The Tornado allows powerful, controlled mechanical stirring of up to six round bottom flasks when combined with the Carousel 6 Reaction Station; offering unrivalled stirring for both viscous samples and for the dispersion of delicate solids in solution.

Key Features

  • Integrates with Carousel 6 to provide heated and stirred reactions.
  • Rapid heating to 180˚C, with water cooled reflux head.
  • Perform reactions under an inert atmosphere.
  • Accepts 50ml, 100ml and 250ml round bottom flasks.
  • Uses a single overhead stirrer – save space and money compared with multiple set-ups.
  • Compatible with all leading brands of overhead stirrer.
  • 2-speed drive allows overhead stirrers with less torque to be used for higher viscosities.
  • Stir to 1,000rpm in low viscosity.
  • Max. viscosity 10,000mPas at 500rpm.
  • Integral polycarbonate safety guard prevents accidental contact with rotating parts.
  • Optional clamp and stand provides added stability during operation.
