Scientific Reports Compare Air & Water Condensers

Asynt announces how new scientific evaluations from the Department of Chemistry, University of Uppsala (Sweden)** and the Australian National University (Canberra) report on the testing of the performance of their CondenSyn air condenser versus traditional water-driven condensers and an alternative commercial air condenser  in “real-world” laboratory conditions.

Synthesis labs are aware that water-driven condensers use a large amount of water which is wasteful / expensive and offer the possibility of leaks from the condenser which can result in flooding thus are keen to find an alternative.

In the two independent reports the Asynt CondenSyn air condenser displayed comparable performance to even the most efficient water-driven condensers and outperformed the alternative air condenser designs tested.  For low-boiling solvents such as dichloromethane the Asynt CondenSyn was seen to provide superior performance to the water-driven condensers.

Given the advantages of the CondenSyn such as eliminating water consumption, less cluttered working environments and ease of setting up and cleaning up reactions, both reports conclude that the CondenSyn is a superior choice to water-driven condensers. In addition by combining the CondenSyn with a heating block system, reflux set-ups can be prepared quickly and easily with no chance of water or oil spillages.
