High Pressure Chemical Reactors
The HPR-Series of pressure chemical reactors is designed for researchers who are interested in investigating the feasibility of pressurised chemical reactions or processing problems in their laboratories. Whether it is repetitive pressurised laboratory chemical synthesis, teaching laboratory applications, or process development, the HPR-Series is an excellent unit for your application needs.
The HPR reactors range in size from 50 ml to 8 litres and may be operated up to 10,000 psi and 350°C. Two standard pressure vessel types are available. Bolted closures may be operated up to 2350 psi and 350°C. Hand-tight closures may be operated up to 10,000 psi and 200°C. Other custom vessels for specialised applications are available.
The reactors are equipped with magnetically coupled impellers for optimal mixing. All high pressure components are ASME compliant design (code stamp available) and protected by a rupture disc for safe operations. These laboratory bench top models are ideal for applications where repetitive use makes convenience a necessity. A few examples include: catalytic studies, polymerisation, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerisation, and dehydrogenation. All size reactors are supplied as ready-to-use instruments requiring only utility connections prior to operation.
The reactors are compact instruments that fit easily into a fume hood. Their modular design makes it easy and cost effective to alter the unit’s basic configuration, adapting it to meet new or evolving application needs.
All functions are controlled by an integrated processor with a full colour touch screen: Closed loop temperature control, closed loop speed control, pressure indication, over-temperature limit control, ramp/soak programming of temperature and mixer speed. An RS-232 communications port provides the ability to export data to an external computer.
Options for the HPR Series Reactors include: vessel windows, sapphire windows, additional ports, cooling coils, sample loops, baffles, and reagent addition modules.

- Operate up to 10,000 psi (689 Bar / 68.9 MPa) and 350°C
- Magnetic drive mixing
- Safety rupture disc assembly

- Optional vessel windows (up to 150°C operation)
The HPR-Micro Reactor™ is the ideal high pressure reactor for early, exploratory research. It is especially well suited for research, process development, and screening applications when reagents, catalysts, or other essential materials are expensive or only available in very limited supply. Both green and traditional organic solvents may be used.
The HPR-Micro Reactor™ comes standard with an Inconel 718 SS reactor vessel, 10, 25, 50 ml in volume, for operation up to 10,000 psi (689 Bar / 68.9 MPa) and -40°C to 100°C with heating/cooling jackets and ambient to 180°C with heating mantle. The vessel closure is of the hand-tight type where no wrenches are needed to make the closure. The reactor is equipped with a magnetically coupled stir bar for optimal mixing.
All high pressure components conform to ASME code standards and the reactor is protected from accidental over pressurization by a rupture disc assembly. The HPR-Micro Reactor™ is well suited to applications where repetitive use makes convenience a necessity. A few examples include: catalytic studies, polymerization, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, and dehydrogenation. All reactors are supplied as ready-to-use instruments, requiring only utility connections prior to operation. The HPR-Micro Reactor™ is compact and fits easily into a fume hood but also allows for the removal of the reactor assembly from the stand with associated valving to allow for anaerobic reagent loading in a glove box.
