This Hexagonal Glass Alcohol Burner Lamp is very similar to our round Glass Alcohol Burner Lamp. The main difference is that the angular shape allows this burner to be used while tilted. This alcohol burner is made of molded soda glass with tightly fitting sealed brass cap. Alcohol is poured by removing the threaded brass wick holder. This high quality burner is equipped with a metal cap for easy extinguishing of the flame and to prevent evaporation of the alcohol. The Alcohol Burner is suitable for student use and is a great alternative to the traditional Bunsen burners that require propane gas. This burner is perfect for the home or professional laboratory.
