High-Pressure Reactor supports early exploratory research.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for small batch reaction chemistry, HPR-Micro™ Reactor comes standard with inlet/outlet valves, pressure gauge, and 10 mL Inconel 625 stainless steel vessel for operation up to 10,000 psi. Magnetically coupled stirring optimizes mixing, while rupture disc assembly ensures safe operation. Depending upon temperature option selected, operation from -40 to +150°C is possible. Applications include catalytic studies, polymerization, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, and dehydrogenation.

SFT - HPR-Micro(TM) Reactor

Supercritical Fluid Technologies introduces a new, high pressure reactor specifically designed for small batch reaction chemistry.  The HPR-MicroTM Reactor is the ideal high pressure reactor for early, exploratory research.  It is especially well suited for research, process development, and screening applications when reagents, catalysts, or other essential materials are expensive or available in very limited supply.

The HPR-Micro Reactor comes standard with a 10 milliliter Iconel 625 stainless steel reactor vessel for operation up to 10,000 psi (689 Bar / 68.9 MPa), inlet and outlet valves and a pressure gauge.  Depending upon the temperature option selected, operation from -40°C to 150°C is possible.  The vessel closure is the "hand tight" type where no wrenches are needed. The reactor is equipped with magnetically coupled stirring for optimal mixing.  All high pressure components are ASME compliant designed and overall assembly is protected by a rupture disc assembly for safe operation.  The Micro Reactor is compact and can fit into a fume hood.  The Micro Reactor can be easily removed from the mounting stand and brought to a glove box for reactant and reagent loading under an inert atmosphere.

Multiple inlet ports are included for addition of solvents, reagents, or gases.  An optional Reagent Injection Manifold increases versatility by providing a means to add a precise amount of reagent at anytime during course of the reaction.  Standard addition quantities include 2.0, 1.0 and 0.5 milliliters. 

The HPR-MicroTM Reactor is well suited for applications in green solvents such as supercritical carbon dioxide as well as traditional organic solvents.  Common applications in "green" supercritical carbon dioxide include: Catalytic studies, polymerization, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, and dehydrogenation.
