stopcock grease
    #3667691 - 01/23/05 02:30 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

so afoaf is using a new sepritory funnel for an acid/base extraction. the valve is glass on glass, and came with the instructions to apply "stopcock grease sparingly before use". sure enough, when tested without any grease, the valve had a very slow drip. is anyone familer with stopcock grease, and are there possible substitutes for it?

Yeah, vasoline (petroleum jelly) will work just fine.

yes vasoline might work.

however stop cock grease is usually silicon based, not petroleum based.

also the silicon is a 'cleaner' more refined, specifically made for this purpose.

and when turning the silicon will not tend to get sticky or more viscus, but the vasoline might.
i would go ahead a get the few dollar tube of silicon based grease. i mean if your friend has gone to the trouble of doing extractions why not do each part correctly. cheap gets cheap.

i worked with glass and if we could have used vasoline we would have! cause my boss was the cheapest fuck ever! and we bought the stopcock grease! and a small tube will last a lifetime.

will that make the funnel drip faster though? or does it just make a seal between the glass?

it's just for the seal and the mobility of the valve. can't speed up gravity.
and when they say use a small amount of grease they mean about a 'pea' sized squeeze, for a two inch valve, give or take. you just want a thin even coat, you don't need to see the grease thick on the stop. then put it into it's valve and give it a few even slow turn to get the valve all lubed up. less is more. if you use too much wipe it off and try again.
