Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ HPR-Micro Reactor is a high-pressure reactor designed for small-batch reaction chemistry. It is well suited for research, process development, and screening applications for reagents, catalysts, and other essential materials when they aren’t readily available. The reactor comes with Stirred Iconel 718 Reactor Vessel in 10-mL, 25-mL, or 50-mL capacities, with operations up to 10,000 psi (689 Bar/68.9 MPa). An ergonomic design allows the reactor to be placed into a fume hood.

Optionally, a reagent injection manifold can be included to allow for the precise addition of reagents at any time during the reaction, with standard addition quantities of 2.0 mL, 1.0 mL, and 0.5 mL. The reactor is designed for use in “green” supercritical carbon dioxide including: catalytic studies, polymerization, hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, and dehydrogenation. All high-pressure components are ASME compliant with rupture disc assembly to increase safety.
