Different Types of Chemistry Lab Equipment & Their Uses (Part I)

chemistry

Chemistry is a field filled with equipment. If you are going to perform any meaningful experiments in a chemistry lab, you are going to need at least a basic collection of pieces of laboratory equipment. Some experiments call for only the basics, while others will require the use of complex, expensive pieces. In this article – the first of a two-part series – we are going to take a look at some of the basic items which are typically found in a chemistry lab.

Their historic popularity stemmed mainly from their low purchase price. But a closer look at the performance, environmental impact, and lifetime cost of a water aspirator may help convince aspirator devotees that it’s time to switch to a vacuum pump.
