This electric Bunsen burner combines the advantages of a regular gas burner with the clean and easy operation of a heating mantle. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel burner features a cone-shaped coiled resistance heater which directs radiant heat out from the cavity. Cooling vents circulate air to cool the base, making it possible to hold while in use. A detachable cowl also deflects heat from the medium surface.
Ideal for noncontact radiant heating of materials in test tubes, crucibles, small flasks, and beakers. Effective heating of a test tube sample should be done 25 mm above the top of the burner. Crucible heating may be achieved by removing the cowl.
Note: To regulate the power input and temperature of the Bunsen burner, a heating controller is required. Without a controller, the burner operates continuously at full heating power. The Bunsen burner can be purchased with or without the recommended controller (order controller separately).
