Flexibility in Design

The majority of our products are standard in size and dimensions and have been designed to be modular so you can easily interchange between different vessels using the same stand. We can customise the designs to suit you requirements if required, for example, if you need additional ports or vertical ports for electrochemistry/sensors, or bottom drain valves etc. We can also design new stands and arrangements to suit your exact available space if one of our standard stands doesn’t quite fit. If required, we can also assist in specifying your laboratory space and provide guidance on connections (such as exhaust, dump tanks etc) directing away from your autoclave.
