University of Michigan Cross Chamber Flow Cell Instrument

KineOptics designed and fabricated this Flow Cell for the University of Michigan Department of Chemical Engineering. It consists of four BK7 Glass Corner Plates bonded between two BK7 Glass End Plates which makes the completed glass assembly 72 mm square. The inside corner edges were required to be sharp with no visible bevel. Notice how the round aperture of the feed tube blends into the square passage created by the glass plates. This was done with wire EDM. The bonded glass assembly is mounted in an aluminum housing with a center aperture for the test laser. There are four ports with o-ring seals for the test fluid connections.
