AstorShake - Digital shaking waterbath


The shaking waterbath for the best analysis of hard cheeses with Gerber method 

AstorShake Shaking Waterbath for Gerber method

AstorShake shaking waterbath can keep up to 24 butyrometers under constant agitation at the most suitable temperature value to dissolve the hardest cheeses, quickly and accurately. It is a "must-have" equipment for the application of Gerber method to aged cheeses and hard samples in general. AstorShake has a very high stainless steel tank, so that butyrometers can be kept below the water level up to their scale.

Its stainless steel lid with high shape reduces the evaporation of hot water and, as a consequence, the increase of the humidity level in the laboratory.
