Parr Instrument Company designs and builds a wide variety of specialty and custom reactor systems. These reactor systems embody the spirit of innovation that has made Parr the world leader in laboratory pressure apparatus. Our technical sales, engineering and production teams are happy to work directly with our customers’ scientists and/or engineers to very quickly, accurately, and economically proceed from concept to manufacturing. The following systems illustrate several examples of specialty and custom reactor systems designed and built using exactly this collaborative process.
- 4878 Automated Liquid Sampler
- Biofuels and Alternative Fuels
- Horizontal Reactors
- Supercritical Fluids
- GTO (Gas-To-Oil) System
- Tri-Axial Core Holder
- Apparatus for Vapor Pressure Determination
- Disbonding Apparatus for ASTM G146
- Pressure Extraction Vessel 4632 for ASTM D1676
- Apparatus for Corrosion Studies
- High Temperature 4570 Vessel
- Apparatus for Rate of Pressure Change
To facilitate collaboration between Parr and our customers as well as to support the high quality of our equipment, we have invested heavily in both design and manufacturing technology. All custom reactor systems are designed with 3D modeling software to create a virtual prototype prior to manufacturing. This model supports clear communication between the customer and Parr and shortens the design phase of such projects. On the manufacturing floor, state of the art, five axis, computer controlled machines programmed and operated by Parr’s highly skilled machinists allow rapid and accurate production of even the most complex parts.
To match the variety of reactor systems available, our control design and programming team offers multiple types of control systems, ranging from simple, manual temperature control to completely automated and integrated PC-based control, developed to each customer’s specification. Control systems are discussed more completely in our Controllers section.
If you have an idea for a reactor system that is not described here, please contact Parr’s world-class technical sales department — there is a very good chance we can build a reactor system to meet your needs.
