It is an airstone for an aquarium, often for diffusing CO2 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clear-Glass-Carbon-Dioxide-Mainta...
I have similar https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aquarium-Fish-Tank-CO2-Diffuser-G...

For chemistry, not aquarium, I pumped un-filtered air through mine and after a few hours the fritt was blocked, not checked why yet.

It's a a glass frit, but doesn't seem like a filter... maybe it's for filtering gases or something?
Thanks.


Looks like an aquarium bubbler

Hello all! This bundle of joy just came in the mail today and I have no idea what they are used for :D! I got the whole lot for 6 bucks (not including shipping) and I thought that was a pretty good deal. The thing that really got me excited was that one of the tubes was labeled "quartz" and the other "PYREX". All except #5 have fritted glass in them. The also all have an o-ring fitting on them. I would guess that these are some sort of gas drying/reaction tubes. Anyway, I look forward to what you guys have to say about them!

They are a bit weird and have definitely been made with a specific purpose in mind. Any of them could be used for scrubbing low volumes of gas. That's probably what I would use them for.

I've thought about using them a reaction tubes. You know, like for making things like silicon tetrachloride, and various trimerization reactions. That's one reason I was excited about the quartz tube.

The quartz one is something I haven't run into before.

Wonder if it's for some photochemical application?

Oooh, I didn't think of that. That would be interesting since quartz doesn't absorb much uv light. Good thinking!

What is this thing?


I have no other information aside from the picture. Someone was selling glass online and sent me this as part of their inventory. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I have not seen anything like it
