Dosing chemical reactors at high flow rates

Paul Boughton
Syrris, designer and manufacturer of laboratory scale chemistry reactors, has created the Atlas Syringe Pump XL. This pump, which is extremely chemically resistant, allows automated volumetric dosing from 100µl/min to 200 ml/min, providing ultimate flexibility for automated chemistry applications.

The Atlas Syringe Pump XL features two syringes which can be independently controlled or combined to enable continuous flow at pressures up to 6 bar. Its embedded computer and range of accessories allow it to independently automate sophisticated additions, sample into vials at user-defined intervals or automatically dose acids or bases to maintain a user-defined pH, with built-in safety features to pause the process in the event of an exothermic reaction exceeding a predefined temperature.

For even greater control, it can be connected to an Atlas Base Unit, Reactor Master or PC to allow coordination of automated dosing/sampling with other process parameters, such as heating and stirring.
