This lab scale platform shaker has a powerful yet quiet shaking mechanism that has been designed for problem free continuous use. Model SSL1 provides a smooth orbital shaking action with an orbit of 16mm and speed range of 30 to 300rpm, ideal for most culturing / aeration applications. It can be used in environmental chambers and CO2 incubators.
The cradle type platform has six rubber cushioned horizontal securing bars with quick release handles. They can be easily adjusted both vertically and horizontally to hold most sizes and types of vessel, including flasks, bottles and beakers. For example, they will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks or bottles: 12 x 250ml or 8 x 500ml or 6 x 1000ml or 2 x 2000ml.
The main advantage of this cradle system is that it can accommodate different sizes of vessel, a common requirement where shakers are used by different people in the laboratory.
Speed is fully variable and is set digitally for consistency. The speed is microprocessor controlled and accurately maintained even over long runs. A digital built-in timer allows shaking times from 1 to 999 minutes to be set. After the timer has counted down, the shaker stops and sounds an alert. Alternatively the unit can be set for continuous operation.
A larger platform is available as an optional accessory (catalogue number SSL1/1). Designed to increase the capacity of the SSL1, the platform is 510 x 510mm with six securing bars. It will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks or bottles: 30 x 250ml or 16 x 500ml or 9 x 1000ml or 4 x 2000ml.
When this platform is fitted, the maximum permissible speed is 150rpm.
