Leading chemistry product innovator, Syrris, has developed optional upgrades to its range of Atlas automated synthesis systems. The introduction of new stainless steel reactors and a high temperature upgrade kit has increased system flexibility, making the Atlas product range suitable for a broader spectrum of applications.
Using the same jacketed vessel clamp, oil drain unit and fluid pipe connectors as the Atlas Potassium system, the standard glass vessel can be effortlessly exchanged for the stainless steel version in under a minute. Available in a range of sizes from 100 ml to 5 L, an integrated bottom outlet valve compensates for any thermal expansion, while the torispherical profile and consistent length to diameter ratio mimic the dimensions of large-scale plant reactors. Ideal for use with sodium hydroxide and other highly basic substances that would etch glass, the incorporation of the stainless steel vessel further increases the flexibility and usability of the Atlas range.
The development of a new temperature upgrade kit has also enabled the Atlas glass or stainless steel jacketed reactors to increase the existing temperature range of -80 to +200 °C, to allow a limit of +250 °C, making it suitable for high temperature applications. All upgrade parts are easily installed by the user, without the need for any tools.
