Improved Sustainability for Chemistry Laboratories
2 Feb 2020
Chemistry labs seeking to minimise water wastage are installing Asynt’s CondenSyn waterless air condenser for both reflux and distillation reactions.
The air condenser negates the need for any recirculating coolant during standard reflux and distillation conditions – saving the time, money and water employed by models cooled by a circulating fluid.
Dr Ffion McKeague, Technology Manager at Asynt, said: "Our CondenSyn waterless condensers are rapidly becoming a necessity in laboratories all over the world, driven by their ease of use and massive associated water savings benefits compared to using traditional water condensers.
“Not only has the CondenSyn proved itself as a sustainable alternative for reflux reactions, but increasingly also for distillation experiments using the CondenSyn Distillation Adapter. A typical Chemistry laboratory replacing standard water condensers with CondenSyn units can expect to see a return on its investment in as little as six months," she concluded.
The condenser's design uses a special borosilicate glass manufacturing technique which, together with a proprietary multiple hyperbolic profile, ensures optimum heat removal as vapours pass along its length. Offering clear visibility of ongoing experimental reflux, it is designed to be easy to clean and maintain, whilst the incorporation of a non-roll feature helps prevent accidents if left on a lab bench. Asynt offers a range of models to optimally suit different capacity round bottom flasks.
