Not sure what a ring stand is or why you need it? Ring stands are a type of lab stand and are actually one of the most versatile pieces of lab equipment.

An adjustable rod connects to a sturdy base (often made of cast steel) to support a clamp. Use lab stands to elevate various pieces of lab equipment, usually glassware. They're also sometimes called a support stand, retort stand, and clamp stand.

With a support stand and clamp, you can easily set up any chemistry or physics experiment that requires raising one object above another. For example, holding a beaker of liquid above a lit alcohol lamp—or a thermometer suspended into a flask without touching the bottom of it. The lab stand and ring stand clamp work together to make scenarios like this possible.

Order one sturdy ring stand and other apparatus as needed. The 3" or 4" ring support will hold beakers or crucibles over a burner and the clamps hold anything from a burette tube to thermometer.

We also sell alcohol lamps that fit these stands.
