Romanian translation:curăţător de pipă umed
Explanation:
Instrumentul respectiv este un curăţător de pipă.
Se pare că se foloseşte şi în multe alte scopuri pe lângă curăţatul unei pipe, dar iniţial asta este.

A pipe cleaner is a type of brush originally intended for cleaning smoking pipes. Besides cleaning pipes, they can be used for any application that calls for cleaning out small bores or tight places, they are now used for cleaning out medical apparatus[1] and engineering applications[2]. They are popular for catching drips, tying up things, colour coding, and applying paints, oils, solvents, greases, and similar substances.

Pentru că este flexibil, se poate înfăşura în jurul eprubetei. De aceea spune "place a coil". Se înfăşoară. Probabil în cazul de faţă este din bumbac, ceea ce înseamnă că se poate umezi, şi astfel ţine eprubeta rece şi împiedică debordarea conţinutului în timpul fierberii.
