Cool-It - the unbreakable dewar

Cool-It replaces fragile glass dewars, unstable plastic bowls and keeps your chemistry colder for longer. The compact and virtually unbreakable Cool-It insulated bowls are designed to fit onto a standard stirring hotplate to cool and stir round bottom flasks, beakers or test tubes.

  • Cool-It keeps it cooler for longer

    Cool-It will keep your sample below -70°C for up to 5 times longer than a plastic bowl. Cool-It will keep your reactions below -70°C for twice as long as a glass dewar.

  • Large and small bowl options

    Small Cool-It bowl for flasks up to 400ml. Large Cool-It bowl for flasks up to 2 L.

Cool-it with flask group

Unbreakable

Cool-It bowls are manufactured from a robust, chemically-resistant HDPE casing encapsulating a high quality insulated foam core. This combination of tough composite materials provides excellent insulation and (unlike fragile glass dewars) is virtually unbreakable.

Cool-it Hood

Optional lid increases cooling time by 20%

The two piece lid will help to keep your reaction cool for up to 20% longer, minimising condensation and ice formation on your flask (maintaining visibility of the contents) and prevents spitting from the cooling mixture.
