Syrris: Launches Glass Pressure Reactor System

Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris has launched the Atlas Potassium Pressure System, a modular 3 bar pressure reactor. With the ability to be controlled automatically or manually, this easy-to-use system can be supplied with glass vessels ranging from 100 ml to 3 litres, which can be changed in less than one minute. Designed for applications where elevated pressures are required, the Potassium Pressure System is ideal for protocols requiring hydrogenation, carbonylation etc.

Offering powerful overhead stirring and a temperature range of -80 to +200 °C, the basic system provides automatic temperature and stirrer control, as well as pressure sensing. In addition, PED/ASME compliance, a burst disc and pressure relief valve makes the system extremely safe. Modes of operation include: manual pressure control, automatic pressure maintenance, pressure control with mass flow monitoring, mass flow control and off gas monitoring.

Control via the Atlas base can be manual or automated, enabling the simple logging of all data to a .csv file, which is easily downloadable to a USB stick. In addition, optional PC control offers advanced functionality, including the complete automation of all parameters, alarms and real-time graphs.
