BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Liquidity Services (NASDAQ:LQDT), in partnership with Louisiana Chemical Equipment Company, is selling two unused, high-pressure reactors fabricated in 2010 by Kobe Steel Japan, each ASME stamped. The reactors, which have been stored under nitrogen purge, will be sold through Liquidity Services’ newest online auction marketplace,, and is open for bidding starting January 13, 2021.
