Schott produces a truly comprehensive range of laboratory glassware, including products which are designed for vacuum work and filtration applications. The company’s range of glassware for the lab includes filter crucibles, glass funnels, gas washing lab bottles, glass desiccator products, volumetric glassware, filtering lab flask products and Buchner funnels among other products.
Schott glassware intended for vacuum work and filtration, such as filter bottles and flasks are available in sizes of as small as 100 milliliters to as large as 20 liters. Standard fittings for these and other product lines in the Schott lab glassware range include side arms which extend the functionality of the products and lend them to use in a wider variety of applications. There are bottles and flasks available with integrated outlets as well as models which feature plastic fittings which allow the laboratory glassware to be connected to or disconnected from vacuum tubing and pumps quickly and easily.
Most Schott glass products are manufactured from DURAN, a borosilicate glass created by the Schott company which has now become the industry standard for lab glassware. Schott DURAN glass is used in many of the company’s Erlenmeyer flasks, beakers, test tubes, boiling flasks and distillation flasks as well as many other pieces of laboratory glassware.
Other than DURAN, Schott glassware materials include FIOLAX 4.9 expansion borosilicate glass. This chemically resistant neutral glass is used for optically controlled tubing and test tubes in the Schott laboratory glassware range. AR-Glas, a soda lime glass is another innovation from Schott; this glass features a high alkali and alkaline earth oxide content and is used for glassware in the medical, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.
From glassware for filtration and vacuum applications to glassware for the microbiology laboratory, volumetric flasks, desiccators and virtually any and every other piece of laboratory glassware imaginable, Schott makes it all; which is why Schott is the name lab technicians and scientists think of when the topic of glassware comes to mind.
