Can I use a Carousel 6 Plus azeotropic (Dean-Stark) flask in Tornado Plus?

Yes, you can use an azeotropic (Dean-Stark) flask with Tornado.

Please note, it must be a Tornado azeotropic flask, as these have a wider neck than the standard azeotropic flasks to allow a stirrer shaft to fit through:

  • RR99939: 100 ml Tornado Azeotropic Reaction Flask (Pack of 3)
  • RR99938: 250 ml Tornado Azeotropic Reaction Flask (Pack of 3)

Furthermore, only the collapsible centrifugal stirrers will fit.  Anchor and propeller stirrers are too large to fit through the neck into the flask.

  • RR99240: Centrifugal PTFE Stirrer Paddle (Pack of 6)
  • RR99241: Centrifugal PTFE Stirrer Paddle (Pack of 1)
