Water baths

Q: Water Baths : What is the minimum and maximum water level for the Stuart SWB3D water bath?

A: For the Stuart water baths, the water needs to completely cover the heating element to the level of the platform. For the SWB3D, this means that there needs to be approximately 50mm depth of water (about 6.5 to 7 litres) in the base. The maximum fill height above the platform is approximately 130mm, which would give a total water volume of approximately 24 litres.

Q: Water Baths : Why is the heating element inside the Stuart water baths rather than underneath?

A: Internal heating elements give extremely fast warm up and very accurate control as the heater sensor can react much quicker to changes in temperature.
