More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • ——Magnetic stir bar can resist high temperatures, corrosion, abrasion and high rotational forces, and has the properties of fine workmanship, no impurities and burrs on the surface, stable speed and no deviation.
  • ——PTFE magnetic stir bar is made of PTFE and high quality magnetic steel,its shape is cylindrical,smooth surface,reduce friction and improves smooth rotation.
  • ——10 Pcs set,all of them are 25 mm/ 0.98 inch.
  • ——Stir Plate Magnet is widely used in scientific research, universities,laboratories in the industrial and agricultural sectors, and is often used to stir mixed liquids.

From HBF: Make sure the components you use are compatible and rated for your intended application.  Contact manufacturer with questions about suitability or a specific application.  Always read and follow manufacturer directions.

 

  • Use along with a compatible Erlenmeyer Flask and Stir Plate to do Stir Plate Yeast Starters.
  • Why a Stir Plate? The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.
  • Why get 10?  Generally, you’re going to save money buying in bulk.  Having these on hand allows you to do multiple starters at once and… you’ll have spares if you mistakenly dump your stir bar into your fermenter.
