  • Optional SCF Carbon Dioxide (SFT-10) Pump and Co-Solvent Pumps

The HPR-Micro 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 only available in very limited supply. Both green and traditional organic solvents may be used.

The HPR-Micro Reactor™ comes standard with an Inconel 718 SS reactor vessel, 10, 25, 50 ml in volume, for operation up to 10,000 psi (689 Bar / 68.9 MPa) and -40°C to 100°C with heating/cooling jackets and ambient to 180°C with heating mantle. The vessel closure is of the hand-tight type where no wrenches are needed to make the closure. The reactor is equipped with a magnetically coupled stir bar for optimal mixing.

All high pressure components conform to ASME code standards and the reactor is protected from accidental over pressurization by a rupture disc assembly. The HPR-Micro Reactor™ is well suited to applications where repetitive use makes convenience a necessity. A few examples include: catalytic studies, polymerization, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, and dehydrogenation. All reactors are supplied as ready-to-use instruments, requiring only utility connections prior to operation. The HPR-Micro Reactor™ is compact and fits easily into a fume hood but also allows for the removal of the reactor assembly from the stand with associated valving to allow for anaerobic reagent loading in a glove box.
