SMP Series Melting Point Apparatus

SMP10 Digital Melting Point Apparatus
SMP20 Digital Melting Point Apparatus


The SMP10 and SMP20 have been designed with safety and ease of operation in mind making it ideal for use in education. The temperature is selected, measured and displayed digitally making it accurate and negating the need for a thermometer. The SMP10 displays temperature to 1 degree resolution while the more advanced SMP20 has a 0.1 degree resolution as well as a variable ramp rate and hold key so that the exact melt temperature can be recorded.




  • Clear observation and use - Two samples can be tested simultaneously. They are viewed via a magnifying lens with clear observation aided by built in illumination.
  • Extendible back feet allow the unit to be operated at the optimum viewing angle.
  • Full access to the block aids cleaning.
  • The simple to follow instrructions are printed directly on the instrument in most European languages for ease of use.
