Horizontal view cell Eurotechnica “HPVC 350-W”
This visual cell allows the observation of phases behaviour at high pressures and temperatures.
The apparatus is composed by a stainless steel cylinder, in the interior of which is housed the substance that is going to be studied and a piston moved by an hydraulic manual Nickel alloy piston pump. To ensure a correct mixing, the cell disposes also of a hermetically sealed magnetic stirrer.
This horizontal visual cell has a variable volume between 40 and 70 mL. Maximum operation temperature is 200 ºC and maximum pressure is 200 bar.
The device disposes of a lamp to illuminate one end of the view cell and a camcorder to capture images of inside the cell and displayed on the computer screen, avoiding direct viewing through the windows.
It was constructed by Eurotechnica.
