Heat Exchange Jacket

Heat Exchange Jacket

The heat exchange jacket design concerns a laboratory scale removable jacket which encases a domed end-cap sample cylinder. Heat exchanging fluid (cooling liquid or steam) can be pumped through the annulus formed between the shell of the jacket and the external surface of the sample cylinder. The jacket therefore allows direct contact between the heat exchanging fluid and the wall of the sample cylinder. The jacketed design does not restrict access to the top-and bottom entry ports of the sample cylinder.

This design allows the following benefits:
• Rapid heat transfer
• Inhibits the formation of temperature gradients within the shell
• No need for alteration of the sample cylinder to allow fitment of the jacket
• Fast assembly and removal of the jacket
