Description

MaxQ 4000 benchtop orbital shakers are durable and easy to use with a spacious 18 × 18 in. platform for higher vessel capacity. These benchtop units handle up to six 2L flasks. The clear, scratch-resistant lid allows unobstructed sample viewing without disturbing chamber temperature.
  • Triple eccentric drive delivers uniform motion with 0.75 in. (19mm) circular orbit
  • Timed or continuous-run modes
  • Clear, scratch-resistant lid for sample viewing
  • Safety interlock stops platform when lid is opened
  • Precisely monitor temperature and control chamber temperature over complete range with ±0.1C accuracy at 37°C with PID temperature controller
  • Over temperature safety feature with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling heat if main temperature controller fails
Analog Models:
  • Speed control from 40 to 400rpm by rotary dial
  • Integrated tachometer monitors and displays speed in rpm to guarantee an accurate setting
  • Easy-to-read LED digital temperature display
  • Continuous and timed operation from 1 to 60 min.
Digital Models:
  • Variable speed control from 15 to 500 rpm
  • View speed, temperature and time simultaneously on three individual LED displays which helps minimize errors in establishing running conditions
  • Continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hr. up to 999 hr. or 0.1 min. to 999 min.
  • Shaker shutdown and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking
  • User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized
  • Unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected and visual/audible alarms signal until condition is corrected
  • Soft-start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure
  • Solid-state DC brushless motor is maintenance free
