Hydrothermal Synthesis Reactor HP/HT°

This range of autoclaves with metal/metal seal has been designed for high pressure and high temperature use, especially in petrology, volcanology and geology.
It allows to study the behavior of rocks, the interactions between the material and its gas/liquid environment in extreme conditions. The samples are either placed directly in the compression fluid or placed in sealed gold capsules.
The pressure is generated either by an aqueous medium using Henri’s curves (P.V.T); or by pressurizing the sample directly into gas using a booster (up to 3500bar) or a gas multiplier (up to 7000bar).
