A Kjeldahl flask is an essential piece of distilling glassware, but don’t purchase one just anywhere! The experts at Macalaster Bicknell Company of New Jersey have been in the business of supplying high-tech glass products for nearly 70 years. Our experienced professionals and low-price guarantee means that Mac Bic is committed to providing our customers with the best value possible on laboratory glassware.
The main function of a Kjeldahl flask is to aid in distilling chemical solutions in a laboratory. These flasks often feature one narrow neck made of ground glass. The design of the spherical or pear-shaped base allows for more even heating during distillation. Although distillation flasks come in various shapes, the Kjeldahl flask is most often pear-shaped with a short neck. In addition to distilling liquids, a Kjeldahl flask also allows for the reception of distilled solutions.
Mac Bic is stocked with Pyrex brand 5000 mL Kjeldahl flask blanks. One order includes 60 flasks. These flask blanks do not feature gradual volumetric measurements on the side of the glass. The narrow neck and wide mouth is meant to accommodate standard stands and clamps.
