Lab Equipment Notes IPC Unit 1
Beaker Used to hold and heat liquids. Multipurpose and essential in the lab.
Test Tube Brushes Used to easily clean the inside of a test tubes and other glassware.
Bunsen Burner Used for heating and exposing items to flame
Crucible with Lid Used to heat small quantities to very high temperatures.
Crucible Tong Used to hold crucibles and evaporating dishes when they are hot.
Disposable Pipette Used for moving small amounts of liquid from place to place. They are usually made of plastic and are disposable
Electronic Balance Used for weighing substances or objects, usually in grams.
Erlenmeyer Flask Used to heat, mix, and store liquids. The advantage to the Erlenmeyer Flask is that the bottom is wider than the top It will heat quicker because of the greater surface area exposed to the heat.
Evaporating Dish Used to recover dissolved solids by evaporation
Florence Flask Used for heating substances that need to be heated evenly. The bulbed bottom allows the heat to distribute through the liquid more evenly. Mostly used in distillation experiments.
Forceps Used for picking up and moving small objects.
Graduated Cylinder Used to measure the volumes of liquids
Hot Plate Used for heating substances and liquids in beakers and flasks.
Mortar & Pestle Used to crush solids into powders for experiments, usually to better dissolve the solids.
Ring Clamp Attached to ring stand and with wire gauze used to hold beakers or flasks while they are heated by a gas burner.
Ring Stand Used to hold items being heated. Clamps or rings can be used so that items may be placed above the lab table for heating by Bunsen burners or other items.
Scoopula For scooping out small or large amounts of chemicals from bottles, etc.
Spatula Used for moving small amounts of solid from place to place.
Striker Used to light a gas burner
Test Tube Used for storing, mixing, and heating small amounts of chemicals.
Test Tube Holder Used to hold test tubes while heating.
Test Tube Rack Used to hold test tubes while reactions happen in them or while they are not needed.
Thermometer Used to take temperature of solids, liquids, and gases. They are usually in o C, but can also be in o F.
Triple Beam Balance used to measure masses very precisely
Utility Clamp Used to attach test tubes and other glassware to ring stand
Wash Bottle Used to wash or rinse other containers
Weigh Boat Used for weighing solids on a balance.
Wire Gauze Used to support other glassware over, for ex. a Bunsen burner
