A container with water is usually heated from the bottom. Due to its smaller density, the warmer water rises to the top creating a thermal current which steadily heats up the total amount of water.

To demonstrate the thermal conduction, the heating current has to be eliminated. Therefore, an only the water surface is heated while measuring the water temperature in the top and bottom of the container.


  • Optimised for demonstration experiments: Transformation from horizontal into vertical direction
  • Demonstrative measurement value indication using Cobra4 MobileLink2 with large-scale display
  • Secure fastening of burners and hot vessels
  • Glass equipment, liquid levels and flowing liquids can be observed easily on the plain background
