A cold-sealing capsule design for synthesis of fluid inclusions and other hydrothermal experiments in a piston-cylinder apparatus

Hack, Alistair; Mavrogenes, John


Here we report on a newly developed, large-volume, cold-sealed capsule design for hydrothermal synthesis experiments in a piston-cylinder apparatus that should be useful for the production of synthetic fluid inclusions at pressures and temperatures not previously attained in gas- or fluid-pressurized reaction vessels. The design is adapted for large-volume experiments using a 30 mm internal-diameter pressure vessel, but can be scaled down to suit smaller pressure vessels, e.g., 15.9 mm (5/8″)...[Show more]
