A temperature-controlled water bath for the study of ion-pairing equilibria and mineral solubility in aqueous solutions below 100 degree C is described. The bath is similar to a previously described system (P. B. Hostetler and C. L. Christ, 1968, U. S. Geol. Survey Prof Paper 600-D, p. D217-D221) but incorporates several significant improvements. Included among these are a more efficient stirring mechanism, a potentially larger solid-to-solution ratio and improved equilibration of the gas phase with the solution.
