CMU metal-cased Electromantles are used in chemistry to heat liquids in round bottom flasks. They are ideal for busy laboratories with multiple users as they are very safe to use, the metal case being designed to remain “cool-to-the-touch” when in operation. Additionally, they have a stainless steel grounded earth screen covering the element and are double-fused for added safety. In the event of any liquid spillage, the heating mantles automatically cut out to protect the user from electric shocks.

  • Flexible coiled heating elements absorb shock, minimizing the risk of flasks breaking
  • Heating element is attached to rigid thermal insulating cartridge to ensure maximum heat transfer and support
  • Heating elements and insulation form an easy-to-replace heating cartridge
  • Unique airflow through ventilation slots beneath and around the rim and heating cartridge keep the exterior “cool-to-the-touch”
  • Stainless-steel screen covering the heating element is grounded directly to the cable for added protection
  • Mantles are double fused for added safety
  • Nonskid feet and support clamps add stability
  • Round bottom flask capacity of between 50 - 5000mL
  • Element temperatures up to 450°C
  • Built-in energy regulator
  • Indicator lamps for power and heater operation
