Vapourtec has launched reactor housing for micromixer reactors to complement its standard, cooled, heated and photochemical range.
The company’s latest micromixer, which plugs easily into ports within the current flow chemistry systems, features chip reactors housed within a glass and PTFE manifold that offers clear visibility of the reactants.
A range of seven different glass micromixer reactor chips has been developed for use with the new housing.
Cooled gas is circulated around the micromixer chips to deliver temperatures as low as -40º C. Heated air, reaching temperatures up to 150º C, can also be circulated around the reactor.
Two chip reactors can be inserted into the housing, allowing one chip to be used for mixing and the other as a residence time chip.
In addition, multiple reactor housings can be used on either the Vapourtec R-Series or E-Series systems - allowing up to eight chips to be heated or cooled simultaneously and enabling the telescoping of flow reactions.
Vapourtec founder Duncan Guthrie said: “This is the latest addition to our range of continuous process reactors and it offers scope for chemists to explore smaller scale reactions.”
The seven chip reactors available cover volumes from 0.2ml to 1.7ml and provide options for one, two or three reagent inputs.
