Achromatic condenser. —This condenser is used with trans­ mitted light for routine work. The most common type is the Abbé condenser, designed by Professor Abbé in 1872. It con­ sists of two lenses and an iris diaphragm (Fig. 41). As no correction is made for chromatic or spherical aberration, a considerable amount of scattering occurs. This can be reduced by partly closing the iris diaphragm, or by placing immersion oil on the top lens of the condenser, under the object slide. For critical work, an achromatic condenser is essential.

GENERAL LABORATORY APPARATUS Thermostat for gas-heated water-baths (Fig. 21) Gas enters tube (A), passes into the chamber and escapes through (B) and the by-pass (C) to the burner. As the capsule (D) expands it closes the gap (E), and the by-pass (C) provides the only gas reaching the burner to maintain the pilot flame. The capsule contracts on cool­ ing, opening the gap (E), and gas again passes through (B) to the burner. With this type of thermostat, the only adjustment necessary is made by tightening or loosening the screw (F).

The glass tubing is placed in the semi-circle of the metal rod, with the latter exactly over the etched line, and rotated. A crack will pass right round the glass tube, and the ends may then be separated. When glass tubing has been cut, the sharp edges should be smoothed. Rotation of the end of the tubing in a hot flame 39 ELEMENTARY GLASS-BLOWING will soften the glass and produce a rounded end. Over-exposure in the flame will cause the glass to melt, reducing the bore, and finally occluding the lumen.
