EQUILIBRIUM BOILING POINT APPARATUS MP1026

MP1026

Main characteristics of the bench

Boiling point cell made of borosilicate glass

 

PRINCIPLE AND OPERATION :

A liquid (X) is heated up to its boiling point in a micro-boiler; the producing vapours (Y) are in equilibrium with the liquid. At atmospheric pressure, a total condenser flows back the hot condensates into the boiler: The equilibrium between the boiling liquid and its vapour is perfect.

The boiling point cell is equivalent to one perfect theoretical stage; when the liquid – vapour equilibrium is maintained sample can be taken from the liquid and the gas phases using micro-syringes.

 

Teaching objectives

Determination of the equilibrium curves at atmospheric pressure.
