Chemical Stability of the Brinkmann Bottletop Dispenser and the Brinkmann Bottletop Buret

Bottletop dispensers are used in the lab for dispensing a wide range of different solvents from glass or stainless steel containers. These dispensers have to meet various requirements. For example, they must not give off any substances which may disturb trace analysis, have cytotoxic properties, distort optical tests or influence chromatographic methods and residue analysis.

Even after prolonged contact with the solvent, the materials of the dispenser must not be affected nor bind the solvent non-specifically. This means that there are very high demands on the chemical resistance of bottletop dispensers.

The Brinkmann Bottletop Dispenser and Brinkmann ChemSaver Bottletop Dispenser are made of material which is particularly resistant to chemicals. Only parts made of PFA (perfluor alkoxy), PTFE (polytetrafluor ethylene), boron silicate glass 3.3 and platinum / iridium come into contact with the solvents. The adapter rings for the screw connection are made of PP (polypropylene).

The following pages include an example on the use of a Bottletop Dispenser for residue analysis in the lab of a food manufacturer as well as a list of the materials of which the Bottletop Dispenser is made and their chemical resistence.

The residue analysis of foodstuffs places high demands on the solvents and the inertness of the lab equipment used to detect, for example, even the smallest traces of pesticides.

A series of experiments were performed to test the suitability of the Bottletop Dispenser for food analysis. Aim: to determine whether the Bottletop Dispenser is inert to the solvents commonly used in this field.

Two examples of these experiments are described briefly below:


Test A

100 ml of the solvent acetonitrile (CH3CN) were drawn from a larger supply with a Bottletop Dispenser, evaporated in a rotation evaporator and then dissolved in 1 ml of the solvent i-octane. This sample was examined using gas Chromatography.
Result: No other peak could be found in addition to the solvent peak. Therefore, no substances had been released from the Bottletop Dispenser.

Test B

A specific amount of the herbicide atrazine (50 pg / ml) 1) was added to a sample treated as in test A as a comparative standard for pesticides. In order to detect minute amounts of pesticide, the background in the chromato-gram must consistently be as low as possible.
Result: The atrazine peak can be clearly seen in the chromatogram without any ghost bands. This shows that minute amounts of pesticides can be detected with this system.
