Melting Point Meters

The determination of a substance’s melting point is essential for recognizing its various qualities and potential applications. Melting point can also indicate a material's quality and safe use at various temperatures.

A melting point meter determines melting point temperatures by gradually heating up to four specimens simultaneously in a sealed chamber. Some melting point meters use mercury-free thermometers, digital controls and video recording to capture the precise melting point of a sample. Some meters may also use frequency indicators to determine boiling points.

Modern melting point meters offer educational value and convenience by incorporating computer control, user-friendly displays, and highly-accurate control of heating rates.
