While watching youtube videos on how to make concentrated nitric acid, I noticed that many people had condensers to turn the nitric acid gas into a liquid. While I don't plan on making concentrated nitric acid anytime soon, I did like the idea of having a condenser. I checked online to see how much a condenser was and it turns out that they can be quite expensive! This was way to much for my $100 home chemistry lab budget so I got to thinking. In one of my older posts I explained that I bought 20 ft of vinyl tubing four $6 at home depot, so I decided to incorporate this into my condenser. Vinyl appears to be resistant to most chemicals although I certainly wouldn't use it for anything too advanced. By running it through a piece of PVC pipe, and then adding two end caps with holes drilled through them, I can create a line for the vapors to run through and a chamber to hold the water. By adding two outlets to my PVC chamber I can attach a pump to circulate the water around. Given that PVC is fairly cheap, this shouldn't cost more than ten dollars in materials!
