Overhead Stirring System™ – Stirring productivity increased by up to 600%


The Tornado allows powerful, controlled mechanical stirring of up to six round bottom flasks when combined with the Carousel 6 Plus Reaction Station; offering unrivalled stirring for both viscous samples and for the dispersion of delicate solids in solution.


  • Integrates with Carousel 6 Plus to provide heated and stirred reactions
  • Rapid heating to 180 ˚C, with water-cooled reflux head
  • Perform reactions under an inert atmosphere
  • Accepts 50 ml, 100 ml and 250 ml round bottom flasks
  • Uses a single overhead stirrer – save space and money compared with multiple set-ups
  • Compatible with all leading brands of overhead stirrer
  • 2-speed drive allows overhead stirrers with less torque to be used for higher viscosities
  • Stir to 1,000 rpm in low viscosity
  • Max. viscosity 10,000 mPas at 500 rpm
  • Integral polycarbonate safety guard prevents accidental contact with rotating parts
  • Optional clamp and stand provides added stability during operation
