Without stands, bossheads and clamps the daily lab routine can’t be imagined. Reliable stability given by bossheads and clamps is essential for secure and successful analyses: Burettes, flasks, columns or complete test apparatus are fixed with the aid of clamping and tensioning devices. Depending on your specific needs, various materials may be used: when lighter loads are employed, e.g. in schools, low-cost steel/cast iron variants are recommended. Stainless steel components offer best possible quality and durability and for those who focus on light weight, the aluminium versions are the best choice. The clamps of our assortment are either coated with cork, silicone or rubber to ensure perfect stability and ideal protection of sensitive surfaces for any applications.
Stands & Stand Components
Stand bases and frame rods
Stand bases, e.g. made of 18/10 stainless steel by Bochem, are available with expanded, flat and heavy feet for even more stability (one foot is adjustable). A frame rod with an external thread can be adjusted to a threaded hole in the middle of the front side with a M10 inside thread. The term thread refers to a shaped groove that spirals around a cylindrical object (inside or outside) in a helical line. The ‘groove’ is referred to as thread. Threads are standardized according to DIN and ISO norms to make sure components with internal and external threads match. Due to its specific characteristics regarding strength, corrosion behaviour, mouldability and welding capability, stainless steel is an ideal material for the production of stand bases.
Besides standard retort clamps you find a wide range of 3- and 4-prongs clamps, micro clamps, burette clamps, support rings, frame clamps etc. The lab aids are available in various materials and with different coatings. At the bottom of this page you find further information about materials and their specific characteristics and application areas.
