Transfer air and moisture sensitive products safely from Sure/Seal® bottles into your reaction vessels. The transfer of pyrophoric liquids like tert-butyllithium has resulted in several tragic accidents in laboratories. With this hands-free setup for transfer of air and moisture sensitive chemicals, you can decrease the risk of accidents significantly and ensure clean transfer for really sensitive reactions.
The setup consists of a transfer vial with crimp-cap seals in both ends, a bottle cap aligner for standard Sure/Seal® bottles and a clamp to lock everything in place for hands-free operation.
The transfer vial, bottles, syringes and reaction vessels need to be carefully vented with inert gasses (nitrogen or argon) before transfer.
The full product is shown in (A) with the bottle cap aligner, the transfer vial with crimp caps, the clamp to lock the vial in place and extra replacement crimp caps for the vial.
First, remove the lid from the Sure/Seal® bottle – NOT the Sure/Seal® cap. (B) Vent your reaction vessel and the transfer vial with nitrogen or argon.
The bottle cap aligner is screwed onto the bottle, the vented transfer vial is placed into the aligner and locked in place with the clamp. The vented syringe is perforated through the vial and the Sure/Seal® cap to extract the needed amount. (C)
The needle is withdrawn until it is in the center of the transfer vial (D)
The clamp is released and the liquid can now be transferred safely in completely inert conditions. (E)
Finally, the transfer vial is placed on the septum of your reaction vessel and the syringe can be pushed through the transfer vial and septum to finally transfer the liquid. (F)
