FREEZER FOR PLASTINATION
Freezer for plastination is adapted and is used for dehydration and forced impregnation. It is large, and a man can enter it. The temperature in it ranges from -16 to -23.0. It has an openings, of wich one is for the vacuum pump.
VACUUM CHAMBERS FOR PLASTINATION
We have three different vacuum chambers. They are different sized, and are created for plastination of different sized organs, parts of the body or the whole body of an animal. They are matched with glass, so we can keep a check on how the process of impregnation is progressing. .
The steel basket is corresponding with the size of the one of the vacuum chambers. It is used to put the preparations in the vacuum chamber for the impregnation, and to pulled out after finshing the impregnation.
It is used for maintenance of the constant vacuum conditions. Frequently it is used only in the first two-thirds of the period of the forsed impregnation. It allows manual, semi-automatic and automatic regulation of the pressure in the vacuum chamber.
VACUUM PUMP FOR PLASTINATION
The pump gradually reduce the pressure in the vacuum chamber. The speed of the pumping that is needed for the plastination, it depends from the volume of the impregnation bath.
Gauge – for measuring of the concentration (1-100%) of the acetone;
Special gauge – for measuring high concentration of acetone (90-100%) in details;
SMALL GASEOUS CONSERVATOR
It is used for conserving of the small preparations infiltrated with silicone. It consist of plastic box, plastic bag to cover the box, one membraneceous pump wich connects to gaseous conservator and a glass that contain S6 silicone fixator. .
Ѕ10 : Basic silicone supstance (silicone rubber), that is used for impregnation of all of the organs. It is easily used, and not needs a special equipment to handle it. Impregnation bath that have allready been used, it can be used continuously for future plastination processes, or it can be stored at -70 C..
Ѕ6 : Silicone fixator that is used in final process of the plastination -the final fixation of the preparations.
Ѕ3 : Silicone fixator that is added to the S10 bath, to enforce the action of the S10.
