Components of Bottle Top Dispenser
Bottle top dispensers are a significant instrument used to avoid accidental spilling that reduces the risk of hazardous chemicals. These generally come with adapters that allow easy and comfortable placement. Here are the major components of a bottle top dispenser:
The piston can be described as the heart of the bottle top dispenser, which produces the right amount of vacuum in the barrel for easy dispensing of liquids. A considerable amount of liquid gets collected through the upward piston movements in the dispenser cylinder. On the other hand, the downward movement promotes the easy release of liquid in the container through the dispensing valve.
- Glass barrel
Another major component of a bottle top dispenser is the glass barrel responsible for holding the required amount of reagent in the instrument itself. If the piston is pulled upwards, the liquid gets collected into the glass barrel. If the piston is pulled downwards, the liquid exits from the barrel through a tube.
- Volume adjustment knob
Adjusting the volume is one of the most crucial parts of using any bottle-top dispenser. The volume adjustment knob is used for setting the target volume where the user wants to dispense. It includes a pointer with all the points printed on a volume scale. To set the volume, rotate the knob in the anticlockwise direction and vice-versa.
- Dispensing nozzle
Another major component of bottle-top dispensers is the dispensing nozzle. It is used for dispensing the liquid in the receiving bowl safely. In the case of our bottle-top dispensers, the dispensing nozzle is extremely flexible, making it easier to transfer the liquid directly.
- Nozzle cap
The nozzle cap is another significant component that prevents drops from spilling at the workplace. As a result, it prevents direct contact with the chemicals in laboratories.
- Inlet tube
The next on the list is the inlet tube used to draw the liquid from the reagent bottle. This tube is telescopic in length and nature. Also, it can be adjusted easily according to the number of reagent bottle sizes.
- Bottle adapter
The bottle top dispenser’s last but most important component is the bottle adapter, which is used for mounting bottle top dispensers such as LentusTM on the regent bottles of a number of sizes. These are provided with a complete set of five adapters. These include 28 mm, 32 mm, 38 mm, 40 mm and 45 mm. It ensures easy usage with all reagent bottles.
