Asynt adds PressureSyn high pressure reactor to product range

Suitable for stirred or non-stirred high pressure applications

The PressureSyn high pressure reactor

Asynt has added the PressureSyn, a 125ml working volume high pressure reactor, to its portfolio that is said to combine outstanding performance, ease of use and the highest level of operational safety.

Designed by chemists and engineers at the University of Nottingham in the UK, the PressureSyn reactor is suitable for stirred, or non-stirred, high pressure applications including hydrogenations, carbonylations, catalyst screening and polymerisations.

Engineered in 316 stainless steel, the standard safety features of PressureSyn include a bursting disk and pressure relief valve.

The PressureSyn reactor features a bracket and key operated locking system that ensures easy assembly. This novel clamping arrangement also prevents the clasp from being disassembled while the reactor is still under pressure. Each reactor's locking collar has a unique key, which means only that key can be used to open that specific individual reactor.

With customer safety paramount, each individual PressureSyn reactor is tested to 170bar, witnessed and certified by Zurich Insurance, and is rated for use up to a maximum pressure of 100bar and temperature of 200°C.

A special DrySyn adapter plate ensures secure placement of the PressureSyn to any standard hotplate stirrer, giving enhanced heat transfer and the ability to control temperature from the stirrer’s temperature probe. An optional PTFE reduction adapter/sleeve is available for small volume chemistry.
