High Pressure and Temperature Batch Reaction Vessels

The High Pressure and Temperature Batch Reaction Vessels were designed and constructed within the Applied Geoscience Laboratory at Edinburgh to undertake batch reactions at elevated pressures and temperatures.

High Pressure and Temperature Batch Reaction Vessels

The equipment was designed to be filled with a mixture of rock and fluids (ratio variable by experimental design) and maintain pressurisation up to 15MPa and heated up to 80oC in an oven. 

Three batch reactors allow the simultaneous run of a control, a closed system batch reaction, and a batch reaction that allows the fluids to be repetitively sampled throughout the experiment duration.

 

The High Pressure and Temperature Batch Reaction Vessels are rated to provide:

  • 15MPa pressure
  • Up to 80oC temperature.
  • Wide variety of rock and fluid types
  • Fluid sampling for ICP analysis

 

The team within the Applied Geoscience Laboratory welcomes scientific collaboration and are always happy to discuss new projects and experimental designs.  Please contact:
