New DrySyn Accessory Simplifies Set-up for Parallel Chemistry
Product News Aug 05, 2011
A new 3-way Water Manifold complimentary to Asynt’s DrySyn MULTI range provides a simple way for chemists in R&D laboratories to connect three water-cooled condensers to a single water supply.
DrySyn multi-position heating blocks enable reactions in up to three flasks to be carried out in parallel. However, connecting three water-cooled condensers can be problematic, so Asynt has developed a new accessory, the DrySyn Water Manifold.
Maximizing fume cupboard coolant use, the DrySyn Water Manifold converts a single water tap into three condensing streams, and collects the outlets into one drain tube.
With the main body constructed from high quality anodized aluminium, the manifold is designed to be clamped to fume hood scaffolding in either vertical or horizontal alignment.
Quick release plastic connectors enable rapid reaction set-up and dismantling, with sealing on both the tubing and the manifold side. This means that one condenser can be disconnected while the others remain in use, without leaks.
The modular DrySyn MULTI system offers a high degree of flexibility for R&D chemists, converting any standard hotplate stirrer into a reaction block for three flasks of 10 ml to100 ml, or up to 12 vials.
The latest accessory for the range saves time, avoids the need to daisy-chain multiple condensers and helps keep the workspace tidy.
