Beaker Tall Form
Beaker tall form is a container that is used in laboratories for the purpose of stirring, mixing and heating liquids. The distinguishing feature of a tall form beaker is it's height which is about twice the size of it's diameter. Apart from this, a beaker tall form shares the same physical characteristics like other beakers, namely a cylindrical shape, a flat bottom and a small spout that aids in pouring liquids.
These beakers are ideal for quantitative chemical analysis done for determining the unknown concentration of an analyte. This process is also known as titration or volumetric analysis. Generally constructed using boro silicate glass and in some cases polypropylene( plastic beakers), tall form beakers are sturdy and ergonomically designed to make these easier to handle. Furthermore, such beakers are long lasting and available at affordable rates.
Salient Features :
These have a heavy and uniform wall thickness.
Such beakers are ideal for tough handling conditions that includes mechanized washing.
These usually have a double graduated metric scale and a marking area.
Beaker tall form(glass made) can easily withstand high temperatures and also sudden temperature changes.
High resistance to neutral and acid solutions, chloride, bromide and concentrated acids ( only for tall form beakers made from glass).
Tall form beakers( polypropylene made) are highly flexible i.e- a spout can be created in any direction on the beaker with just a gentle squeeze.
Some Creative Uses of Tall Form Beakers
These can be used as wall pieces or even wall planters to enhance the overall look of homes, offices, clubs and many more.
Tall form beakers can also be imaginatively used as drinking glasses for consuming beverages.
Some decorative lightning systems can be inserted inside a beaker tall form for an uniquely attractive look.
The beakers can also be colorfully hand painted and put in living spaces as show pieces.
