Zurich, Switzerland, 2014/02/25 - The EasyMax HFCal saves time and cost during chemical process development by providing accurate reaction data using fewer materials in a controlled, reproducible environment - MT.com.
METTLER TOLEDO has launched its new small-scale reaction calorimeter, EasyMax HFCal. This next-generation heatflow calorimeter provides critical process information to scientists and engineers earlier in the development process so they can shorten time-to-market, reduce development costs, and improve safety.
EasyMax HFCal allows it to generate reproducible results at small scale. Using fewer materials and less processing time, it provides accurate data on parameters such as heat transfer coefficient, specific heat of reaction mass, reaction enthalpy, thermal conversion and adiabatic temperature rise. This is particularly helpful when working with rare or expensive materials. It also means corrective process decisions can be made sooner for faster development and fewer costly lab or plant incidents.
“EasyMax HFCal provides reaction information early in the development process to improve the chemical workflow” says Urs Groth, Product Manager, METTLER TOLEDO. “This data can be used to characterize, optimize and understand process parameters in a controlled, accurate and reproducible environment.”
iControl software helps users quickly achieve an in-depth understanding of key reaction events by automatically calculating and reporting heat transfer data, specific heat of reaction mass, heat flow and reaction enthalpies. It also enables easy comparison of results from multiple experiments and/or multiple workstations.
