High power heaters and active air cooling provide rapid transfer of heat into and out of reactors
The Asia Heater can accommodate a range of flow reactor sizes, types and materials
Syrris, a UK provider of laboratory scale flow chemistry systems, has developed the Asia Heater, which combines a wide variety of chemical reactions and ease of use with proprietary technology to allow automation of experiments with or without a PC.
The Asia Heater can accommodate a range of flow reactor sizes, types and materials – such as glass, metal and fluoropolymer – using quick clip on/off adaptors. It allows reactions using heterogeneous catalysts or solid supported reagents and scavengers to be heated to 150°C, with tube reactors and microreactors able operate at temperatures as high as 250°C.
High power heaters and active air cooling provide rapid transfer of heat into and out of reactors for excellent temperature control, improving the yield and consistency of exothermic or endothermic reactions.
For greater efficiency, the Asia Heater can be used with an Asia Pressure Controller, enabling solvents to be superheated within a pressurised system and allowing processes to be performed thousands of times faster than at atmospheric pressure for more efficient, cleaner reactions.
Syrris products include fully automated batch reactor products (Atlas), a manually operated jacketed reactor platform (Globe) and flow chemistry systems (Asia and Africa).
