Launched last month, the Orb Pilot jacketed reactor is said to be a unique system that offers flexible and cost-effective pilot-scale batch chemistry. The Orb Pilot is a user-friendly, floor-standing scale-up jacketed reactor, and offers a choice of vessel sizes from 10 to 50 L on a single system. The reactor can operate at temperatures from –40 to 235°C. Available with a selection of single and vacuum-jacketed vessels, plus a wide range of accessories and stirring options, the Orb Pilot can be easily configured to match user’s requirements. — Syrris Ltd., Royston, U.K.
