Key Features

Temperature Range

The block temperature range varies from −30 °C to +180 °C. Solution temperature ranges from a minimum of −20 °C to +150 °C. Separate control of each zone is possible. Block or solution control is available.

Wide Range of Vessels

Tubes, vials, round bottom flasks and straight-sided process vessels with volumes ranging from 2 to 400 mL can be used.

Mya Compact Stirrer

The stirrer enables strong, high-torque overhead stirring. Tool-free attachment is available. It stirs from 100 to 1000 rpm. Users can control each position separately.

Minimal Zone Cross-Talk

A temperature difference of up to 200 °C between adjacent zones is a result of high-performance insulation. Perfect for multi-user work and multiple projects.

Cool to −25 °C with tap water

Strong Peltier technology offers quick cooling. There is no need for a separate chiller.

Magnetic Stirring as Standard

Users can control each position separately from 100 to 1000 rpm.

Space Saving

The Reaction Station has a small benchtop footprint and occupies less space than four separate reaction set-ups.

Reflux or Manifold Head

This head can be used for effective refluxing and distribution of inert gas. The reflux head is water-cooled and can be utilized with reflux tubes. The manifold head distributes water for glass condensers.

Excellent Visibility

Users can easily view their vessel contents.

Touch-Screen Control Pad

This control pad comes as standard and is intuitive, user-friendly and makes use of manual control or set profiles automatically.

Single or Multi-User Operation

Users can regulate heating or cooling and stirring of each zone separately.

Optional PC Control Software

Users can combine and control third-party devices like balances, pumps and pH sensors.

Manifold or Reflux Head

  • Gas can be distributed for inerting
  • Water-cooled
  • Manifold head
    • Comes with non-return shut-off valves
    • Distributes water for separate condensers
  • Reflux head
    • Effective refluxing in an easy set-up
    • Cools the exterior part of reflux tubes
