The IKA RH basic 2; RH KT; RH basic KT/C or the IKA RH digi-
tal KT/C is a stirring instrument with heating function. It is used
in e.g. laboratories of the chemical industry, in scools as well
as in pharmacies. The instrument is suitable for tempering sub-
staces which are placed on the heating plate in vessels. By
means of a built-in stirring drive and with the help of a magne-
tic bar within the vessel, the substances can be stirred at the
same time. The mixing intensity is dependent on the motor
speed and on the size of the magnetic bar. The Der RH basic
KT/C and RH digital KT/C also has a contact thermometer
connection in compliance with requirements of DIN 12 878 and
an adjustable safety circuit.
