Low cost, entry level, 2 channel flow chemistry system
- 2 High pressure pumps with integrated pressure transducers
- HotCoil™ heated coil reactor station
- FlowLab™ automated system control software with data logging
- Wi-Fi remote control
- Quickly save and reload experiments
- Supplied with 5.0ml stainless and 5.0ml PTFE coil reactors and back pressure regulator
FlowLab™ is an affordable and easy-to-use entry level flow chemistry system that is ideal for education, training
and for those wishing to try flow chemistry without the associated costs of a sophisticated fully automatic system.
The system comprises of 2 high pressure pumps, a HotCoil™ coil reactor station and FlowLab system control
software. A 5ml PTFE and a 5ml 316L stainless steel coil reactor and a fixed back pressure regulator (BPR) are
included. The computer, pumps and HotCoil are connected over a LAN using an Ethernet HUB. In this way, the
system can be operated remotely by Wi-Fi allowing the control computer to be conveniently positioned outside the
fume cupboard and away from chemicals.
Optionally available, as shown above, are a stand and 4 position manual PTFE inlet valves for each pump.
The pumps have a combined flow rate range of 0.01 to 20 ml/min and will operate up to 100 bar (200bar is
available as an option). Each pump has a built in pressure transducer and safe operating pressure limits can be set
by the user. The reagents are mixed at a “T”-piece and then flow through the coil reactor and into a collection
botlle. Back pressure is set by a fixed back pressure regulator cartridge positioned in-line with the flow stream.
The FlowLab application affords control of the system via a ‘step-through’ interface that is straighforward to use.
Specific control screens allow users to modify system settings and perform automated priming and wash functions
in addition to designing new, or loading previous, experiments. Reactions can be run automatically on a time basis,
and reaction progress is monitored in real-time from a plot of temperature and pressures. The reagents used can
be entered in text fields and logged data is automatically saved.
For operational safety, FlowLab software monitors pressure and temperature and will automatically shut down if
there is a blockage, leakage or overheating.
