Plastic Funnels

Nalgene plastic funnels are a safer alternative to glass. They won’t break, chip or shatter amid the bustle and bumps of everyday lab work, and won't dent or corrode like metal funnels. Enjoy their light weight and ease of handling.

Trust Nalgene funnels to be made from the highest quality laboratory-grade polypropylene copolymer (PPCO), high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), and polypropylene (PP) materials for dependably low extractables and compatibility with a broad range of lab materials.

With so many sizes and styles, there are Nalgene plastic funnels to serve a wide variety of lab applications.

Which funnels are right for your application?

Footnote:

1. HDPE and LDPE are acceptable for: Nonacid, aqueous products; may contain salt, sugar or both (pH above 5.0). Dairy products and modifications; oil-in-water emulsions, high or low fat. Moist bakery products with surface containing no free fat or oil. Dry solids with the surfaces containing no free fat or oil (no end-test required) and under all conditions as described in Table 2 of FDA Regulation 177.1520 except condition A - high temperature sterilization (e.g. over 100° C / 212° F)

+Ratings are for short term intermittent exposure. Wash thoroughly between uses.
