Chemisens Calorimeter

The Chemisens Calorimeter is the most sophisticated, powerful, and accurate reaction calorimeter available. The Chemisens Calorimeter uses a unique True Heat Flow Measurement technology to enable real-time precision analysis.

At a glance

The Chemisens Calorimeter can provide calorimetry data on processes that other systems struggle with.  Examples of such processes are those at reflux, high pressure, or when a phase change occurs during the course of the reaction.  Accurate data from these processes are achieved due to the innovative True Heat Flow Measurement technology that the system operates.  Therefore, the Chemisens Calorimeter is the ideal choice for chemical process development, reaction kinetic studies, low-energy process monitoring, and process safety data generation.

Syrris Chemisens Key Feature - Pressure Meter

1. Accurate real-time heat flow measurements

The Chemisens Calorimeter is unique; the only system on the market at this scale to analyze the True Heat of the chemical process.  Simply start the software and the system records accurate real-time heat flow measurements.  The system measure and logs more than 50 reaction parameters providing a comprehensive analysis of your process.

2. No calibrations required

Traditional reaction calorimeters require calibration before and after the reaction resulting in long run times and resulting data can be subject to interpretation due to baseline changes.  Due to the innovative measurement technology, the Chemisens calorimeter comes fully pre-calibrated saving valuable time and importantly providing the most accurate data possible.

3. Precise measurements of difficult processes

The Chemisens Calorimeter can succeed where other calorimeters fall short.  It is essential that accurate thermal data is achieved from processes at reflux or those where phase changes occur.  It is this reason that the system is the primary solution for processes such as polymerization.  In addition, it is the ideal choice for high-pressure reactions where it can operate to 20 bar as standard (or 100 bar as an option).

4. Small reactor volume

It is vital for many processes to start with very small reactor volumes before the addition of your subsequent reagents.  The unique reactor can provide accurate heat measurements in volumes as little as 10 mL.  This results in low raw material consumption, minimized waste, reduced experiment times, and increases safety when investigating highly exothermic processes. The reactor’s volume is 250 mL, usable volume range is from 10 to 180 mL.

5. Investigate low energy reactions

The Chemisens Calorimeter will provide the most sensitive and accurate measurements possible and is therefore ideal for monitoring low energy processes.  Smallest detectable heat measurement is <2 Joule with a resolution better than 1%.  Power measurement better than ±0.0001 W (using the specialized HighSens reactor) and ±0.01 W (using standard reactor).

6. Advanced software suite for smooth workflow

Chemisens systems are delivered with proprietary ChemiCall software suite, including specialized CCReport data evaluation software with integrated report creation. The software allows logging and real-time monitoring of up to 50 parameters, control of dosing equipment, and setting up controller loops (e.g. for maintaining constant pressure in the vessel). Moreover, the ProFind module allows the creation of automated processes with logical programming, allowing for truly walk-away experiments.

Chemisens truly is the most accurate reaction calorimeter available on the market.  Our customers love it!”
