BS EN ISO 24450 pdf download Laboratory glassware — Wide-necked boiling flasks
This International Standard specifies requirements and dimensions for an internationally acceptable series ofconical flasks and of flat-bottom and round-bottom flasks with wide neck for general laboratory purpose. Theflasks are provided for
– direct use in laboratory , fitting together with other equipment for general laboratory purposes;- further work up to other products.
NOTE For narrow-necked boiling flasks, lS0 1773 applies.For boiling flasks with conical ground joints, see IS0 4797.

ISO 3585, Borosilicate glass 3.3—Properties
3Series and capacities
3.1Series of nominal capacity
The series of nominal capacities of wide-necked conical flasks is as follows (given in millilitres);:50—100 —250—500 — 1 000
The series of nominal capacities of wide-necked round-bottom flasks is as follows (given in millilitres):50—100—250—500— 1 000-2 000—4 000—6 000—10 000
The series of nominal capacities of wide-necked flat-bottom flasks is as follows (given in millilitres);50— 100 — 250 —500 — 1000—2 000
The nominal capacity of a flask is the value, selected from the series given in 3.1, which is closest to but notlarger than the actual volume to the base of neck.
NOTE The body dimensions recommended in Tables 1 and 2 take this requirement into account.
Flasks shall be made from borosilicate glass 3.3 in accordance with ISO 3585, and shall be free from visibledefects which might affect performance, and free from any internal stress which would impair the performanceof the flask.
5 Construction and dimensions
Conical flasks and flat-bottom flasks shall stand vertically without rocking or spinning when placed on a levelsurface.
The neck of the flask shall be substantially circular in cross-section and the mouth of the neck shall not bebelled to any considerable distance from the top.The top of the neck shall be suitably strengthened.
5.2.1 Recommended dimensions
Dimensions for wide-necked conical flasks are given in Table 1.
