Measuring Cylinders

Measuring cylinders are instruments commonly used in laboratories to measure the volume of different liquids. Manufactured from either glass or plastic, measuring cylinders also tend to have graduations running up the product in ml to represent the volume of the liquid being measured. This allows precise measurements to be taken whilst pouring and dispensing. Many graduated cylinders also include a spout to help distribute the contents of the item being measured.

What are measuring cylinders made from?

Measuring cylinders are made from different materials dependant on the user's preference and /or they can also be changed depending on what the contents inside the cylinder are made from, as some may react differently with the cylinder.
