VERNIER GO DIRECT MELT STATION
Vernier's Go Direct Melt Station accurately determines the melting temperature of solid substances. It directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.
Teach students the visual detection capillary method of melting point determination with the Vernier Go Direct Melt Station. It accurately measures melting temperatures of a solid (up to 260°C) and the real-time graphing provides a unique perspective of the melting process.
The wide-angle observation and magnification window, LED-lit heater block and adjustable tilt base give students a clear view of the substance as they witness the state change. Internal cooling fans reduce the waiting time between sample testing. Also included is an important safety feature that automatically powers down the heating block after 60 minutes with no change to the control knob.
The Vernier Go Direct Melt Station can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Determine the melting temperature of an known organic solid such as aspirin, ibuprofen or caffeine.
• Identify an unknown organic solid by its melting temperature.
• Use melting temperature to analyse reaction products.
Wired or Wireless — The Flexibility to Choose
Vernier's Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook or computer using Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app. No additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Vernier Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
GAPRO Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro includes all the features of the free Vernier Graphical Analysis app, plus enhanced functions for more advanced analysis. Its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities inspire students to explore crucial scientific concepts and analyze data in new complex and insightful ways.
GAPRO is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.

Educational use only:
Vernier and Kidwind products are designed for educational use. They are not appropriate for industrial, medical or commercial applications. Details
- Warranty: 5 year limited warranty (excluding consumables)
- Weight: 1kg
ACSCH027 - Chemical fundamentals - Properties and structure of atoms - The type of bonding within substances explains their physical properties, including melting and boiling point, conductivity of both electricity and heat, strength and hardness
ACSCH026 - Chemical fundamentals - Properties and structure of materials - Differences in the properties of substances in a mixture, such as particle size, solubility, magnetism, density, electrostatic attraction, melting point and boiling point, can be used to separate them
ACSPH021 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Heating processes - Change of state involves internal energy changes to form or break bonds between atoms or molecules; latent heat is the energy required to be added to or removed from a system to change the state of the system
ACSPH020 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Heating processes - Provided a substance does not change state, its temperature change is proportional to the amount of energy added to or removed from the substance; the constant of proportionality describes the heat capacity of the substance
ACSPH022 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Heating processes - Two systems in contact transfer energy between particles so that eventually the systems reach the same temperature; that is, they are in thermal equilibrium
