The Series 4600, 1.0 and 2.0 L Vessels are the largest of the Parr Vessels that can be handled on a bench top.
These reactors are available with an FKM O-ring seal for operating temperatures to 225 °C, and FFKM O-ring for temperatures to 300 °C, or with a flat, PTFE gasket for operating temperatures up to 350 °C maximum. An optional HP (High Pressure) flat gasket version has been added for maximum allowable working pressure of 2900 psi (200 bar) at 350 °C. Both fixed head and moveable vessel designs are available.
An optional pneumatic lift is available for the heavier 2 liter cylinder and heater. It should be noted, however, that the 2 liter, fixed head model is tall and may not be convenient to operate on a standard height bench top. We recommend using a floor stand.
With their larger diameter, these mid-size reactors have sufficient space for special modifications, such as an internal cooling coil, bottom drain valve (not on 2 liter bench top), ball valve for a solids charging port, catalyst addition devices, condensers, electrical feed-throughs and more.
