Asynt's new ReactoMate Super laboratory reactor system combines all the technical features of the ReactoMate CLR (Controlled Lab Reactor) system with a new support system for handling larger glass vessels and reaction volumes up to 30 litres.

The company says it will appeal particularly to process development chemists working between research synthesis and pilot plant scale.

The ReactoMate Super offers clear open access to the reactor while remaining stable even with the heaviest of vessels. A built-in jacking system raises and lowers the vessel and all attached ancillaries easily and safely: this is especially useful when needing to charge or empty the vessel at a safe working height during operation.

Interchangeable support rings and quick-release clamps allow easy exchange of reaction vessels from 1 litre to 30 litres, and the compact dimensions permit installation in many standard fume cupboards.

Asynt’s new PTFE reaction vessel lids are also available for ReactoMate. Screw-in PTFE taper joints allow chemists to use standard jointed glassware and interchange the sizes used.

The company says PTFE lids have a lower profile than glass, which combined with a built-in stirrer guide significantly reduces the height of the reaction station, giving better accessibility and safety. PTFE also has better thermal insulation properties than glass.
