Findensers reduce water consumption at the University of Cardiff

Findenser at Cardiff University
The chemistry teaching laboratories at the University of Cardiff were using expensive bespoke water condensers to trap the exhaust gases of rotary evaporator vacuum pumps. Several were needed for their new teaching laboratory, so they decided to look at alternatives.

They settled on the Findenser super air condenser, which requires no running water to operate. As a result, it is estimated that the labs will reduce their water usage by ~ 3,000 litres of water per day. This will reduce water purchase and disposal costs AND help the University of Cardiff meet its overall target of a 3% reduction in water usage per annum.

The Chief Technician commented “The Findensers are just as efficient and more cost effective than bespoke water condensers, giving a clean, clutter-free appearance to the bench tops while saving significantly on water usage.”
