Equipment (site under construction)

Rectification Test Rig

This self-constructed unit is fully automized and allows the determination of pressure drop, and seperation efficiency (HTU/HETP) for our 3D printed columns and packings. It can be used for a wide range of column diameters as well as gas and liquid loads.

Test Rig for Liquid Distribution Measurements

This test facility allows us to measure the liquid distribution in additively manufactured packings. A wide range of possible diameter can be investigated. Different liquid distributors and liquid collectors are available fo this task.

CINC extractor V02 / CS50

This extraction centrifuge can be used for liquid-liquid extractions in non-reactive and reactive systems. The RPM ranges from 0 to 6000 (= 0 to 1000 g). The feed stream can be varied between 0,01 and 1 L/min.

Gas Chromatograph Shimadzu Nexis GC-2030

GC equiped with autosampler (120 vials) and FID detector. Software: LabSolutions

Refractometer Krüss DR6300-T

The temperature controlled refractometer measures the refractive index in a range between 1.32000 to 1.70000 with an accuracy of +/- 0.00002 and the %Brix in a range of 0 to 0.95 with an accuracy of +/- 0.02.

Karl-Fischer Titrator

The volumetric KF-Titrator V10S from Metler Toledo allows water analysis from 100 ppm to 100 wt.-%.

IKA RotaVisc

The level of measurement accuracy of this rotational viscometer for both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids is +/- 1 % of the measuring range. The reproducibility is +/- 0.2 %. Viscosity measuring range: 1 - 6,000,000 mPas.

Lab Reactor IKA LR 1000 control

This fully automated lab reactor is an all-rounder used for batch reactions, extraction and for crystallization. Maximum working temperature: 125°C. Maximum vacuum: 25 mbar. An IKA Ultra-Turrax T25 digital is part of the unit. Software: Labworldsoft.

Lab Reactor Vorwerk Thermomix

Not only good for cooking but most likely the cheapest lab reactor in the world :-) The temperature controlled Thermomix is used for the preparation of emulsions and suspensions.

VLE Determination Device

The VLE measurement device VLE 602 from Fischer Technology allows the reliable determination of vapor-liquid-equilibria in a pressure range from vacuum to ambient pressure.
