An iron stand is used in chemistry and other sciences to sturdy the subject that you are experimenting with or equipment that you are using.

The iron stand will usually be paired with an iron ring. This iron ring is the part of the equipment that attaches the subject and keeps it sturdy on the iron stand. This can be used to hold test tubes, glasses and different types of metals and other subjects of experiments.

  • Safety
Using an iron stand can also help keep you safe. It does have a use for holding things but if a subject in your experiment is likely to have a violent reaction, or an unknown reaction, it is best to use the iron stand and ring to hold it in place. This will prevent you from harming yourself by holding it in your hand and possibly getting heat or cold burn or a nasty chemical reaction on your skin.

  • Iron
Iron is used as the material for this stand and ring because of some of the qualities it possesses. It is strong, durable and sturdy making it ideal for holding things in place. It is also extremely heat resistant. This helps when dealing with very hot or reactive subjects as it is less likely to break or become damaged during the experiment. It is also less likely to cause a reaction when heated or change the variables in an experiment while you are using it although you should take into account that the subject, where possible, should be kept within a container that is not reactive and will not affect the experiment. This can be attached to the iron stand and ring to keep it in place.

It holds the heated object/s in place. A substitute is a tripod.
