Range of Applications


  • Syntheses like hydrogenation of C-C triple bonds, homogeneous/heterogeneous catalysis and polymerisation
  • Catalyst researches like tests of catalysts consisting of liquid or solid materials


  • Material testing like aging tests of e.g. elastomers, ceramics or metal parts

Product Description

The scope of delivery for the high-pressure reactors BR-1000, BR-1500 and BR-2000 includes rupture disc, dip tube, valve and a tool for a proper opening and closing of the reactors. According to customer requests, the reactors can be manufactured with stainless steel 316 Ti (1.4571) or hatelloy C-22 (2.4602). Pressure measurement is made analog and/or digital.

Due to an extensive range of accessories, individual reactor configurations can be made easily. Examples of accessories are:

  • Different heating methods (integrated or via additional instrument)
  • Various stirring concepts
  • Sample holders
  • A number of control units

The BR-1000, BR-1500 and BR-2000 reactors can be used for volumes up to 2,230 ml and convince by an easy handling, which represents a high level of user friendliness. Amongst others, this can be traced back to the opening and closing tool. All reactor vessels can be equipped with PTFE inserts.

The reactors are used for different types of synthesis, material tests and catalysts researches. Depending on the users’ needs, two of the six ports (8 mm tube connection) can be used individually. When adding t-connections, the number of free ports can be enlarged.
