Description
Here, a Bunsen burner, a vessel for solution, and an atomizer are mounted together. When attached to an air supply, the atomizer blows a fine spray of the solution in the gas, giving a bright, broad frame with the color characteristic of the salt used. There is a “GAERTNER” inscription.
