Reaction calorimeter RC1e (3 L or 200 mL) is a high-performance thermostat that allows the development of chemical processes under the same conditions as in manufacture. With the software, used for RC1e, the whole process is controlled with precise thermostating (the temperature interval of thermostatic fluid from -90 °C to +250 °C), mixing, dosing and regulation of pressure in the reactor can also be controlled. In addition to controlling process parameters, RC1e also enables to see the thermodynamic properties of preparations and processes (exotherm, endotherm, cp of reactants and products).
The reactor is equipped with a scale or the possibility of thermogravimetric analysis, with the main requirements being a relatively wide range of operating temperatures, pressures and flows of carrier gases. Another essential feature is the possibility of introducing one or more other aggressive (oxidative, reductive, corrosive ...) gases into the reactor part without damaging the scale.
