An apparatus has been constructed which incorporates the use of flowmeters, micrometer valves, and assorted tubing to perform gravity controlled pAg double-jet precipitations. This unique system controls the pAg concentration by adjusting the flow rate of the halide solution. The pAg concentration is continually monitored by the millivolt output produced from a specific ion electrode for Bromide and a Calomel reference electrode. A Scanning Electron Microscope study was performed to determine whether this apparatus is capable of obtaining the same results as others, in terms of crystal size and shape, when varying pAg concentrations and precipitation time in a factorial experiment.
