Atlas System Overview
Atlas Chemical Reactors Overview
Atlas is a revolutionary range of modular products, which can form a wide range of chemical reactors. Atlas offers manual or automated control of one or many reactions at a time with volumes from 5 litres to 1ml in jacketed reactors, flasks or vials.
Atlas Gravimetric Dosing
Atlas Volumetric Dosing
Atlas pH Control
Atlas FTIR Analysis
Atlas Potassium Pressure
Atlas Remote Mount
Atlas Jacketed Reactor Systems
Atlas can be configured into a wide range of different systems. All of the Atlas Jacketed Reactor Systems are based on the Atlas Potassium System.
Jacketed vessels from 100ml to 5 litres can be controlled in a fully automated fashion. They can be easily changed due to the quick release vessel clamp, auto aligning stirrer, quick connect fluid hoses and semi-automatic circulator fluid drain.
Without PC control, the intelligent base can control circulator or reaction temperature, overhead stirrer speed and reagent addition from a pump. Data from sensors such as thermocouples, pH sensors, turbidity probes and stirrers are recorded by the base and can be downloaded to a USB stick.
Vial and Round Bottom Flask Systems
A variety of dry bath options fit onto the hotplate and magnetic stirrer for single round bottom flasks or parallel flasks or vials. For cooled reactions, the hotplate can be removed and a cold plate fitted. The Stacking Atlas Dry Bath has concentric cups allowing round bottom flasks from 50ml to 1 litre to be heated or cooled. A triple dry bath is available for flasks from 50ml to 250ml and the Atlas Vial Baths can conveniently heat or cool a wide range of reaction vials. The Atlas Orbit can heat 6 or 12 reaction tubes with a reflux in an inert atmosphere. The base can automatically run reaction profiles and add reagents.

Atlas is Scalable in 3 Ways
By automation level
By number of reactions Single or parallel reactors
The unique design of the Atlas lab reactor range means it is fast and easy to change configuration from one to another without the need for tools.
At the centre of every Atlas system is the Atlas base. It contains a powerful computer with chemically resistant mechanical and electronic connections.
The base can monitor sensors and control process parameters such as temperatures, pH, turbidity, stirrer speed and reagent addition.Parameters can be defined as single setpoints or as sophisticated profiles. The base automatically logs all set points and sensor data which can then be downloaded in one file.
For more sophisticated reaction control, with real time graphs, Atlas can be controlled by unique Software. Powerful and easy to use, the Atlas Software can control and monitor other manufacturer’s laboratory apparatus. It can even performcomplete reaction calorimetry with real time reaction power and enthalpy graphs.
