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.

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.-%.

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.

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.

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.
