Heating mantles are the most common method for heating reaction vessels in the laboratory. For more about the practical aspects of these devices, see the Heating Sources Page of our Glassware Gallery.
All heating mantles and tapes must be operated through a power control. These are not designed to be plugged directly into an electrical outlet. Chemical spillage, overheating, overloading, and general misuse will greatly reduce the service life of these items.
The following are some random examples of heating mantles and tapes that we carry. Please browse from the list on the left below to see a complete listing by category.
