Asynt has collaborated with The University of Nottingham to bring their expertise & respect for the safety aspects of working at high pressure in the laboratory to the general market in the form of PressureSyn, an accessible benchtop scale high pressure reactor, with novel safety features built-in.
With a vessel volume of 125 mL, maximum working pressure of 180 bar and temperature of 200 °C with heating via any hotplate & stirring via magnetic flea, what’s significant about PressureSyn is the unique safety key & locking clamp mechanism that does not allow the vessel cover to be removed whilst any pressure remains in the system. Every safety key & clamp are unique therefore ensuring that it cannot be undone with a spare, and include features which automatically release any residual pressure prior to removing the cover. This high-safety single laboratory pressure reactor also features a double pressure relief system with both a bursting disk & pressure relief valve.
PressureSyn units are designed to work on any magnetic hotplate stirrer; a special DrySyn adapter plate allows the secure placement of the reactors on the hotplate stirrer; together with enhanced temperature transfer and the ability to control external temperature from a standard 3mm thermocouple.
