Supercritical fluids such as gasoline, methanol, acetone or nitrocellulose thinner are used within the check chamber, whose interior can be considered via gas-tight glass panes, at process temperatures of as much as 80°C and a maximum amount of 200 l. A high-resolution information recording system ensures accurate monitoring and outcomes.
