Bibby Scientific's Electromantles® from Electrothermal are engineered for safe and reliable heating of lab chemicals

Bibby Scientific announced that Electrothermal, the world's leading manufacturer of heating mantles, now provides a free "burn-off" process for all new Electromantles® prior to shipping. This allows lab scientists to use their Electrothermal mantles immediately for safe and reliable heating of chemicals and liquids in vessels of various shapes and sizes.

Electrothermal pioneered the UK's original laboratory heating mantle in 1943 as a dependable and efficient heating alternative to gas burners, oil baths or electric glow coils. Today, Electrothermal's mantles are hand-sewn and assembled at Bibby Scientific UK. Each mantle also undergoes the required "burn-off" process on-site, so that customers no longer need to carry out this task, which typically results in release of an unpleasant gas and sticky brown residue.

Electrothermal mantles are designed to be shock-proof, cool to touch - even when heating at temperatures up to 450°C, chemically resistant and highly durable.

"We've been engineering Electromantles for over 70 years, and our focus on product functionality and user safety is evident from our enviable quality and safety record," said Amy Rushton, Product Manager, Bibby Scientific. "Our mantles are proven to last for many years and are ideal for chemistry labs of all types, including multi-user labs in schools and universities."
