Hydrothermal Autoclave Reactor

The Hydrothermal Autoclave Reactor is used to carry hydrothermal reactions at high pressure and high temperature. Hydrothermal synthesis reactor generally comes in two varieties; the first is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or Teflon lined hydrothermal autoclave reactors and the second is PPL lined autoclave. Hydrothermal reactor mainly made up of two parts; outer high-quality stainless-steel jacket and inner Teflon liner or Teflon chamber. In the Teflon-lined autoclave, the reaction is carried out at maximum 240-degree Celsius (428 Fahrenheit), while the safe temperature is 200-degree Celsius (392 Fahrenheit). PPL lined reactor used for the reaction operates at higher temperatures, where the safe temperature will be 260-degree Celsius (500 Fahrenheit) and the maximum operating temperature is 280-degree Celsius (536 Fahrenheit). This product is extensively used in the scientific laboratory, research and development labs, institutional organizations, quality analysis section in industries, etc.

Hydrothermal Autoclave Reactor OPERATING GUIDE

1. Place the Autoclave and sterilizing material on the table or on the shelf.
2. Twist the screw-type threaded primary SS cap (SS Alloy 304) in an anticlockwise direction until it has been opened.
3. There are 2 types of SS gasket/lid in the reactor, 1 is on the bottom side and another is on top of the Teflon vessel chamber.
4. Lift the top SS gasket or lid and take-out milky white color PTFE/Teflon reaction chamber.
5. Now fill solvent (as per liner’s capacity) in the reaction chamber and seal it.
6. Make sure that the Teflon cap should be air-tight to avoid pressure leakage.
7. Place Teflon or PTFE liner in a stainless-steel chamber.
8. Keep the top gasket over the vessel and make sure that the Teflon-lined vessel is placed properly in the Stainless-Steel chamber.
9. Then twist the primary SS cap in a clockwise direction until it does not turn anymore.
10. The secondary SS cap has been given at the top of the primary cap for extra tightening to avoid pressure leakages.
11. Rotate the primary SS cap in the clockwise direction with the help of a locking rod for additional tightening.
12. Placed the hydrothermal autoclave in oven or furnace and heat it till reactor’s safe temperature.
13. Increase the temperature of the oven and set the heating rate at 5 deg C/minute only.
14. A researcher can heat the hydrothermal autoclave to 200 deg C for safe use.
15. After completion of the hydrothermal synthesis reaction, the autoclave’s cooling rate will be 50 deg C/minute.
16. Make sure that after completion of the process clean PTFE or Teflon liner properly for reuse.
