Split Demo Tank

This split demo tank will bring your classroom demonstrations to a whole new level! Pour hot, yellow liquid in one side, pour cold, blue liquid in the other side… now just pull the divider and wait for the applause. This unique demonstration tool will help you teach the basic principles of temperature inversion with the same benefits of our regular demo tank. The split demo tank is made from durable plastic that is convenient for any classroom demonstration and easy to carry from class to class. Recommended for children ages 4 and up. The size of the tank is 15.5"x3"x11"

Customer Reviews

Shouldn't leak for the price. Review by Michael S.

I purchased one for my classroom only for it to leak on the bottom and sides. It was returned back for another one only to do the same thing. In the directions that come with this piece of equipment it states the following “best to coat the channel or divider with a small amount of petroleum jelly” later it states “Even with petroleum jelly on the divider the chamber will never be water tight” So for $79.99 you can purchase a plexiglass piece of equipment that leaks. It would be nice to advertise this in the website so people know what they are buying. For that amount of money the container should not leak.

Simple yet effective Review by karen engates

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a demonstration "in action" of allowing two liquids to meet is a definite dinner time table topic for students to discuss with their parents. Whether you are discussing hot/cold, salt/fresh, temperature inversions (for liquids simulating air bodies), liquids of different densities, comparing light refraction, or whatever you can dream up, this split demo tank is awesome. Lightweight, takes less liquid and easier to use than your old hefty aquarium. Get one and you won't be disappointed. (Posted on 2/28/13)

Great Customer Service Review by Jenny

Zarah, Thank you for the update on the split demo tank. I appreciate your help and eagerly await my new non-leaky one. :-) I've loved all the products I purchased from your company. The items Steve Spangler Science offers were just what we needed to enhance our after school science club. Thanks. Jenny (Posted on 2/19/13)
