Any instrument that operates at elevated temperatures and pressures creates a safety concern in the lab. HTHP filter press cells are no different. The traditional design, with its six locking screws around the cap, has been known to trap pressure and become a safety risk.
OFITE has designed a new cell with safety in mind. This modular design is much safer and more convenient. The two-piece cap is threaded, and cannot be opened while the cell is pressurized. And interchangeable caps make it easy to reconfigure the cell for testing with different filter media (filter paper, ceramic disks, or cement screens) with a single cell body.
This innovative new cell is available in both 175 mL and 500 mL. Both sizes are compatible with standard HTHP filter press heating jackets, valve stems, and pressure assemblies. They are rated to a maximum pressure of 5000 PSI (34.5 MPa) and 500°F (260°C). And all components are pressure tested and serialized.
