Simular is a jacketed and stirred laboratory reactor platform which delivers flexibility of operation without compromising data quality.
The system is designed to closely match your plant conditions, then integrate them into a bench scale system, which is simple to operate and provides data effortlessly. Customizable, typical design features include temperature range, agitator type, stirring speed, reagent feed rate and even reactor geometry.
Multiple calorimetric methods
SIMULAR is designed to be used by both research chemists and safety specialists and this claim is based around the technical features of the system. In particular, SIMULAR uses unique power compensation calorimetry as one of the techniques allowing for accurate determination of heat release without the need for time-consuming calibration or complex calculation procedures.
Safe process scale-up
One of the most important uses of reaction calorimetery is to scale up stirred reactions safely and quickly. This is related to the fact that this calorimeter reports the rate of heat release as the reaction proceeds and if this rate is matched on the plant, safe operation is assured. The heat release rate directly determines the cooling duty specification for the larger scale reactor, which is a key operational parameter.
Batch times are easily obtained from heat flow data and this also provides valuable information about the expectation after scale up.
