Melting Point Apparatus

Models SMP40, SMP30, SMP11 and SMP10


The SMP40 accurately identifies the melting point of up to three samples simultaneously using a digital camera to identify the smallest of changes within the sample, allowing accurate and reliable automatic identification of the melting point of your material.

Split Design Concept

The SMP40 automatic melting point is the first melting point to utilize a split concept. The control side can be separated from the sample side, allowing maximum footprint flexibility. The sample side can be located at the back of the bench or in a fume cupboard (if required) to give more space. The control side can also be used in two orientations: landscape or portrait. This allows for a more comfortable viewing angle, whether you are standing or sitting at the bench. The control side automatically detects which orientation it is in and flips the screen to always be the right way up.


The SMP30 replaces the SMP3 with many improvements and novel features, many of which are patented, like the unique head up display that allows the user to see a display of the block temperature through the sample viewfinder. While performing a manual melting point, it is natural to glance at the temperature of the block to see when the melt should occur. Unfortunately this means taking your eye off the sample, and you risk missing the start of the melt. But with the SMP30's unique patented 'head up display', a temperature display is housed within the eyepiece, so you can see the sample tubes and temperature simultaneously, eliminating the need to refocus your eye. The position of the display in your eyeline can be adjusted or even switched off if you would prefer not to use this feature.


The SMP10 is a digital unit with 1°C resolution, making it ideal for quality control purposes. The simple-to-follow instructions are printed directly on the instrument in most European languages for ease of use. To operate, simply select a plateau temperature via the three digit display and press 'start'. The unit quickly heats up and remains at the selected plateau temperature until the user is ready to start the test. Insert the sample tubes and press 'start'. The unit then heats slowly so that the melt can be observed. When the sample is seen to melt, note the temperature on the display. Press 'stop' to end heating and cool the block.


Up to three samples can be viewed and tested at any one time. Samples are illuminated by a bright white LED and viewed via a magnifying lens. The magnifying lens can be detached for cleaning, using the simple-to-follow instructions printed on the instrument.
