A flask stand, PP (polypropylene) is a laboratory equipment used to support and hold laboratory flasks in a vertical position. It is made of polypropylene, a type of plastic that is known for its durability, chemical resistance, and low cost. The flask stand typically consists of a base with several arms that hold the flask in place, allowing the contents of the flask to be easily observed or manipulated.
Flask stands are commonly used in laboratory settings for a variety of applications, including holding flasks for storage, mixing, or reaction, or for holding flasks during distillation or filtration. They are available in various sizes, ranging from small stands for small-scale experiments to large stands for large-scale operations. The polypropylene construction makes the flask stand suitable for use in applications where glass is not appropriate, such as with light-sensitive materials or when working with hazardous chemicals. Flask stands are also easy to clean and can be used repeatedly, making them a popular choice for laboratory use.
