Design of a temperature-controlled water bath for study of mineral phase equilibria in aqueous media is described. The bath consists of a polypropylene cylinder in which five polypropylene reaction vessels, providing a silicafree environment, are suspended. Temperatures ranging from 0 to 95 C (at 1 atm total pressure) can be maintained at approximately pulse or minus 0. 4 C for periods of months. Provision is made for sweeping a selected gas through the contents of any of the reaction vessels.
