At Asynt and Optimus Instruments our customers are concerned about both the environmental impact and indeed costs of running a research facility. A condenser is often required for synthetic experiments and therefore an essential tool for the research chemist. Condensers cooled by a circulating fluid such as water are effective and common; however these are often simply used directly with tap water which creates an environmental and cost issue. Ideally such condensers should be attached to a recirculating chiller unit which will not just reduce the environmental impact but also the long term running costs.
Now there is an alternative which used correctly can be used to replace the water condenser in many bench scale reactions; the NEW CondenSyn.
We used our 32 years of scientific glass manufacturing knowledge to come up with a design that offers effective condensing by not just increasing surface area but also by having thicker glass than traditional glass condensers.
The CondenSyn is manufactured from borosilicate glass; the design also allows for easy cleaning and has a non-roll feature to stop accidents when left on a bench.
Independent tests were performed by a leading UK University to evaluate the performance for safe use in their research and teaching laboratories. Evaluations were based upon a basic 350mm effective length CondenSyn, a 250ml round bottom flask with 150ml of solvent. CondenSyn is currently available in two lengths, 350mm (as tested) and 450mm for enhanced performance for more demanding applications. You can also choose from a variety of socket sizes. Due to the light weight of CondenSyn two can easily and safely be stacked on top of each other for longer term critical low loss experiments.
