FlowCAT SA | Semi Automated Flow Reactor
The Semi-Automated FlowCAT SA For Continuous Flow Catalytic Reactions
The HEL FlowCAT SA (Semi-Automated) is a stripped-back, low price, a bench-top platform enabling continuous flow heterogeneous catalysis for use in applications including hydrogenation, carbonylation, oxidation and is widely used in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries.
The FlowCAT SA provides a more focused set of working conditions, and the control is semi-automated. The compact mechanical design is of the same quality and robustness (of the original FlowCAT), but working pressure and the temperature are defined using local digital controllers (instead of through software).
Liquid-gas reactions at quite extreme conditions (up to 300 ⁰C and 100 bar) are supported. The maximum operating conditions for the FlowCAT SA are lower than for the automated FlowCAT, which is more than adequate for most processes.
The FlowCAT SA is an excellent addition to any lab for around half the price of the standard FlowCAT.
