Features
Sample Determination

Sample determination

Three different samples can be determined simultaneously. The user watches the samples on the display panel through a 2.5 magnifying glass for precise determination, detects the start and completion of melting and stores the values by pressing a button. The optimized design of the heating block allows faster cooling times and as a result a higher throughput per hour.
Heating Block

Heating block

Optimized design of the heating block allows faster cooling times and therefore higher samples throughput per hour.

Calibration

Calibration

The fully menu guided Calibration and the BUCHI Calibration Standards guarantee exact calibrations.
