Koehler Instrument Reid VAP. Pressure Bath

Here’s another of the many unique items found at LabPlanet.  The Koehler Instrument Reid VAP Pressure Bath.   Vapor pressure is a critical factor in the handling and performance of liquid petroleum and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) products.  This unit will hold 13.7 gallons of water.  The vapor pressure of automotive gasolines is subject to governmental regulations regarding pollution control.  The unit adheres to strict ASTM specifications.

Basically, the unit controls bath temperature with ±0.1°C (±0.2°F) precision.  A Microprocessor PID control provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot, and bath is protected by an over-temperature control circuit that interrupts power should bath temperature exceed programmed cutoff point.

The unit’s Dual LED displays provides actual and set-point temperature values in °C/°F format. Double wall construction with fiberglass insulated stainless steel tank.  A sturdy 25mm (1″) flange permits flush-mounted bench top installation for easy access to bath interior. Built-in holders suspend test cylinders at the required depth. Equipped with overflow stand pipe/drain.

Koehler is one of the leading manufacturers of Pressure Baths in the US.  I do advise my customers to allow for 4-6 weeks production time as Koehler will not ship this unit unitl it has been fully tested and meets ASTM Specifications.
