Typically constructed from durable 316 stainless steel - the High Pressure Parallel Reactor is designed as an affordable, compact unit that can be used to screen 10 x 30 ml reactions at pressures of up to 200 bar and temperatures of 320°C. The High Pressure Parallel Reactor can be used with a hotplate stirrer or can be customised to have more rapid heating and/or multiple temperature zones.
Users can customise the reactor with options including facilities for internal cell measurement, sealed sample/additions valves, condenser jackets, electrical heating options, liquid charging systems, gas supply/mixing systems, air driven stirrers, purged heating chambers, and many more. It can be built from alternative materials including Hastelloy, Inconel, Titanium and alloy steels, to enable greater heat capacity and use with particularly corrosive or caustic chemicals.
Reactors are designed to be extremely easy to set-up (one simple closure), with a fail-safe mechanism to protect the operator.
