Autoclave for polymerisation with distillation set-up

Complete with integrated system for adding gases and fluids

This customized polyclave pressure reactor for a polymerisation process is equipped with a glass distillation set-up (atmospheric) for the addition of gases and liquids. A flowmeter with needle valves ensures highly precise dosing of gas. Various safety features have been built in to be able to operate under both atmospheric and high pressure conditions.

In addition, the system has been prepared to be extended with a fluid dosing system. A tray is already included for this suurDOS®.

Reactor vessel
For this set-up a type 1B glass reactor was chosen. This double walled vessel is executed with a bottom valve and suitable for pressures up to 6 bar.

Lift and fast action closure
The polyclave is executed with a lift and fast-action-closure. Ideal for simple and safe opening of the vessel; a safety mechanism prevents the vessel to be opened under high pressure.

Distillation set-up
The distillation set-up is a standard solution offered by Büchi and executed with Büchiflex couplings. This makes the glass construction flexible and parts can easily be exchanged or added.

A graphite breakplate in the glass system ensures that pressure is relieved in the atmospheric system; an extra safety feature in case the pressure becomes too high for the glass.

Ball valve
Between the glass distillation system and the high pressure reactor, a ball valve is installed. By manually switching, the atmospheric distillation system can be blocked in case of increased pressure in the reactor. This gives opportunity to operate the reactor both under vacuum circumstances and under high pressure conditions.

Magnetically coupled stirrer drive
For stirring, an inline drive is foreseen with a magnetic coupling of 800 Nm with ball bearings (to be able to reach a higher rpm).

In 2018, the 19th edition of the annual trade fair for laboratory professionals will be held in Thursday the 15th and Friday the 16th of March in Brussels Kart Expo in Groot-Bijgaarden. Laborama Expo brings together a whole host of suppliers for your every laboratory need, going from analytical equipment, software and lab furniture to consumables, chemicals and many more. Go take a look in the “Products & Services” section under the catalogue tab do discover the variety of products and brands that will be on show in 2018. During Laborama Expo 2018 we’ll see the return of the 2 Live Labs, albeit with an adapted concept. The live demonstrations will all be separate to allow the visitors to pick and choose the ones to their liking. In addition to the Live Labs, visitors can also participate in 2 routes. The Water Route takes the visitor on a trip through the venue to visit exhibitors with products or services for water research and treatment. In the Life Science Route, exhibitors that are active in the field of life sciences, present their newest measuring methods and analysis techniques. Be sure to not miss out on the seminars during Laborama Expo 2018. With speakers such as Iwan de Koning from Janssen Pharmaceutice and professors Jan Tytgat (KUL) and Peter Van Eenoo (UGent), the Conference Room will be buzzing with activity. New this year is the Nova Square, where visitors can discover companies that are new to Laborama Expo. Recycling and sustainability remain a focus of Laborama Expo. In 2018, the Recupel Drive In returns to the Laborama Expo parking lot. In this collection point for small laboratory equipment, visitors can drop off their old equipment prior to their visit to the trade fair.

Polymerization reactor for polyolefin synthesis When reality deviates from spec
Polymerization reactor for polyolefin synthesis
When reality deviates from spec The inquiry seemed relatively simple: “We’re looking for a glass or metal polymerization reactor; plus a frame, agitator, gas regulator and probably a thermostat. We want to use tit for research into the synthesis of polyolefins.” No problem for Autoclave; after all, 95% of its deliveries are customer-specific solutions. However, when the fume cupboard dimensions turned out to be very different from the original spec, it became quite a challenge. In the end, it was a collaboration between Autoclave, two departments of Büchi, and thermostat supplier Huber that came up with the ideal solution. Within the University of Maastricht, Dario Romano and his colleagues conduct research into the synthesis of polyolefins. As part of their investigations, they test existing and new catalytic systems for the synthesis of both olefin and bio-based polymers. The materials produced by these processes vary from basic plastics (feedstocks) to polymers for high-end engineering applications;
