New Reaction Calorimeter Speeds and Streamlines Optimization
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to launch OptiMax HFCal. This newly-designed heat flow calorimeter is the latest addition to the reaction calorimeter product line. OptiMax HFCal offers highly intuitive operation so users can run experiments faster for significant resource savings. Quick, reliable heating and cooling add to the unit’s time-saving nature, making OptiMax HFCal a good investment for labs working under tight time-to-market or time-to-publish pressure.
A chemical reaction’s heat-related information is key to developing a safe, robust process—and the earlier this information can be evaluated, the faster the process can be transferred into large-scale production. OptiMax HFCal enables easy, rapid characterization of these process-safety parameters, including heat transfer, specific heat of reaction mass, isothermal and non-isothermal heat flow, enthalpy, and thermal conversion rates at all reaction stages. The electrical heating and Peltier cooling systems ensure precise temperature control from -40 to 180 ?C without cryostat and ice-bath maintenance for added time-savings and a smaller bench footprint.
Easy data-gathering is also critical for establishing reliable, repeatable calorimetric measurement. With OptiMax HFCal, all experiment data is recorded automatically, making processes traceable and reproducible. Upon experiment completion, relevant data can be summarized into tables and trend graphics with a single key-press. For further analysis or storage, OptiMax HFCal data can be managed securely using METTLER TOLEDO’s iC Data CenterTM  or easily exported to Excel®.
