The Paraffin Wax Dispenser heats wax to a liquid state and provides convenient "wax on tap" for histology and pathology laboratories. The Paraffin Wax Dispenser has a 4.5 litre capacity to ensure an ample supply of wax on tap. It is intended to be used solely for paraffin wax with a melting range from 45°C to 65°C inclusive.
An excellent feature is that the wax dispenser tap is kept heated to ensure that the wax always remains flowing and on tap. The dispenser tap is heated by an independent temperature-controlled element mounted inside it, which prevents the wax from cooling down, solidifying and blocking the tap. The tap is a non-drip swivel lever and has a replaceable filter. There is a mains power On/Off switch, with 4 additional neon lights to indicate:
The bath heater rotary control dial has a graded temperature scale, and the temperature of the paraffin wax dispenser is controlled by a built-in thermostat controlling the temperature from ambient to 75°C. The tap has its own tap heater adjustment control.
If an over-temperature condition occurs, a "Wax Bath Over Temperature" red neon will illuminate and the heater control for the bath will automatically turn off at 105°C. For added safety, a non-resettable thermal fuse has also been included.
The Paraffin Wax Dispenser has a black PTFE-coated aluminium interior, a powder-coated black and white aluminium exterior and a durable black metal lid. It is virtually maintenance-free and extremely easy to clean.
