Laboratory shakers

Laboratory agitators are electromechanical devices commonly used in laboratories to homogeneously mix solutions and suspensions. These are usually made up of a plate, which is moved by an electric motor. The sample to be mixed is placed in a container, which can be a beaker, tube or flask, which is positioned on a vibrating surface.

These equipment are used in the manufacture of chemicals, cosmetics, food, coatings among others. They are easy to adapt to small spaces and are easy to move from one place to another.

Our Best Selling Agitator

They are the most used in laboratories and in turn the safest, because they use shaker bars that can be disinfected. This type of mixer consists of a plate with a magneto or a series of electro magnets, arranged in a circular shape at the bottom, which create a rotating magnetic field that acts by an electric motor commanded by an electronic device. The stirring (magnetic) bar, normally coated with an inert film such as Teflon, is placed inside the container and the vessel or container is placed on top of the plate. Once running, the shaker bar begins to rotate, propelled by the electric motor that moves the magnets. The size and shape of the magnetic bar determine the effectiveness of the stirring process, considering a constant speed. Some models of magnetic stirrers also have a heating system - some reach up to 300ยบC - to heat the samples at the same time they are stirred.
