Laboratory Shaker: What are its uses and importance?

An agitator is an instrument for use by laboratories mostly of chemistry and biology, it is used to mix solutions or preparations, suspensions, these liquids that are going to make mixed or agitated are placed in vessels, tubes or flasks, since its beginnings the manual agitator fulfilled the function of mixing liquids, with technological advances the agitator systems are used in all scientific laboratories, industrial, chemistry, biology, among others.

We can find from a simple stirrer that has a surface or plate to magnetic stirrers, and varied models to meet the needs and different processes of mixing, suspension, dispersion, homogenization, heat transfer that are made between liquids or between liquids and solids in order to achieve such processes, the stirring is done in different ways, depending on the type of stirrer that is used.

Uses of Laboratory Shakers

The main function of laboratory agitators is to agitate liquid media, through different processes and types of agitation; Conveniently this device is the ideal complement for any laboratory, they can perform different processes such as crystallize, fumigate, homogenize, etc. Laboratory agitators present different types such as magnetic stirrers, vertical agitators, hand stirrers and other agitation systems.ย 

In addition to the remarkable use of stirrers which is to be mixed, they are also used to introduce high reaction liquid substances by means of runoff, by this action the risks of causing an accident are reduced; we should also take into account their classification to highlight the uses, as some are used to heat and mix at the same time at a constant temperature and movement, so we invite you to continue reading the article.ย 

General components of Laboratory Shakers

Normally these equipment are generally composed of two components, mainly the propulsion system, which is the motor of the agitators, and second, but just as important is the rod thinks fundamental that transmits the motor movement to the middle; now depending on the medium and process laboratory agitators have different functions and possibilities.ย 

According to the models and the manufacturer, laboratory agitators can have more components, in addition to accessories, that increase their effectiveness and efficiency, these accessories improve and expand their applications; giving very simple handling. Other components are related to current models such as the keys on the front that regulates the speed of agitation, and the electrical part that is simple and practical integrated to the housing that improve its functionality.ย
