The 5500 Series

Based on the popular micro and mini reactor series, the 5500 series compact reactors offer the same vessel design as their counterparts, meaning that they retain the original rating of 200 Bar at 350°C, but with a greatly reduced footprint compared with their counterparts. This has been achieved by a complete re-design of the stand and heater assembly and by reducing the size of the mag drive.

The key differences between the 4590 and 4560 series and the 5500 series compact reactor are given below:

  • Reduced size and coupling force mag drive
  • Reduced size and power direct drive motor
  • Aluminium block heater supports vessel

These changes mean that the 5500 series compact reactor is not only the most compact, but also the most economical stirred reactor that we offer, making it perfect for settings where the higher specification components and the customisability of the 4590 and 4560 series are not needed.
