Asynt’s popular best practice guide for safely using laboratory heating blocks has been updated for 2020.
When utilised properly, heating blocks provide a safe, convenient and productive tool for heating round-bottomed flasks, tubes and vials. Typically used in combination with a standard hotplate stirrer, they are proven to provide superior heat-conducting properties when compared to oil baths and present a much lower fire risk. Using blocks also makes the clean-up of glassware far easier as there is no residual oil contamination on the outside of the reaction vessel.
Dr Ffion McKeague, Technology Manager at Asynt said: "Our original best practice guide was written in conjunction with internationally respected experts from the Department of Chemistry, University of St Andrews and Advanced Chemical Safety Inc. The 2020 Laboratory Heating Blocks - Best Practice Guide has been updated with new improved illustrations and technical data to lead users through best practices for glassware inspection, setting up a reaction, heating the reaction and the post-reaction cool-down phase.".
