Specifying a High Viscosity Stirrer

Labs and pilot plants mixing high viscosity materials place special performance requirements on their overhead stirrers.  Viscosity of a fluid, as defined by Wikipedia, “is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress.”  It is due to friction between particles in a fluid that move at different velocities. As…

How to Shop for an Overhead Stirrer

R100C Overhead Laboratory Stirrer

Stirring is a common activity in research labs as scientists work to refine processing procedures.  Two of the most common techniques are magnetic stirring with or without a hotplate, and overhead stirrers. Benchtop overhead stirrers are not equipped with hotplates. But unlike magnetic stirrers they are able to process larger volume samples and samples with…
