The SHM-828 is an eight line solution heater designed for superfusion. Construction is such that all eight lines can flow simultaneously. The solution is heated as it flows through 21.5 cm of 18 gauge type 316 stainless steel tubing. The straight flow path allows for easy cleaning. If stainless steel tubing is a problem for your compounds, polyethylene tubing can be drawn through the heater tubes. This has the advantage of eliminating metal contact and reduces the internal dead volume of the tubes.
For single output applications an MP-8 Perfusion Manifold with very low dead space can be connected directly to the 18 gauge tubes. An ML-8 Miniature Manifold may be used if PE-50 Polyethylene Tubing is pulled inside the heater tubes.
Solution temperatures can be maintained at 37°C for flow rates up to 5 ml/min. or 50°C at 3 ml/min. per line. Higher flow rates can be achieved if fewer lines are used.
Each heater is supplied with a TA-29 Thermistor Cable Assembly (as shown on the right) which allows for monitoring the actual bath temperature (T2 reading in our system) and 3 meters of PE-160 Tubing.
