Technical equipment of the Department
Our laboratories are equipped to support synthetic chemical experiments as well as engineering experiments. In addition to laboratories suitable for synthetic (organic) chemistry and even reactions under inert conditions the institute has several fume cupboards for pilot plants.
Special processes with toxic or explosive media or high-pressure techniques are examined in an autoclav rooms. The appliances are equipped with computerized data acquisition and are hooked to the computer network of the institute. Some reactors can be fully automatically operated continuously for long-term tests. In addition to the online analysis the institute has the ability to perform many types of analysis with offline-devices, e.g. DTA, CHNSO elemental analysis of solids/liquids, SN elemental analysis of liquids, GC/FID, GC/MS.
Each laboratory is equipped with automatic gas detectors for CO and the ignitable gases hydrogen and methane (natural gas) with central and local monitoring. The autoclav area is additionally monitored by surveillance cameras.
