    SS High Pressure Digestion Vessels

The pressure vessels DAB-2, DAB-3 and DAB-3 XXL have a wide range of applications. They can be used ideally for digestions of big sample amounts or inhomogeneous samples, like soil or milk powder. Furthermore, they are often used for solvothermal synthesis or for material tests like aging tests.

The DAB-2, DAB-3 and DAB-3 XXL pressure vessels convince by an easy handling and can be operated using one hand only. In addition, an opening station is available. By the use of this station, opening the pressure vessels becomes eve

DAB Mounting Tools

For an easy handling

For an easy and save closing and opening of the DAB pressure vessels, a set of mounting tools is available. It consists of a mounting base plate and a torque wrench with plug-in nut (hexagonal). The mounting base plate serves to fix the pressure vessels. The plug lifts the mobile base plate of the pressure vessel for ejection of the PTFE-insert.

DAH Heating Block

For an even and controlled heating of DAB vessels

DAH heating block with a heating ring and coated stainless steel safety hood as well as an integrated over-heat protection for DAB-2, DAB-3 and DAB-3 XXL pressure vessels. Temperature regulation between 50 °C and 320 °C. Maximum user safety through insulation and cladding. Depending on the combination of pressure vessel and heating block between two and twelve vessels can be heated up at the same time.

BTC-3000 Temperature Controller

For controlled heating processes

Using the BTC-3000, heating processes for the Berghof reactors and pressure digestion vessels can be controlled and monitored. Thanks to a clear-structured control panel, programming of the temperature control unit is easy and intuitive. The BTC-3000 cannot only control temperatures, but offers a pressure monitoring, as well. In case of uncontrolled increase in pressure, the BTC-3000 regulates the experiment automatically.
