The Series 4580 reactors are offered in a variety of sizes and mountings for operating pressures up to 3,000 psi and temperatures up to 500°C.
4581 – 4582 Reactors
These 1 gallon (3.75 L) and 1.5 gallon (5.5 L) reactors are designed for 3000 psi (207 bar) maximum pressure with a 500 °C maximum working temperature and mounted on moveable carts.
4583 – 4584 Reactors
These are 1 gallon (3.75 L) and 1.5 gallon (5.5 L) fixed head reactors mounted on floor stands with pneumatic lift.
All of the Series 4580 Reactors have been designed with suitable valves, fittings and modifications to the vessel itself to operate at the higher temperature and pressure ratings.
Flat, flexible graphite (FG) gaskets are used for temperatures in the higher range to 500 °C. These can be replaced with PTFE gaskets for procedures in which the temperature will not exceed 350 °C.
