In a closed system filled with fluid, a thermodynamic equilibrium sets in between the fluid
and its vaporized phase. The prevailing pressure is called vapor pressure. It is substance specific and temperature-dependent. When a fluid is heated in a closed tank, the pressure
increases as the temperature rises. Theoretically, the pressure increase is possible up to the
critical point at which the densities of the fluid and gaseous phases are equal. Fluid and
vapor are then no longer distinguishable from each other. This knowledge is applied in
practice in process technology for freeze drying or pressure cooking. The SMT-HT-06
experimental unit can be used to demonstrate the relationship between the pressure and
temperature of water in a straightforward manner. Temperatures of up to 200°C are possible
for recording the vapor pressure curve. The temperature and pressure can be continuously
monitored via a digital temperature display and a Bordon tube pressure gauge.
