About Lab Burners
The Bunsen burner today is a critical tool in modern chemistry labs. It can burn a variety of fuels while producing a single clean hot flame. It features one valve for gas intake, and a needle valve for precise control of the amount of oxygen that gets mixed with the fuel. Anyone using a Bunsen burner can turn a needle valve to change the temperature and color of the flame. A bright yellow flame is produced when there is very little oxygen available, while the hottest flame is small and blue. Those who work in labs and with Bunsen burners appreciate that it provides a very stable source of heat for causing chemical reactions, heating chemicals, starting combustion, sterilizing tools, and more, all in the name of science. While Bunsen burners are critical components of today's modern labs, equally helpful in the lab environment is Zoro's selection of scientific equipment, including beakers, flasks, and more.
