Description

Test Tube With Rim 24X150 (PYREX) – Boiling Tube

This is a test tube with a rim made from PYREX® (borosilicate glass), also known as a boiling tube, is a common piece of laboratory glassware designed for various tasks, particularly those involving heating liquids.

Description:

  • Material: PYREX® is a brand name for borosilicate glass, a type of glass known for its resistance to heat, chemicals, and scratches. This makes it suitable for laboratory applications.
  • Dimensions: These tubes typically have a diameter of 24 mm and a length of 150 mm, although the size can vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Rim: The key feature that distinguishes it from a regular test tube is the presence of a reinforced rim at the opening. This rim provides a lip for pouring or holding the boiling tube, improving handling and reducing the risk of spills, especially when working with hot liquids.

Components:

  • Main Body: The main body is a cylindrical glass tube that holds the liquid or solution being used in the experiment.
  • Rim: As mentioned earlier, the rim is a reinforced edge at the opening of the test tube.
  • Base (optional): Some boiling tubes may have a flat or rounded base for stability, but this is not always the case.

Uses:

Boiling tubes are versatile tools in the laboratory and are used for various purposes, especially those involving heating liquids. Here are some common applications:

  • Heating Liquids: As the name suggests, boiling tubes are ideal for heating liquids to boiling or near boiling temperatures. The borosilicate glass can withstand higher temperatures than regular glass, reducing the risk of breakage.
  • Mixing Chemicals: They can be used for mixing chemicals or preparing solutions. The rim allows for easier stirring and manipulation of the contents without spilling.
  • Holding Solutions: Boiling tubes can hold and store solutions during experiments.
  • Decanting Liquids: The rim facilitates the pouring of liquids from the boiling tube into other containers.
  • Centrifugation (depending on design): Some boiling tubes are designed with a thicker wall to withstand the high forces involved in centrifugation. These can be used to separate mixtures or isolate precipitates.

Safety Note:

  • Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, safety glasses, and a lab coat when working with chemicals and glassware in a laboratory setting.
  • Use caution when heating liquids in a boiling tube. Never heat a boiling tube that is completely filled with liquid, as the expanding liquid can cause the tube to crack or explode.
  • Boiling tubes can become hot during use. Handle them with heat-resistant gloves or use tongs to avoid burns.
