Magnetic-Stirrer-Table

Magnetic-Stirrer-Table details

CerCell offer 3 x MST variants: Standard (12 magnets) and Compact (8 magnets) and Ultra (8 magnets) mechanical Magnetic-Stirrer-Table (MST) for adaptation to various Process-Control-System (PCS) servo motor's. Able to transfer comprehensive amount of power though depending on the particular servo motor capacity. Servo motors rated higher than 40 watt is recommended to drive any of the MST from 50 RPM and up.

Be aware that some small motors from a few PCS suppliers rated at 10-25 watt and like 0.1 Nm torque without encoder may have difficulties operating the MST smoothly at very low RPM.

A popular agitation setup is based on the Biostat designed ID39-B based on MST-disc + motor adapter standard and PowerGrip WK-21 rubber coupling. It takes only a few seconds to exchange the servo motor from your Stirred-Tank-Reactor (STR) and mount on the MST.

The Applikon ID25-A nose drive fits any CerCell MST mounted with ID25A tower. The ID25A motor nose is widely used by several PCS suppliers (Applikon, DASGIP, Broadley-James). The exchange of servo motor from STR to CerCell MST takes only few seconds.

Latest use of NEMA-23 step servo motors gives a compact solution able to agitate up to 13 liter SUBs easily. Cadmus from www.cronus-pcs.com with ID39-B adapter kit mounted on green MST-C. NEMA-23 have the advantage of being an international standard easy to exchange adapter on.

The Eppendorf ISS ESM60C or ESM80 motor when mounted with ID39-B adapter fits any MST equipped with ID39-B MST-disc.

Advanced Perseus motor drive unit (from www.cronus-pcs.com) benefit from the geared precision Papst servo motor with ID39-B adapter kit. Here mounted on MST-U with MST-disc driving the 3.2 liter CellVessel.

Four MST-U each with white POM SUB-Support-Square (SSS) feet. Mounted on MST-U the 3.2 litre SUB driven by Kollmorgen servo motor.
