Designed to cool the vapors from a liquid sample that is being heated (distilled), and capture the condensation.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
Designed to cool the vapors from a liquid sample that is being heated (distilled), and capture the condensation. The clear plastic top of the Condenser has a small opening in the center to hold a temperature sensor or other temperature sensing device. The hole can be plugged with a small rubber stopper (included) The bottom reservoir of the Condenser has a mark to indicate that the volume of condensate has reached 10 milliliters (mL). The bottom also has a spout to use when pouring the collected liquid out of the Condenser. The PS-3402 Condenser can be mounted on a support rod up to 12.5 millimeters (mm) in diameter.
The clear polycarbonate top holds ice and allows for re-condensation. Designed to hold temp sensor in a center top port. The black 30% glass filled nylon bottom reservoir is designed to collect 10 mL of re-condensed distillate. It fits over a 150 mL beaker to hold initial sample.
Note: Keep the Condenser approximately 3" or more above the surface of the hot plate in order to maintain full integrity of the plastic.

Students use a condenser to extract an aromatic distillate from a spice sample.
Students must engineer a system to purify water that contains macroscopic and microscopic contaminants and evaluate the effectiveness of their design using a condenser, turbidity sensor, conductivity sensor, and qualitative observations.
Students use a turbidity sensor, a conductivity sensor, and a condenser to explore how energy drives the movement and purification of water through Earth’s systems.
