Upgrade Kit OptiMax HFCal - Overview - METTLER TOLEDO

OptiMax HFCal

Turning OptiMax into a Calorimeter.

Upgrade your synthesis workstation

With just a few simple steps you can extend your OM to a powerful reaction calorimeter. The package is Plug&Play and installed in minutes.

Non-scaleable conditions become visible

OptiMax™ HFCal provides you with the answers to bring chemical processes into production quickly and safely avoiding failures at scale

Calorimetry – simple and accurate

Powerful heating and cooling combined with the Plug&Play calorimetry module guarantee the determination of accurate and repeatable heat information
