Glass chip reactors and mixers – Features

r4chipreactor

New Micromixers available

In addition to the standard, cooled, heated and photochemical reactors, Vapourtec now offer a Micromixer reactor manifold. In common with the Vapourtec family of reactors the new micromixer reactor simply plugs into the ports in the R4.

The chip reactors are housed inside a glass manifold offering excellent visibility of the reactants.

  • Cooled gas is circulated around the reactor to provide temperatures from ambient to and -40°C. The gas is provided by Vapourtec cooling module.
  • The micromixer reactor can also reach temperatures up to 150°C from heated air which is circulated around the reactor.
    Two chip reactors can be inserted into the micromixer manifold, therefore, one chip can be used for mixing the other as a residence time chip. The thermocouple sits directly on the reactor wall and feeds back to heater control.

Range of microreactors

Each microchip reactor comes in a default size of 115 x 60 x 6mm. The structure of the channels varies depending on what conditions and mixing type required.
