Waterless Condensers – Saving Water and Reducing Risk in Laboratories

We are very proud to share a recent case study carried out on the Asynt CondenSyn waterless air condensers by chemists at King’s College London which forms part of their “Sustainability Champions” work.

An excerpt from the study:

“Chemistry and pharmacy laboratories can consume large amounts of water, typically used for cooling of reactions and equipment. Some of the reactions which utilise water cooling can last hours and even days, meaning tonnes of water will be used and run straight into the drain. Not only does this have an environmental cost, but it can result in damages through flooding and leaks.
This very scenario occurred within the Franklin-Wilkins building of King’s College London (KCL), when an overnight condensation reaction using flowing tap water to cool a reaction had a loose pipe. The resulting damage due to the flooding exceeded £10,000, and needless to say the reaction itself was a failure….”
