Reliable Small Batch Processing Helps Lower Cost, Protects Results

in Reaction

METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the availability of the RC1sp Small Scale Production Workstation. This semi-automated and highly reliable workstation allows chemists, process chemists and chemical engineers to produce small batches of high value chemicals for traceable, reproducible and more profitable reaction results.

"The RC1sp offers a safe and controlled way to produce building blocks, intermediates, pre-clinical batches and resin materials at the highest quality, even for the most sensitive and selective chemistry and precision-based business segments such as semi-conductors," explained Urs Groth, Marketing Communication manager, Reaction Engineering, METTLER TOLEDO. "Consistency and quality in-lab ensures desired reactivity in downline processes."

The flexible RC1sp workstation allows for either partially or fully automatic processing. Manual process issues associated with round bottom flasks and jacketed lab reactor setups can be eliminated. Most importantly, for safety under vigorous reaction conditions, the unique self-contained design reduces the risk of operator exposure to hazardous materials, Groth noted.

The RC1sp's powerful thermostat provides fast heating and cooling while keeping reaction temperature controlled, even in the presence of unanticipated exotherms. Standard operations such as catalyst additions or pH control are monitored and adjusted using METTLER TOLEDO's iControl RC1 software. Because data quality is critical, iControl monitors desired process parameters along with nearly every other possible reaction variable while recording progress. Standard, easy-use graphic reports make it simple to compare and evaluate entire runs or individual recation steps.

Combining the robust iControl software package with the exacting RC1sp thermostat virtually guarantees consistent, reproducible reaction results.

"The RC1sp Small Scale Production Workstation is a smart solution to the problem of efficient small-scale chemical processing in a time- and resource-saving manner," said Groth.

The METTLER TOLEDO RC1sp Small Scale Production Workstation is built on more than 30 years' experience in thermostat technology.
