Atlas is the most flexible and easy to use jacketed reactor system available. Its modularity allows control of single or parallel jacketed automated reactors with volumes from 50ml to 5 litres. Systems can either be manually controlled, automatically controlled by the Atlas Base or fully automated using the Atlas PC Software.
Atlas systems are used in a wide range of applications including:
Process analytical technology
Crystallization control and analysis
All Atlas jacketed chemical reactor systems are based on the Atlas Potassium System, which can be upgraded to more advanced systems (see the links on the right hand side under Atlas Jacketed Reactors).
Reactors from 50ml to 5 litres in glass, stainless steel or hastelloy can be quickly and safely interchanged without tools due to the circulator fluid drain, quick release vessel clamp, auto aligning stirrer and quick connect fluid hoses.
Without a PC, the intelligent base can control circulator or reaction temperature, overhead stirrer speed and reagent addition from a pump. All sensors such as temperature probes, pH sensors and turbidity probes are automatically detected when connected to the base.
All sensor data and setpoints are displayed on the base in real time, automatically logged and can be downloaded as one csv file to a USB stick.
Atlas Jacketed Reactor Systems can be controlled in 3 ways:
1) Manual Control from the Base Turn the control knob on the Atlas to change overhead stirrer speed and accurately control the reaction temperature. The Atlas base intelligently controls the circulator (by PID via RS232) to give the exact reactor temperature required.
2) Automation from the Base Edit and run profiles automatically from the base (without a PC) to control heating, cooling, stirring and reagent addition from the Atlas Syringe Pump.
3) PC Software Control Use full PC software for complex recipe control, real time data plotting and control of virtually any manufacturer’s RS232 controlled hardware. The software can also control many bases at a time with different profiles. Click here to see the Atlas Software.
The Atlas Syringe Pump offers automatic reagent dosing for simple additions. It can also provide sophisticated actions such as pH control and temperature controlled additions.
Controlled by the Atlas Base or used by itself, the versatile Syringe Pump can be configured into two independent refilling flows, one continuous flow or auto-sampling. When used with the base, heating, stirring and dosing profiles can be set and automatically run, without a PC.
The range of Atlas Jacketed Reactor Systems includes:
Custom Reactor Systems For jacketed process reactor systems that come outside the Atlas range (high temperature / pressure, volumes higher than 5 litres, etc), Syrris' custom reactor service enables development of laboratory reactors specific the customers needs.
