Water Bath Ball Covers support the samples without blocks, racks, floats or weights.

Benefits of Water Bath Ball Covers:

  • Reduces evaporation by 90% and always stays filled
  • Reduces potential fire hazard from water boiling off
  • Thermal insulator reduces energy consumption
  • Compatible with earth-friendly disinfectants
  • No need for racks or floats to organize vessels
  • No need for Bottle-neck weights to hold bottles down

Technical Data:

Ball Diameter and Surface Coverage

The percentage of area covered by the balls is independent of the ball diameter, being the ratio of a circle to the hexagon which surrounds it. This equates to 91% of the liquid surface area. The frictional contact points ensure that each ball remains stable when subjected to increased liquid or air turbulence.
