picoclave - small pressure reactor

Universal glass reactor / Metal laboratory pressure reactor

Reactor volume: 100 to 300 ml
Pressure: -1 to +150 bar
Temperature: -20 °C to +300 °C
Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3, stainless steel, Hastelloy®

Other materials, pressures & temperatures are available.

This multipurpose pressure reactor system is designed for the use of interchangeable glass and steel pressure vessels. Safety features guarantee safe reactions under pressure.

The glass reactors ensure high resistance against acids, while allowing visual process control and monitoring. It is also possible to use steel pressure vessels for high pressure reactions. The magnetic drive ensures efficient mixing and stirring of the process media as well as excellent heat transfer.

The Fast Action Closure makes changing vessels quick and easy without the use of tools.

The modular setup of the picoclave system allows changing or upgrading for new tasks at any time.

A wide range of accessories is available – talk to us to define the right setup for your specific need.
