Custom Equipment

Laboratory professionals are often asked to source equipment for specific research conceived within their organisations where there is no ‘off-the-shelf‘ solution. Our instruments experts provide a comprehensive design, fabrication and support package to meet your specifications.

Project Examples


custom equipment pic 1Ignition Research

Requested: A high pressure vapour ignition research test apparatus

Delivered: A complete system capable of 3500 barg at 400°C for recording temperature and pressure data resulting from vapour ignitions at elevated starting pressure conditions.


custom equipment pic 2Waste Screening Cal (CMYK)

Requested: Exothermic waste-stream screening calorimeter

Delivered: A custom, automated calorimeter linked to mixing, dosing, heating, agitating and relief equipment for short duration on-site screening of mixed waste stream samples by non-technical operators.


custom equipment pic 320 Litre Sphere

Requested: A capacitive spark discharge capability for a 20 litre sphere

Delivered: Development of a capacitive spark discharge system within a 20 litre sphere by utilising the pre-existing KSEP 310 ignition firing signal.
