Controllore acqua e raffreddamento
Many distilleries contain substances which may spark spontaneously in contact with air and/or water. In the usual laboratory practice these are mainly the alkali metals and its hydrides. Particular caution is needed for distillation residues containing alkali metals. These must be cooled constantly by cooling water. At a breakdown of the cooling system of the cooling water, the heaters however continue to work and the distillery dries-out. This creates high fire and explosion hazard due to the alkali metal. With the Water Safety Switch WSS16 this risk is practically eliminated.
