Alchohol Lamp?
    #3186426 - 09/27/04 03:21 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I bought an Alcohol lamp to sterilize my syringe tips. I tried using some rubbing alch. but the whick would not stay lit. Am I a solution that is too diluted? How do I use this thing properly?

Yeah, I think it is. This stuff burns clean it has for lamps on it. I got the lamps from Myco Supply and just used what the directions said. Methylated Spirits are on there also now that I take the time to look.  :thumbup:

Found this..

Ethyl alcohol
Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, is produced by the fermentation of sugars, or from direct synthesis from ethylene.
Ethanol's formula is C2H5OH. Its boiling point is 78.5 deg C, and its melting point is -117.3 deg C.

Ethanol burns with a hot, pale-blue flame. It is miscible with water. Uses include consumption in alcoholic beverages, a solvent, an anti-freeze solution, and a fuel. Ethanol is used as an additive to car fuel and is burnt with liquid oxygen in some rocket engines. When Ethanol is burnt in air, the results of combustion are carbon dioxide and water.


Methyl alcohol
Methyl alcohol, or methanol, is also sometimes called wood spirit. It is produced by the destructive distillation of wood, or by a synthetic process which involves reacting carbon monoxide with hydrogen gas.
Methanol's formula is CH3OH. Its boiling point is 64.6 deg C, and its melting point is -97 deg C.

Methanol burns with a pale, non-luminous flame. It is poisonous and, if consumed, causes blindness, insanity, and eventual death. It is commonly used as a denaturant for ethyl alcohol, and is miscible with water.

Names for methylated spirits around the world
In the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, metho is called methylated spirits. In the US it is called denatured alcohol. In Europe, it may be called spirits, brennspiritus (Germany), alcool a bruler (France), sprit (Norway), spiritus (Netherlands), alcool etilico denaturato (Italy). It is generally available in hardware stores, supermarkets, service stations, and camping/outdoors stores.

On the left ethanol, on the right propanol(do NOT use this).



And this is methanol, it has the cleanest flame:

Very interesting illustration, Anno! Thanks.

I actually didn't flame sterilize my needle, I just used an alcohol wipe.. maybe that's playing with fire.. no pun intended. :wink:

My 12 jars are colonizing well, but maybe I'll break out the alcohol lamp.. I have one around here somewhere from an old chemistry kit.
