Sheldon Manufacturing SSI3 Benchtop Shaking Incubator

Category Incubated Benchtop Shakers
Manufacturer Sheldon Manufacturing
Country of manufacture the United States of America

The Sheldon Manufacturing SSI3 incubated benchtop orbital shaker has a transparent hood that lifts up via a hydraulic system so it will function in tight places. All of our shaking incubators feature stainless steel interiors which provide excellent durability and an easy-to-clean surface. Each unit has an easy-to-read LED display. The rotation platform is included with each unit and is self-centering for easy installation.

All major functions -- temperature, RPM and time -- have alarms that alert the user to deviations from set parameters. Overtemperature protection is provided via a safety thermostat. Digital keypad operation offers the ability to calibrate the temperature controller to a reference thermometer.

To better support the load over years of constant use, we utilize four load bearing positions for optimal weight distribution. Features include:

  • Microprocessor Control
  • Load Flexibility
  • Shaking Platform Included
  • Independent Controls for Temperature, Timer, and Shaker
  • Full Line of Shaking Accessories
  • 24 Month Limited Warranty
