimum viewing angle and the unit's design gives full access to the block for easier cleaning.

Jackie Taylor, Stuart Product Manager, commented, "With 0.1°C resolution, a hold button and an adjustable ramp rate, the SMP20 represents excellent value. This new instrument makes an ideal choice for chemists in both academia and industry who require these particular features but not the advanced capabilities of a much more expensive instrument."

The SMP20 is supplied complete with a pack of 100 melting point tubes and a calibration certificate showing the individual serial number for traceability.

The SMP40 automatic melting point uses the latest technology in digital image processing to accurately identify the melt of up to three samples simultaneously. The unit comes with a 5.7 inch colour VGA display, on which the melt can be watched real time, or the melt video will automatically be saved as an AVI file that can be reviewed later, either on the unit or via PC, providing traceability long after the sample has gone. The result can also be overridden if for any reason you dont agree with the result calculated by the image processing algorithm. 

The SMP40 is fully programmable via the touch screen display, once the user has set the plateau temperature up to the maximum temperature of 400°C they can select the ramp rate, between 0.1 and 10°C in 0.1°C increments. During use a library of preset methods can be built up to streamline the method input for repeat measurements. For materials where the user is unaware of an approximate melting point, and therefore unable to set the plateau temperature, the SMP30 can be used in rapid melt mode. During rapid melt mode a fast scan of the full temperature range is undertaken to provide an approximate melt temperature, then a method will be automatically programmed with the appropriate plateau temperature to allow a more accurate measurement to be carried out.

The SMP40 has an innovative split design concept, the unit can be used as normal or the control side and the melt side can be separated, allowing for the maximum in footprint flexibility. After the samples have been loaded the melt side of the unit can be placed at the back of the bench or even in a fume cupboard to catch any potentially dangerous fumes. Once the unit has been split the control panel side can be used in two orientations, either landscape or portrait to allow the perfect viewing angle whether you are sat or stood at the bench, the screen automatically changes orientation with the unit.

The unit can store up to 200 result files with videos, if required data can be easily transferred from the unit to a flash memory drive or PC via one of the USB connectors. 

The unit has been designed to include a number of other useful features such as slots to accommodate pre-prepared samples and a draw to house your unused melting point tubes. Also included in the draw is a handy glass cutter, which can be used to accurately cut tubes in half quickly and cleanly for users who prefer to use half tubes.

All units are supplied with a calibration certificate showing individual serial numbers for traceability. The SMP40 conforms to Pharmacopeia and GLP.
