Multi-Reactor Systems

Laboratory reactor system simulates production chemical processes 


Parker Autoclave Engineers integrates custom, automatic controls with high temperature & high pressure, laboratory reactors into a pressure reactor system for chemical / petrochemical research. 

The customer specifies features desired. Parker Autoclave Engineers integrates computer, process controls / actuators, electronic process measurement instrumentation, with data acquisition hardware & software to create custom process equipment & research systems

Multi-Reactor Systems


  • Continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR), tubular fixed bed, or internal recycle catalyst reactor designs are offered

  • Materials of construction, capacity, pressure rating & temperature rating are selected by choosing an AE reactor 

  • Mass flow controls &/or metering pumps feed reactive gases or liquids into mixing, vaporizing or trickle feed port 

  • Controls offer recipe/process sequence automation & failsafe, unattended, operation: Operator input & errors are minimized

  • Standard data acquisition & data analysis features include trending, data history, alarms & data export 

  • Incorporate automatic reactant purification / pretreatment, process controls & product separation for repeatable research

  • The high temperature & high pressure stirred reactor system is delivered assembled & tested for fast & easy start-up

  • The design conforms to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII Division 1: An ASME code stamp is optional

  • Pressurized isothermal reactor systems have been successfully used as laboratory polymerization reactors (solvent based)

  • Obtain expert custom equipment advice from the manufacturer & ongoing support from the local, factory approved supplier




Simulate a complete chemical plant in a laboratory scale. Evaluate new chemistries & processes in a cost-effective model of production chemical equipment. Automatic control increases repeatability in complex chemical processes. Allowing unattended 24 hour 7 day per week operation increases productivity. Labor costs are reduced since the process sequence, process control & data logging are automated. Increase accuracy of the research by using actual data & avoid transcription.
