Porcelain Combustion Boats

Home > Laboratory Porcelainware > Porcelain Combustion Boats

Porcelain Combustion Boats are used in laboratories for chemical analysis. The shape of this equipment is very much similar to a boat with a projection at one end containing a hole. The size of porcelain combustion boats may vary depending on the type of application requirements in chemistry laboratories. Smallest combustion boats are used in microanalyses.

The surface of porcelain combustion boats are glazed all over with the exception of outside bottom. The bottom of a combustion boat is generally flat that allows it to firmly placed on a planar surface. During analytical process, the weight of porcelain helps it to remain steady throughout and thereby, avoiding unwanted spillage of chemicals. Also, porcelain is highly resistant to heat that provides it immunity from cracks or deformation.
