11th Asian Thermophysical Properties Conference 2016 (ATPC2016)

October 2 ( Sun ) – 6 ( Thu ) , 2016 | Pacifico YOKOHAMA Annex Hall, JAPAN

Screen Shot Asia-Pacific Thermophysical Properties Conference 2016Online  —  The present Conference is the 11th in a series of very successful international conference on Thermophysical Properties held in Asia since 1986.

Although it is named as “Asian”, this is one of three world-wide conferences on thermophysical properties, namely the European Conference on Thermophysical Properties (ECTP), the Symposium on Thermophysical Properties (STP – June 2015 in the United States) and the Asian Thermophysical Properties Conference (ATPC).

Each conference is successively held every three years under the agreement of the International Thermophysics Congress.

Lufft ceilometers and the determination of official standards

By Guest Author


Berlin, Germany  —  Within the last few weeks, two high value tenders were assigned to Lufft – one from the “KNMI” (Dutch Royal Weather Service), and the other one from the largest German Weather Service “DWD” (“Deutscher Wetterdienst”).

Both of them were looking for a cloud height sensor capable of measurements to altitudes of12 kilometers.

The Lufft CHM 15k can detect different cloud layers up to 15 kilometers high.

More ceilometer facts are in the following article from the Lufft blog. Continue reading

Reactor System Optimised for Exothermic & Large Scale Reactions

Asynt Ltd.introduces Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor**

ReactoMate Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor

Isleham, UK  —  By using specially designed PTFE baffle blades together with a PTFE turbine stirrer, Asynt now offers scientists a new version of their 5000 ml ReactoMate Controlled Lab Reactor system, a baffled unit that is built to mix reactions more quickly and effectively.

Asynt’s ReactoMate Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor system has been shown to improve reproducibility of results, increase selectivity and reduce potentially unwanted side reactions as a result of its ability to provide fast mixing and dispersion, for a wide range of exothermic and large scale reactions.

Most reaction vessels used by research chemists employ simple anchor or turbine stirring devices, both of which move liquid very well but usually they produce a circular direction with a vortex created in the centre.

Despite this mixing looking dramatic the time, in such devices, for reactants to mix / disperse homogeneously with anchor or turbine stirrers is relatively slow.

This may not be an issue when the reaction under study is slow and non-exothermic.

However exothermic reactions such as hydrogenation, nitration, polymerisation, acid / base neutralisation and catalysis, especially those that require efficient cooling, can be seriously affected by slow dispersion during reagent addition.

Similarly, many reactions that work well in a lab flask often, when scaled up above 1000 ml, can also suffer seriously from this dispersion issue.

In addition to the new 5000 ml system, Asynt offers a special reactor lid, baffles and stirrer for customers to upgrade their existing suitable reaction vessels.  Other size ReactoMate Baffled Controlled Lab Reactor systems are available as custom orders.
