      DMF O2 Wacker Vessel  Bookmark   

Has anyone come up with a good suggestion on what to use for the DMF O2 Reaction Vessel? I have searched around and everyone seams to have Ghetto rigged with no clear winner on what to use. I have been researching talking to Glassblowers even yet no one really seams to Know. Plastic it seams will wear out. SS is a no go but for a 4L reaction Vessel nobody seams to know proper thickness and stuff. Anyone have an answer?

Glass filter carboys are made of some of the thickest borosilicate you will find and they have held 3 atmospheres on a consistent basis.  Plenty of reaction volume as well.  Or just get a glasteel pfaulder 10 gallon RX-series w/ helical impeller... mmmmmmmmmmmm chem porn... ahhhhhh........

if you want to scale up use a ss paint sprayer with overhead stirring, and included psi gauge. oh yeah use a hdpe bucket inside for reagents or you're fucked!
hope this helps

Don't use the bucket inside.  When it gets hot, the steam goes over the edge and you lose water.

Use this, teflon coated:

Free Strike too.

The wacker will NOT work with very pleasing results if done in a stainless vessle, expect enough "tar" and shit to re-pave your driveway.  As Grouch mentioned telfon coat that puppy and you should be fine...
