Altay mobile lab
All you need for physics, chemistry and biology experiments
in a compact and mobile cart
This is a stand alone system designed for 11-15 years old students and particularly useful for all those educational environments lacking equipped science classrooms.
The cart is completely mobile and has 5 storage drawers, protecting your equipment in shock-free, moulded sponge pods.
The drawers pull all of the way out providing safe yet easily accessible storage of your valuable equipment.
All equipment are organized by scientific discipline for quick and easy set-up and equipment control.
Do all of your science experiments on the acid resistant work surface.
The Altay Mobile Science Laboratory is designed for easy access to water, gas and electricity.
It is ideal for all teaching environments and its modular design guarantees flexibility and adaptability for all of your science experiments.
Altay's MOBILE LAB® cart comes with a universal power supply equipped to operate with any user voltage – just connect the cart to an electrical outlet, flip the switch and you are ready to go.
Structure and materials of the cart
The main structure of our MOBILE LAB® is made of sturdy, acid-resistant aluminium, while the front, back and side panels of the cart are made in mild steel oven-painted by using special coat resistant to chemicals, scratches and fire. The top and the cover sink are made in chemical resistant HPL The sink is acid-resistant polypropylene (approx. height/depth/width 15x30x20 cm), the water tap is in stainless steel and folds down if necessary.
There are 2 tanks made of acid-resistant polyethylene, each with a capacity of 10 litres.
One pumps clean water to the tabletop tap; the other works as sewage system and is connected to the sink drain.
One portable powder extinguisher (1 kg)
One first-aid kit
Three locking systems (left and right doors plus drawers)
Gas/SPIRIT supply system
The Laboratory is also provided with two burners: one supplied by a 240g GPL cylinder and one spirit burner
Control & electric panel

2. One green LED when main power supply is on
3. One yellow LED when optional power supply is on
4. One water pump button with LED
5. One switching-mode power supply with the following characteristics:
Output voltage range: 0 – 12 Vdc
Output current range: 0 – 8 A
One digital voltmeter and one digital ammeter
Max power: 100 W
Short circuit and overload protection
6. One 110/125 VAC socket; 50/60 Hz
7. Two 220/240 VAC socket; 50/60 Hz
8. Additional sockets are included in the back panel of the cart
High quality wheels
The mobile cart uses zinc plated pressed steel wheels, two with breaks, dia. 12.5 cm maximum static load 150 Kg each, ( 600 kg total).
Power cord system
The cart is provided with a 6 meter re-winding power cord to allow easy access to the nearest electrical source.
The MOBILE LAB® is supplied with
