FTS Multi-Cool Low Temprature Bath

FTS Multi-Cool Low Temprature Bath

The Multi-Cool low-temperature bath eliminates the need for liquid nitrogen in a wide variety of applications. The benchtop Multi-Cool baths provide up to 8 liters of working fluid volume at temperatures between -80°C and +100°C. The self-contained low temperature bath has a PID control for precise temperature control with RS-232 interface capability. These baths include a magnetic stirrer in the bottom of the bath that agitates the fluid for optimal temperature uniformity and stability.
