Simular | Process Development Reaction Calorimeter
The system is designed to closely match your plant conditions, then integrate them into a bench-scale system that is simple to operate and that provides data effortlessly. Typical design features that can be customized include temperature range, agitator type, stirring speed, reagent feed rate and even reactor geometry. It is widely regarded as the best, most flexible, reaction calorimeter available.
Multiple calorimetric methods
The Simular is designed to be used by both research chemists and safety specialists and this is claim is based around the technical features of the system. In particular, the Simular uses power compensation calorimetry as one of the techniques, unique to the Simular, and this allows accurate determination of heat release without the need for time-consuming calibration or complex calculation procedures.
Also heat flow calorimetry data, essentially the classic method traditionally used, is also supported as standard.
Safe process scale-up
One of the most important uses of reaction calorimetry is to scale-up stirred reactions safely and quickly. This is related to the fact that the Simular reports the rate of heat release as the reaction proceeds and if this rate is matched on the plant, safe operation is assured. The heat release rate directly determines the cooling duty specification for the larger scale reactor which is a key operational parameter.
Batch times are easily obtained from heat flow data and this also provides valuable information about the expectation after scale-up.
