Kimble® Kontes® TLC Reagent Sprayer with Screw Thread Standard Taper Joint
This TLC reagent sprayer with screw thread ground joints provides uniform spray mist of visualization reagents for TLC and paper chromatography. Used with all standard TLC reagents and most corrosive liquids. Liquid touches only nonreactive borosilicate glass atomizing sprayer head and flask. Sprayer head-to-flask connection consists of screw-thread standard taper ground joint, connecting cap, and loosening ring. If the joint ever "freezes" from reagent crystallization or residue formation, simply unscrew the connecting cap back onto the unique loosening ring and the joint will easily come apart. These sprayers will operate on as little as 1psi (0.07 kg/cm²) air pressure with optimal results at 3-5psi (0.21-0.35 kg/cm²). The connecting cap, loosening ring and O-ring should be removed before autoclaving.
