FTIR Reaction Monitor offers reliable use without nitrogen.
Press Release Summary:
November 21, 2012 - Providing alternative to traditional MCT detectors in situations where liquid nitrogen is too costly or unsafe for routine use, ReactIR™ 15 Stirling Engine (SE) MCT model eliminates associated alignment, gas purge, and maintenance issues to accelerate and simplify setup. Size, weight, and design facilitate transfer from hood-to-hood or lab-to-lab, while range of sampling technology enables operators to begin experimentation immediately. Refilling of dewar is not required.

Stirling Engine Configuration for ReactIR 15(TM): Reliable Use Without Nitrogen
Press release date: November 8, 2012
Along with easier set-up and less maintenance, customers have the same functional performance from the solid-state SE MCT that they would by using a nitrogen-cooled model. The size, weight and design of ReactIR™ 15—and, with SE, the absence of nitrogen-handling concerns—enables easy transfer from hood-to-hood or lab-to-lab and with a wide range of sampling technology, operators can begin experimentation immediately. Ease-of-use is further enhanced for experiments running longer than 24 hours because no refilling of the dewar is required.
Coupled with METTLER TOLEDO iC IRTM software, ReactIR™ 15 offers immediate insight into reaction initiation, endpoint, mechanism, pathway and kinetics required for successful compound development. Users can even set an automatic shut-down the instruments user preferences to extend the reactor’s working lifetime, further protecting the lab’s capital investment.
Adding iC Kinetics™ provides an in-depth graphic visualization of reaction characteristics. Based on the results, operators can make decisions regarding experiment optimization quickly, enhancing speed-of-development in today’s competitive organic chemistry marketplace.
