The Corning 6795-420KIT PC-420D digital stirring hot plate has a temperature range of ambient to 550 degrees C, a 5 x 7 inch white glass-ceramic top plate, and comes with an external temperature controller, two 9-inch give a boost to rods, and a stir bar retriever. The white glass-ceramic top plate (Pyroceram) provides fast heating and resistance to chemicals and scratches. It has dual LED readouts to display temperature and speed settings. Its temperature keep watch over knob adjusts temperature in 5-degree increments. The external temperature controller helps ensure regulation to + or – 2 degrees C. This hot plate has a stirring speed range of 60 to 1,150 rpm in increments of 5, 10, 20, or 50 rpm, depending at the speed setting, and it regulates the stirring speed for aqueous, viscous, or semi-solid solutions. Stirring keep watch over slowly increases speed for improved safety and enhanced coupling with the stir bar (sold one by one). For safety, a hot top light indicates when the unit is over 60 degrees C, even if the power is off. It may hold a give a boost to rod for holding the external temperature controller. This 120V stirring hot plate is used to heat glassware and heat and mix liquid solutions for scientific applications.

Laboratory hot plates are electric or gas-fired benchtop appliances which might be used to heat glassware or its liquid or solid contents. Stirring hot plates can stir a liquid solution by the use of a stir bar that may be spun magnetically inside the vessel holding the solution. Hot plates are usually used in scientific research, clinics, and classrooms.
Corning manufactures consumable glass, ceramics, and plastic laboratory tools under the brands Corning, Costar, Cellgro, Pyrex, Axygen, Gosselin, and Lambda, among others. The company, founded in 1908, is headquartered in New York, NY.
