The HPR-Micro Reactor is a high-pressure reactor specifically designed for small-batch reaction chemistry, and is well suited for research, process-development and screening applications when reagents, catalysts or other essential materials are expensive or available in very limited supply. The HPR-Micro Reactor comes standard with a 10-mL reactor vessel for operation up to 10,000 psi, inlet and outlet valves and a pressure gage. Optional 25-mL and 50-mL vessels are also available. Depending upon the temperature option selected, operation from –40 to 150°C is possible. The vessel closure is hand-tight, so no wrenches are needed. The reactor is equipped with magnetically coupled stirring for optimal mixing, and the overall assembly is protected by a rupture-disc assembly. Multiple inlet ports are included for addition of solvents, reagents or gases. — Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc., Newark, Del.
