Case Study: PRESTO A80t Process system

Cooling a Asahi 20 l reactor from +150 °C to +20 °C with a PRESTO A80t Process system

Objective

This case study tests the cooling capacity of the JULABO PRESTO A80t Process system with a 20 l glass reactor. The PRESTO A80t is connected to the reactor via two 1 m long metal hoses. The PRESTO A80t Process system has been programmed to cool down from +150 °C to +20 °C.
