  • condenser
    -condenser means a cooling device for converting gases or
    vapours to liquid or solid form
  • distillation head
    -fits on top of a reaction vessel or a vessel that serves the
    same purpose as a reaction vessel; and

    -connects to a condenser; and
    -is suitably angled to allow vapour to flow downwards
    into a collection vessel.
  • heating mantle
    -a device designed or adapted to heat a
    reaction vessel or a vessel that serves the same purpose as a
    reaction vessel.
  • Reaction vessel, including a reaction vessel under repair or a
    modification of a reaction vessel
    -No formal definition given. But common and reasonable sense relates this to any vessel that a reaction, (ie a change in molecular structure) of a compound that HAStaken place in. And also the technical name for an item called a Reaction Vessel, which is a flask with a large opening, that requires a lid, that contains joints.
    -My thoughtsThis would mean all round and flat bottom flasks do not require an EUD, unless they are to be used to perform reactions in. ie. Steam distilltion would be acceptable, without requiring an EUD. I assume the act is refering to the actual product, called a reaction vessel. Unfortuantely, the act contains no formal defination, therefore leaving it hard to fully understand.
  • rotary evaporator - self explanatory
  • splash head, including a splash head under repair or parts for a splash head.
    -means an apparatus that fits between a reaction
    vessel, or a vessel that serves the same purpose as a reaction
    vessel, and a condenser and stops a heated substance
    contaminating the distillate.
