Did you know? A traditional glass water condenser uses 150 litres of water in just one hour? Put simply, it makes little economic or environmental sense to pour thousands of litres of water down the sink every day just to cool a single condenser.
Water is a precious resource. Saving water reduces the cost of buying it, helps the environment and reduces energy used in pumping and treatment.
The new patented Findenser from Radleys is an innovative and unique air condenser which replaces the need for water cooled condensers in over 95% of all common chemistry applications.
Developed by engineers and chemists at a leading Pharmaceutical company, Findenser is comprised of a glass condenser and an external finned aluminium jacket, between which a small amount of water is permanently sealed.
The design of the glass inner and finned jacket mean Findenser has a much greater surface area and heat transfer capacity than a standard air condenser.
The result is a ‘super air condenser’, that tests have shown performs as well as a traditional water condenser in all popular chemistry applications.
So, what are the benefits? Findenser requires no running water to operate, thus eliminating the need to purchase and dispose of water.
Findenser saves water so is environmentally friendly. Findenser prevents the risk of your lab flooding from a running water supply.
Costing’s show that Findenser will give a return-on investment in less than 6 months, based on running a single water condenser for 8 hours a day.
Findenser can be used in vessels up to 2 litres with up to 1 litre of solvent. It comes as standard with a B24 ground glass cone and fits all standard tapered glass sockets. A PTFE adapter for B29 sockets is also available.
