A virtually unbreakable NMR tube Cleaner *
Over the years we received in our glass-blowing shop countless NMR tube cleaners for repair from  laboratories or research centers,  in most cases the very small inner glass tube had been sheared off the wall. The students or lab technician break them so often probably due to the design of these conventional NMR tube cleaners. Quite often these NMR tube cleaners are not even repairable or it would  be too expansive to do so. Eventually we began to experiment with new models to see how it would be possible to make them less breakable. After many experiments, and many different designs we came up with a new model almost entirely constructed of Teflon® and stainless steel tubing, the only part made of glass is a standard   ground joint 14/20 outer member that can be easily replaced . The final design operates in a radically different way from the conventional one. (First demonstrated during American Scientific Glassblower Society annual symposium in Pointe Clear, Alabama, USA. Winner of the: Andrews Glass Company Award for best technical presentation, 2002) Instead of forcing  the solvent up into an NMR tube to dislodge the waste chemicals  our design first sucks up the waste chemicals with vacuum then brings up clean solvent into the NMR  tube to rince it. From the many research laboratories who have purchased and used our NMR tube cleaner it looks like our design is much more efficient and it requires even less solvents to clean up the tubes.

Vacuum technology for the laboratory
Rotavap traps Available in 3 standard sizes, 100ml, 250ml, 500ml Bottom inner member joint choice: 14/20, 19/26, 24/40 (Blown on the lathe using stainless steel and ceramic jigs, they run very true)
Evaporator bum trap.
Special Rotavap trap This modified Rotavap trap, has been fitted with a glass fritted disk, it will minimize “bumping” when evacuating difficult samples. Powder would stay on disk for simpler picking-up or cleaning-up.
Bump trap fitted with fritted disk to minimize bumping.
Vial adaptor Evaporate directly from a vial, will save time and material. Available for Vials: 4 ml to 40 ml.  Vial fits directly inside glass joint, no O-Ring or polymer materials needed.
Vial holder for bump trap.

01235 - Distilling Head, Solvent  A very simple and safe way to purify or keep your solvents dry. This distilling head can be left unattended safely, it will not overflow due to two large openings on the top of the centre tube. Vapours will travel inside the central duct up to a condenser and return to the boiling flask for refluxing or to accumulate in the flask up to the level of the draining hole. A 3 way Teflon stopcock will enable refluxing, storing or draining the accumulated solvent to an external flask, the operation can  be done while being kept under inert gas via the side port on the take out joint. The upper part of the flask is fitted with a 4mm Teflon stopcock terminated by a 14/20 outer member standard taper joint. Small quantities of solvent can be removed with a hypodermic needle thru a septum attached to the 14/20. joint. A glass rod links the body to the take out side joint to increase the  strength. Flask will store about 2/3 of the rated volume. Available in 500ml, 1000ml, 2000ml, 3000ml and 5000ml. Designed by Mr. Kopp, Glass-blower at McGill University, used extensively in many research labs.

Over the years we have developed what we think is one of the most practical   Schlenk line, a totally grease-less vacuum manifold to perform reactions or manipulate air sensitive compounds in an inert atmosphere. On these vacuum lines each pair of stopcocks is welded to the line at a   60 degrees  angle which greatly facilitates viewing the movement of the plug and is much more ergonomic for the user (For left handed person the stopcocks can we welded in a reverse position) The stopcocks pairs are fitted with a quick connect plastic assembly, which makes disconnecting the rubber hoses connected to them safer, (If desired the pairs can be finished with a simple glass rubber connection or welded to a standard  inner glass taper joint 24/40 or other sizes on demand) The above model has been design, when fitted with 5 pairs of stopcocks and a vacuum head, to fit into a standart fume hood. The ends of the vacuum lines are finished with a polished outer ball joint 28/15 to connect via an inner ball joint with O-Ring  to the vacuum head. The vacuum head can be connected to either end of the manifold to simplify installation. For a matching vacuum head, fitted with grease-less vacuum trap (connection to vacuum pump 3/4” tubing), follow this link. Vacuum head Those vacuum manifolds are custom built to your specifications  with 3, 4, 5 or more pairs of stopcocks. Or built with an other configuration or different fittings. For prices or other models, please contact us. E-mail or call, .

