Hey all,

I just scored a VWR 1122S circulator off eBay and need to find a replacement power cord before I start using it. I believe this circulator is manufactured by Polyscience and modeled after their CLASSIC series.

Does anyone know what I should be looking for in a replacement power cord? I have one here that is marked 10A 125V that fits the circulator perfectly. Would this work?

by 'rating' that cord is a little on the 'lite' side.  the device probably draws 15 A

if you cant find a thicker cord, you can set it up w that cord and after 30 min or so see if the cord feels hot, or overly warm


that would tell you you might want to move up to a thicker cord.

From what I can find this circulator draws 11 amps, I wouldn't feel safe leaving it running unattended using a 10 amp cord.  In the picture I'm looking at the power connector looks like it's the same thing you would find on a computer power supply, if so this one is rated for 13 amps;




If you have a Microcenter in your area they would probably have something suitable in stock, look for a 16AWG cord or thicker.

I went ahead and ordered a replacement cord from Polyscience. For reference it is marked 13A 120V.
