Syrris is pleased to announce the launch of its state-of-the-art Atlas Cryo Reactor, providing exceptional cooling capability down to -80 °C. The latest in a series of innovative new products released during 2014, the high performance Atlas Cryo Reactor was unveiled at the 248th American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition, held in San Francisco, USA, from the 10th to the 14th August.
The Atlas Cryo Reactor, a compact unit just 16 cm (6.3 inches) wide, offers exceptional, trouble-free cooling of a range of round bottom flasks. Designed specifically for chemistry, it is ideal for processes such as Grignard, diazotization and aldol reactions, ortho metalations, Friedel-Crafts acylations, Michael additions and Birch reductions. Its sophisticated proprietary cooling technology and ‘in reactor’ temperature probe ensure accurate control of temperatures from +10 to 80 °C using mains power only; no dry ice, liquid nitrogen, or water circulator required. Clip-on adapters and a quick latch mechanism enable the use of 100 or 500 ml flasks that can be exchanged in seconds, with no tools required. Powerful stirring up to 1,200 rpm is provided by the integrated magnetic stirrer; optional auto-aligning overhead stirring up to 800 rpm is also available. In addition, the system can be upgraded to include automated dosing, and pH monitoring and control. The Atlas Cryo Reactor is easy to use as a stand-alone module or, with other Atlas modules, can be connected to Atlas PC Software for full process automation, graphical display of reaction parameters and data logging of results.
