The high-pressure experimental laboratory is designed to reproduce magmatic, metamorphic and hydrothermal conditions in the Earth's interior. It hosts stainless steel reactors for fluid-rock interaction, cold-seal pressure vessels (to 800 °C and 400 MPa) and a Johannes-type piston cylinder apparatus (to 1500 °C and 0.5-2.0 GPa). These instruments are used for studies of crystal-melt-fluid phase equilibria, element partitioning, crystallization kinetics and mineral solubilities in aqueous fluids.
