Tornado Overhead 1Tornado™ Overhead Stirring System


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.

"Since using the Tornado system we can simultaneously carry out several reactions. This has greatly increased our work efficiency and the Carousel 6 part of the system also offers parallel magnetic stirring as well.”
Professor Chen Biqiang, College of Life Science and Technology, Beijing Institute of Chemical Technology
