I’m in need of an explosion proof hotplate. Must be Class 1 Division 1 explosion proof for use in a licensed processing facility.
We currently have two of the Thermo Scientific SHP9 hotplate, which I love and with which I am 100% satisfied. I was really bummed to find out earlier today that those models have been DISCONTINUED, and they only make the smaller SHP6 size. Well, we really like that big 9"x9" platform, and won’t be entirely satisfied with a 6"x6" platform. We process BULK quantities of crude extract, and the 6"x6" size just won’t cut it.
Is there anyone out there who has a lead on a viable alternative?
I will be eternally grateful.
