Measure melting point the simple, easy, and economical way with this apparatus. Measures melting point up to 250° C.
Here's a very simple, easy, and economical way of measuring melting point. It consists of an aluminum testing block with a slanted hole to accept a thermometer. The material to be tested is sprinkled on the top of the block, a thermometer is inserted in the slanted hole, and the block is heated from below by a Bunsen burner or other heat source. As soon as the material starts to melt, read the thermometer for the melting point. This apparatus can be used to measure melting point up to 250° C. Support stand, support ring, Bunsen burner, and thermometer are needed but not included.
