Solvent handling trolley aids efficiency and accuracy in polyolefin characterisation

Oct 09 2019 Read 319 Times

One of the most inconvenient tasks in a polyolefin characterisation laboratory is the manual handling of solvents to fill and empty the instrument bottles. Polymer Char has designed a tool that performs this task for the user in an easier and faster way. The Solvent Handling Trolley (SHT) is designed to transfer fresh and waste solvents, such as TCB and DCB, between a filling station and different instruments without coming into direct contact with neither solvents nor vapors. Thanks to the SHT, solvents can be transferred in a safe and convenient way around the laboratory.

The SHT reduces the physical effort of lifting heavy bottles, and the high risks and time spent when carrying solvents around the laboratory to perform different analytical techniques. The trolley’s capacity is large enough that it can fill with fresh solvent more than one instrument in the same round, and it can also gather waste solvent from several instruments consecutively to be emptied all at once. Besides the convenience it offers, this tool is also safer for the analyst operating it because the system is air-tight and the vapors return to the filling station when the transfer happens, so they cannot be inhaled. By using the SHT, the risks of dropping the bottles or getting contaminated by contact are largely minimised.
