FlowSyn is an integrated continuous flow reactor which has been designed to be easy to use and benefits from an embedded user control interface.
A pair of high pressure pumps are used to deliver reagent solutions from either stock bottles or sample injection loops through a 'T'-mixer into the electrically heated flow reactors. Reactions can be heated to 260°C and 150°C in the coil and column reactor modules respectively. Back pressure regulators of up to 1000 psi are used to pressurise the system and thus perform superheating of solvents, allowing the chemist to access'microwave like' conditions with no limitation on scale.
FlowSyn is very easy to use with a high resolution user interface. The user is guided through the process for setting up a flow chemistry reaction by inputting parameters for reagent volumes, temperatures and reaction times. The user can choose to collect all of the reaction plug, or only the 'steady state' part. FlowSyn will then equilibrate and run the reaction, and finally flush the system through with solvent. Throughout FlowSyn will monitor the pressure of the system, and shut down if a problem occurs allowing FlowSyn to be safely run unattended.
Easy to use - Flow reaction parameters can be quickly entered via the user-friendly interface
Safety - All pressurised parts are located behind a protective safety shield. Active pressure monitoring system with safety cutouts as standard
Versatile - The FlowSyn can be quickly reconfigured to perform a range of different flow chemistries. Coil, column or glass chip reactors can be used.
Space saving - Compact footprint, fully integrated standard system
Efficiency - Offers complete unattended operation. System will equilibrate, run reaction and clean automatically
