Parr Reactors now available with Hydrogen Generator

Parr reactors are commonly used for hydrogenation applications. In some situations, the use of hydrogen tanks may not be feasible. Parr systems are now available with the H-Genie® Hydrogen Generator as a solution to eliminate the need for hydrogen cylinders.

Catalyst Loading Toolkit for Tubular Reactors

Catalyst Loading Toolkit for 5401 Tubular Reactor
Catalyst Loading Toolkit

Loading or removing a fixed bed (aka packed bed) of bulk solids such as powdered catalyst deep inside a long narrow tubular reactor at a precise repeatable depth can be challenging. Parr has created the Catalyst Loading Toolkit to facilitate loading of catalyst in the annulus of our tubular reactors and easily adjust the location and length of the catalyst packing.

Reaction Calorimetry Capability Added to Parr Reactors

Parr 4540, 1.2 L Reactor, with H2 and liquid feeds, equipped for Power Compensation CalorimetryParr has integrated the principles and practice of reaction calorimetry into our reactor systems.

Reaction calorimetry is often used for studying chemical reaction rates and the thermal properties of systems. In chemical processing industries, this technique is used for understanding and mitigating hazards from the scale-up of reactions developed in the lab to industrial-scale reactors. As a reaction is scaled from lab to plant, scalability problems may emerge for various reasons. Issues are often attributable to a lack of understanding of the process chemistry, the inability to remove heat or changes in mixing performance during scale-up. Reaction calorimetry provides this additional level of process understanding.

The principal output from experiments performed in a reaction calorimeter is the heat production rate associated with the processes occurring inside the reactor. The heat production profile becomes the basis for the determination of a number of important operational parameters.

Large Volume Stirred Reactor Systems

Parr's new 50 L & 100 L high pressure stirred reactors are ideally suited for scale up or pilot work. The geometry, features, and operation are very similar to that of smaller Parr reactors, but with a volume intermediate between lab-scale and traditional production scale stirred reactors. Custom options are available.

Tilt-to-Empty Feature

Emptying large high pressure reactors typically requires a bottom drain valve, which in some applications is undesirable. For researchers working with abrasive slurries, biomass particles or other materials incompatible with bottom drain valves Parr has developed a "Tilt-to-Empty" feature.

Parr Introduces New A2000G High Pressure Electrolyzer Cell

For electrochemical research involving carbon dioxide and water reduction.

A2000G Electrolyzer Assembly
A2000G Electrolyzer Assembly

Over the past decade, increasing interest has been directed towards utilizing carbon dioxide in generating liquid fuels and chemicals as a means to a sustainable, carbon-neutral based economy. The production of either carbon monoxide (CO) or synthesis gas (syngas), a combination of CO and H2, electrochemically from CO2 and H2O is an attractive option combining sustainable energy utilization and carbon recycling.

The new Parr A2000G High Pressure Electrolyzer Cell provides a unique and reliable hardware platform with many options for facilitating research in this area. The electrolyzer cell has a maximum working pressure of 10 MPa (1450 psi) at 200 °C. It is designed for quick assembly and reassembly. The flow-thru electrolyzer cell adopts a unique circular planar design for the titanium cathode flow field and the corresponding 316 Stainless Steel anode flow field. Other materials of construction are available.

Parr Multi Reactor Systems

Six Reactor Parallel System with Automated Sampling System
Six Reactor Parallel System with Automated Sampling System

Parr has seen a recent increase in demand for both parallel and series multi reactor systems. Parallel systems have been requested for use in high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, corrosion testing, and catalyst testing. Multiple reactors plumbed in series have typically been configured as CSTR’s used for conducting multiple reactions sequentially. With this demand, we have designed and manufactured multi reactor systems using our largest stirred reactors (four 20L), to our smallest (six 25mL), and many in between.

Our multi reactor systems are used by combinatorial chemists at pharmaceutical companies, catalyst development researchers at petroleum companies, material scientists at polymer producers, production engineers at energy storage and mining companies, and academic researchers pursuing widely varied research avenues.
