Reaction calorimeter RC1e with in-situ FTIR (ReactIR 45 m) and FBRM (Lasentec D600 tip L) probes (Metler Toledo)

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).
