Asynt Launches Flexible High Pressure Parallel Reactor
9 Apr 2019
Asynt announces Multicell PLUS - a high pressure parallel reactor system with a wide choice of configurations for optimised screening of chemical reactions.
Constructed as standard from durable 316 stainless steel, the device can, depending on the configuration chosen, be used to screen 4, 6, 8 or 10 parallel reactions. A choice of cell size allows the user to perform reactions in parallel with volumes ranging from 30 to 100ml, at pressures of up to 100 bar and temperatures of 300 °C. It can be used simply with a hotplate stirrer, for heating only, or can be upgraded to allow for individual heating of every reactor cell. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures the Multicell Plus can be supplied with connections for an external circulator.
Each reactor cell is supplied with multiple inlet/outlet ports to allow for individual optimisation of the reactor configuration. The system can be customised with multi zone heating, individual overhead stirrer drives, cell charging and sampling apparatus, as well as cell-to-cell isolation to allow for differing chemistries and reaction conditions to be employed without the risk of cross-contamination.
Asynt can also supply the versatile high-pressure parallel reactor in alternative materials including Hastelloy, Inconel, Titanium and alloy steels, allowing for greater heat capacity and use with particularly corrosive or caustic chemicals.
Designed for easy set-up, reactors conform to a wide range of national and international safety standards, including the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED), Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR) and British Compressed Gases CP4 Rev2 (1998).
