Spiral Condenser with Sockets
A Spiral Condenser (Graham condenser) is used to cool and condense a gas back to a liquid, often as part of the process of chemical distillation. The piece consists of a coiled glass tube through which the gas travels. The coil is surrounded by a jacket of water that helps to cool the gas. The main advantages of a spiral heat exchanger are its high overall heat transfer coefficient, compact size for a given heat exchange area.
Recommended for use with low viscosity distillation processes such as alcohol with best results when assembled in an vertical orientation.
The spiral condenser has ground glassware connection joint and glass coolant connector. Made of high quality, heavy duty Borosilicate 3.3 Glass.
