A large portfolio of small, medium and large sized lab   reactors support your application across a large temperature   and pressure range. The vessels are made from glass or   metal. All our vessels are especially designed for heat flow   calorimetry. Optionally, the ambient and medium pressure   vessels are equipped with real time heat measurement.
Dosing Options
Sophisticated gravimetric and volume dosing solutions ensure accurate and timely addition of reagents
Pressure Options

Measure and control pressure precisely from 0 to 100 bar
Gas Uptake Set

Knowing the gas consumption is essential for reactions that use reactive gases. Manual or fully automated versions of the gas uptake set provide you with the necessary information online.
Reflux and distillation operation with and without calorimetry
Precise measurement of pH or turbidity with METTLER TOLEDO sensors
The Universal Control Box (UCB) connects with any METTLER TOLEDO and third party sensors and control devices that comes with a standard interface


Heat Flow
Determine precise thermodynamic data quickly for isothermal, isoperibolic or adiabatic experiments.  The embedded reactor models ensure robust and accuratedata also for non-isothermal experiments
Makes calorimetric calibrations faster and saves time with heat flow experiment
A leading edge technology providing heat flow data in real time without calibrations.  RTCal enables optimization of reactions online and to make process adjustments in real time


iControl RC1
The control and data evaluation software combines flexibility, ease-of-use, and sophistication while supporting the entire workflow in the chemical and process development lab.
iC Safety
An essential tool to assess thermal risks of a chemical reaction, iC Safety provides the commonly use "safety runaway" and "criticality" graphs.  iC Safety can be used by novices and advances users