GLASS Man made glass has been used for many thousands of years, the first known glass makers being the Egyptians. The glasses used throughout the ages have changed very little in their chemical composition, to the extent that, today, the basic materials are still identical with those used to produced glass hundreds and even thousands of years ago. An interesting and provocative definition of glass is by Morey: Glass is an inorganic substance in a condition which is continuous with, and analogous to, the liquid state of the substance, but which, as the result has been cooled from a fused condition, has attained so high a degree of Viscosity as to be for all practical purposes; rigid. Glass is a non crystalline material produced primarily from inorganic oxides. The principal constituent of most glass is sand, or silica. Since the silica cannot be melted readily, various fluxes are adapted to lower the fusion point of the mixture. Other common glass formers are oxides of boron and phosphorus. Other oxides in glass act as modifiers on the glassy network. STRENGTH As an engineering material, glass is unique. Two of the most significant properties that make it so, are (1) the mechanical strength, and (2) viscosity. Glass is a brittle material but one that is truly elastic with no plastic deformation to failure. The intrinsic strength of glass is extremely high and certain experiments have substantiated that glass may be stressed in the order of 3,000,000 PSI before failure. However, it is difficult to achieve, in current practice, more than a small fraction of these strengths. Measurements of the strength of glass are not true measurements of the strength, but the weakness of the surface. It is the condition of the surface that limits our utilization of this high strength material. The surface irregularities create stress risers, and, as a result, surface stress variations, and by the virtue of the lack of plasticity, these stresses are not relieved by plastic deformation and will generate a catastrophic type of failure by virtue of a crack. In other words, it is extremely notch sensitive. VISCOSITY Actually, at room temperature, glass is a viscous material. At this temperature, however, the viscosity is so high that for all practical purposes, it is considered a solid. The fantastic reduction in viscosity between 500°C and room temperature is significant; however, the difference between 500°C and 1500°C will be approximately 1,000,000,000,000 times as great. It should be pointed out that glasses do not have true melting points. They simply become less viscous at elevated temperatures, and the viscosity reduction is approximately exponential with temperature. THERMAL ENDURANCE One other notable property of glass is its relatively high thermal endurance. The thermal endurance is enhanced when under compressive stress.
ELASTICITY For all ordinary purposes, it can be assumed that glass is perfectly elastic up to the point of fracture. The Young's modulus of elasticity varies from 6,000,000 to 17,000,000 PSI depending on the composition, but most commercial glasses have values between 9,000,000 and 12,000,000 PSI. ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES One of the primary values of glass in electrical applications is its property of electrical insulation. The resistance glass offers to the passage of electricity depends on the type of glass, the temperature of the glass and the surface conditions. On the other hand, glass can be given a metallic oxide coating that conducts electricity. DIELECTRIC STRENGTH The dielectric strength of glass is very high. Thus, in hermetic connector applications, the prime design consideration is to provide sufficient distance over the glass to prevent flashover. Dielectric breakdown voltage decreases with an increase in frequency and temperatures. At elevated temperatures, breakdown is governed mainly by the resistivity of the glass at those temperatures. VOLUME RESISTIVITY Volume resistivity of glass at ordinary room temperature varies widely with the composition from as low as 108 to as high as 1019 ohm centimeters. The resistivity of a given composition at a fixed temperature may vary by a factor of 3, depending upon the degree of annealing or strain that the glass has received. Strained glass has lower resistance than properly annealed glass, which is practically strain-free. SURFACE RESISTIVITY Surface electrical resistivity is of primary importance in all electrical insulation problems with glasses or ceramics since it greatly affects performance under service conditions that involve high humidity. Due to their absorption of a moisture film, the surface electrical resistivity of glasses and ceramics, while high in comparison to that of many other materials, is remarkably lower than volume resistivity. Thus chemical durability is an essential requirement in good electrical glass because film thickness and film conductivity both are increased by the soluble products of unstable glass compositions. GLASS IN COMPRESSION As previously mentioned, glass has a very high capacity to withstand compression stresses. By virtue of inducing and maintaining only compression stresses in the glass, the glass member can be loaded in many ways; as long as the imposed loading does not exceed the compressive preload, the glass will withstand the applied preload without a stress reversal and not generate tensile stresses where its notch sensitivity would limit its usefulness.
