Staufen, 15.11.2021 - IKA expands its magnetic stirrer product group: The powerful I-MAG mixes volumes up to 300 liters. Key features include: a powerful drive unit with a high IP protection class, a separate, cable-connected operating unit and a wide range of interfaces.
IKA's new industrial magnetic stirrer is suitable in the production environment for large volumes with low viscosity; on a pilot scale, it also mixes higher viscosity media. I-MAG has a strikingly compact design and thanks to numerous digital and analog interfaces, integration into process engineering systems or networks is simple.
Robust and strong
The drive unit consists of a powerful, wear-free motor and the magnetic coupling with high-performance neodymium magnets. Thus, it mixes particularly effectively - even liquids in double-walled containers or containers with insulated bottoms. Thanks to its closed stainless steel housing, I-MAG has a very high IP protection class of 64, which means it can be used without restriction even under harsh conditions and is easy to clean.
In order to reliably achieve high speeds even under difficult conditions, I-MAG has an adjustable start-up speed that prevents the magnetic stir bar from breaking off during the acceleration phase. It is also process-safe thanks to integrated detection of magnetic stir bar coupling. In the event of a tear-off or failure of magnetic coupling, the user is informed via the modern display of the control unit. Incidentally, I-MAG can be controlled fully automatically with laboratory software such as labworldsoft® 6.
