MELTING POINT METER         measuring instrument
Melting Point Meter
Melting Point Meter Model M5000
The Melting Point Meter Model M5000 is an automatic system.
It is easy to use and lightweight, with on-screen instruction prompts and temperature control accessed via a LCD display.
Fast measurement across all ranges of temperature is achieved by the inclusion of an integrated cooling fan.
An alarm can be programmed to alert the user when melting point is reached.
With this instrument, powdery substances with a melting point up to 400 C can be examined.
A fan cooling allows fast measurements in every range of temperature.
The display provides a clearly-arranged readout of all important measuring data.

How does an automatic melting point meter operate?
The determination of melting point is a fundamental technique in sample analysis, yielding essential information on material composition and purity.
While it is possible to manually heat a sample and observe it, perhaps through a microscope, to determine melting point, this is a cumbersome and unreliable approach.
The modern melting point meter is faster and more accurate, providing reproducible results that do not rely on the skill of the individual operator and that can be printed for a permanent record.
Digital control means that the sample is heated, the melting point is recorded, the apparatus is cooled, it is ready for the next sample in a few minutes without operator intervention.
Sample sizes are small, being just enough powdered material to fill a small capillary tube, and the output reading is accurate to within 0.3 - 0.5C with good reproducibility.
The low skill levels required mean that the melting point meter can be operated by a lab assistant, or installed outside of the lab for operation by trained personnel in a warehouse or production facility.
