Syrris will be launching Orb, a novel jacketed reactor system at the 250th American Chemical Society Meeting and Exposition on the 16th of August 2015. Orb combines exceptional value and high-quality construction with unique user-friendly features and reliable performance for batch chemistry. Designed for process development and kilo labs, the compact benchtop system is ideal for numerous applications, including production, crystallizations, process development, workups, reaction optimization, distillations, and bioreactions.

The Orb jacketed reactor system accommodates a broad selection of jacketed and vacuum jacketed vessels from 100 ml up to 10 l, and can be operated over a wide range of temperatures – between -90 and +250 °C – and pressures from 50 mbara to 0.25 barg. Its intuitive, patent-pending clamp mechanism enables vessels to be quickly and easily changed and is complemented by a simple stirrer motor lift that allows the stirrer motor to be raised and rotated out of the way during vessel changes. Vessel height adjustment is also rapid and straightforward, with no tools required. Together with a comprehensive choice of accessories – including stirrers, circulators, reflux condensers, dropping funnels and distillation assemblies – and optional upgrades to allow automation of reaction parameters and rapid oil drain, Orb jacketed reactor systems can be used in virtually any application.
