So this is the 3rd time my large separation funnels keep breaking…im not bumping it touching it or nothing just breaks
I didn’t have it loaded I used it 2x and once again another one snaps in the same spot…this one I didn’t even notice till I went to get it out to clean…I leave in my stand all the time break at the stopcock
Its a David product I had 2 his do this and one ebay no name
Is it possible that the stand is exerting pressure at some weak place in the glass? Got a pic of your stand?

I would think bc holds it way higher
The stand made from.end table
I’m just so.sick this.the lil one has lasted years
Let.me.get better pic the place dirty not where I extract but where I store
did it break when you twisted the stopcock?
May 12, 2021, 12:49am
no I saw it today fine…come.home.to make one last pull or 2 and broken…I mean I can siphon it off but fuck me these aren’t cheap
Huh, could be the strong bases messing with the glass?
@goldleaf_scientific got any input here?

never thought that but I don’t leave it in there
lye can eat glass overtime, especially the etched parts.
Looks like whatever the plastic is made of is probably swelling

I’m not blaming David but I need to clean it after everytime huh even when empty
He asked would I rather have one like this
Im afraid material will get hung in the y off
could be a defect in the glass, the stopcocks are sometimes cast boro, on some you can even see a parting line. Do your have a small ridge across the valve?
I was just about to pull a link for one of those
the outside of the valve, right where yours broke

So they are better …does the side y make it flow and not leak out the y
the valve shouldn’t leak, it drains out the bottom like yours does
I think I’m with Waxplug, it looks like something is causing the stop-cock to swell, or something. With it being right there at that point? Huh, weird for sure
