The Bel-Art Scienceware F377900000 magnetic stir bar garage is an epoxy-coated wire rack that organizes magnetic stir bars and accessories and helps prevent them from becoming demagnetized. The garage accommodates stir bars between 6" (159 cm) and 0.5" (10 mm) in length. It is coated with epoxy for wear resistance and quick cleaning. The garage can stand on a bench or other flat surface, or it can be mounted to a wall (mounting hardware not included). It measures 12.5625 x 10.5625 x 4.0" (31 x 25.6 x 10 cm) (H x W x D, where H is the height, the vertical distance from top to bottom; W is the width, the horizontal distance from left to right; and D is the depth, the distance from front to back).
Magnetic stir bars (sometimes called stirring bars, spin bars, or fleas) are used to stir a liquid or solution in biological, chemical, medical, and research laboratory applications. The stir bar is placed inside a container of liquid or solution that is seated on a magnetic stirrer (also called a magnetic mixer), which is a laboratory device that creates a rotating magnetic field using a rotating magnet or multiple stationary electromagnets. The rotating magnetic field causes the bar to spin, which stirs the liquid or solution. Stirring bars are offered in a variety of sizes and shapes, and they are encased in materials such as glass or plastic to help prevent contamination of the liquid or solution, to reduce friction, and to provide resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and heat. The bar may have a pivot ring or pivot point to minimize contact with the container, reduce friction, and improve its spinning. The size and shape of the container and the volume and viscosity of the liquid or solution to be stirred determine which stir bar shape, size, and casing will suit a particular application.
