Kipp’s Apparatus, PP

It has three main portions. The top portion is fitted with a thistle funnel and a bulb structure through which dilute acid can be poured which reacts with a metal sulphide in the base of the Apparatus. H S gas then evolved 2 collects in the middle dome from where it can be released through a leakproof stopcock fitted with a self lubricating PTFE plug.

Kipp’s apparatus, also known as a Kipp generator, is a type of laboratory apparatus used for the preparation of hydrogen gas. It consists of a container filled with a strong alkali solution, such as sodium hydroxide, and a gas-tight cylinder connected to the container by a glass tube.

PP Kipp’s apparatus refers to a Kipp generator made of polypropylene (PP) material. PP is a commonly used material in laboratory equipment due to its durability, chemical resistance, and affordability.

In operation, the cylinder is filled with an acid, such as sulfuric acid, and the alkali solution is added to the container. The reaction between the acid and alkali produces hydrogen gas, which is expelled into the cylinder. The Kipp generator can be used for a variety of applications, including the preparation of hydrogen gas for use in fuel cells and other applications.
