 R4 Reactor Heater Module



Though the R4 heater is generally used as part of an integrated R Series system, it can also be used as a stand alone reaction heater.

• Excellent visibility. The novel design of the glass heat exchangers ensures the entire working volume of the reactor is visible at all times.

• Precise temperature control. The true temperature of each reactor is measured and controlled.  Not only that, but the whole reactor is kept at a uniform temperature.

• 4 Independently heated zones. The temperature of each reactor can be set independently. 

• Max temperature 250oC. For channels 1 & 3, the range is ambient to 150oC, for channels 2 & 4 it is  ambient to 250oC

• Max temperature -70oC. For channels 1,3 & 4, there is the option of a cooling module.

• Accepts both column and tube type reactors. Reactors for either heterogeneous flow or homogeneous flow can be "plugged-in".

• Rapid response. Rates of temperature change between setpoints of up to 80oC / minute.   When cooling, a reactor can go from ambient to -70oC in 16 mins.  

• Active cooling, even for heated reactors. 
After a 250oC reaction, cooling down to a safe handling temperature takes approx 7 minutes.   

• Compact size. A single R-4 offers 4 independently heated reactors within a small footprint. Multiple R-4s can be stacked.
