PARR Series 4560 Mini Bench Top Reactors

PARR Series 4560 Mini Bench Top Reactors

 

These are the most popular of all Parr Stirred Reactors. Although they are called “Mini” reactors, they offer a range of sizes large enough to work with significant sample sizes, yet small enough to be handled with ease by all operators. They are made in both fixed head and moveable vessel styles, with a choice of either a self sealing O-ring closure with no cap screws for working temperatures up to 225 °C, or with a flat, PTFE gasket for higher temperatures up to 350 °C sealed with six cap screws in a split-ring cover clamp.

Choosing the high temperature option (HT) boosts the maximum temperature to 500 °C, but de-rates the MAWP to 2000 psi (138 bar). Standard Mini reactors can be converted to high temperature reactors (500 °C max temperature and 2000 psi MAWP) by changing the head openings to cone connections, replacing the valves with high temperature valves, replacing the gasket with a graphoil Flat Gasket, replacing the heater with a ceramic fiber heater, and replacing the split ring. Contact Parr for details.

Although internal and external space is limited in these small vessels, gas entrainment impellers, catalyst baskets, condensers and other options are available. All reactors in this series can also be easily converted from one size to another by simply substituting a longer or shorter cylinder with the corresponding internal fittings and heaters.

The support system for these Mini Reactors is designed specifically to provide stability at stirring speeds up to 1700 rpm, in a compact mounting small enough to fit into a laboratory hood. The support system can also be adapted to accept any of the smaller vessels from the 4590 Micro Reactor Series.

Series 4560 Reactor Ordering Guide

A composite identification number to be used when ordering a mini reactor can be developed by combining individual symbols from the separate sections.

Example
A 600 mL, T316SS, reactor with an O-ring gasket, 115 V explosion proof motor, 3000 psi gage and programmable controller with pressure display module would be listed as:
