Reaction Calorimetry with Simular

Reaction Calorimetry essential tool for Process R &amp D

A reaction calorimeter is a tool that allows for the precise control of chemical reactions while at the same time generating heat flow data. Typically, it is based around a 1 litre stirred vessel and it normally has control of temperature, dosing, stirring and other relevant variables such as pH. The key applications of the data are process safety and process development/optimisation especially in relation to scale up.

The system requires no specialist knowledge to setup experiments and obtain calorimetry data. Results are available immediately with real-time reporting and built-in calculations eliminating the need for off-line analysis. The simular is an ideal tool for Specialists and General chemists alike.

SIMULAR built around a jacketed laboratory reactor platform - Delivering flexibility of operation without compromise on data quality. Combining HEL's unique modular electronics and the latest in-house developed WinISO software, to provide you with a tool that meets your requirements, both now, and into the future.

Select the components that most closely match your plant conditions, then combine them to have a dedicated, simple-to operate tool that simulates your plant and process.This includes temperature range, agitation, speed, reagent feed rate and even reactor geometry - find out why we offer the best, most flexible, reaction calorimeter for your application.

  • Multiple calorimetric methods

Unlike most leading reaction calorimeters, SIMULAR is designed to be used by research chemists and safety specialists alike.This is made possible by power compensation calorimetry, unique to the SIMULAR.This allows accurate determination of heat release without the need for time-consuming calibration or complex calculation procedures.

Of course for those users who want the classical heat flow calorimetry method, that is also supported as standard.

  • Safe process scale-up

The most common application of a reaction calorimeter is to determine the rate of heat release during a process. From this, the cooling duty required for scale up can be calculated. In addition the potential adiabatic temperature rise can be calculated. Combined with other techniques, a basis for safety can therefore be determined.

Further information available includes the determination of reagent accumulation and the impact of variables such as agitation and catalyst upon the reaction rate. By changing feed rates and batch temperature, the optimum operating conditions for both efficiency and product quality, can be determined.
