Magnetic stirrer and Magnetic stir bar

 A Magnetic stirrer (magnetic mixer or magnetic stirring apparatus) is a laboratory equipment that employs a rotating magnetic field to cause a magnetic stir bar (also called "flea") immersed in a liquid to spin very quickly, thus stirring it. The rotating field may be created a special equipment called Magnetic stirring apparatus(below)

Magnetic stirrers(magnetic mixer or magnetic stirring apparatus) are often used in chemistry and biology, where they can be used inside hermetically closed vessels or systems, without the need for complicated rotary seals. They are preferred over gear-driven motorized stirrers because they are quieter, more efficient, and have no moving external parts to break or wear out (other than the simple bar magnet itself).

 

 

Magnetic stir bars work well in lab glassware (beaker, flaks) commonly used for chemical reactions, as glass does not appreciably affect a magnetic field. Magnetic stir bar is commonly covered by PTFE, which make it resistant to chemical attack and less resistance from glass vessel when working in the liquid.

Three major kinds of Magnetic stir bars


1, 
Magnetic stir bar mode A--Shuttle shape

Magnetic stir bar


2,
Magnetic stir bar mode B--Bar shape with embossment in the middle

3,
Magnetic stir bar mode C--Bar shape
