Sup Eng recently built and installed in its lab a new sapphire cell system for full media visualization and for thermodynamic measurements in supercritical fluids and in high pressure conditions. Equipped with a transparent jacket or immersed in a hot water bath for precise temperature control, it is designed with sampling systems and operated either in batch or continuously mode.
It will be used for new process developments like:
– Measurement of equilibrium data to be introduced in our process simulation suite SIM FIT.
– Determination of optimal process conditions allowing for instance to set good separation or precipitation conditions like for instance in the dewaxing process.
– Observing and quantifying phenomena like beads fluidization used in some coating or drying processes.
