SKU: UPR5000 Category: Tags: ,


The unit brings an additional educational dimension with an automated process with a supervision

  • Control panel
  • Supervision
  • Data acquisition

Multi-purpose automated reactor

  • The unit consists in one SS reactor, jacketed with heating and cooling area.
  • This design allows to heat, cool and maintain a set temperature.
  • Solid reagents are loaded through an accessible filling port on the cover.
  • One feeding funnel (filled under vacuum) is used to introduce liquid reagents inside the reactor.
  • A control valve allows accurate pouring of batch quantity of reagents or controlled pH based introduction.
  • During distillation, the reflux head is used to varie the reflux ratio from Zero to total reflux.
  • This ratio is set from the control panel (view on HMI).
  • The distillate is collected in 2 receiving funnels for which the filling is automated:
    • A level detection on the first one allows to detect if the capacity is full and to switch to the second one.
  • The management of the first receiver is fully automated (filling, vacuum, draining etc…).
  • The second receiver is manual and used as a buffer.

Run the following operations

  • Liquid-liquid mixing or solid-liquid dissolution.
  • Evaporation, concentration.
  • Reaction, synthesis.
  • Decantation, crystallization.
  • Distillation.

Use a SCADA controlled unit

  • Run the process.
  • Control of parameters.
  • Record experimental data.

Create automated sequences

  • Introduction reactant.
  • Distillation according head temperature.
  • Cooling.
  • High level alarms management.
  • Automated draining during under vacuum process.
