Automated 5.3 gal (20-liter) pilot plant incorporates a touch-screen computer system that fully controls three parameters: motor speed, vacuum/pressure and reaction temperature. The temperature is controlled through a Julabo recirculating chiller, and the vacuum/pressure is controlled through a J-Kem vacuum controller. The motor speed controls a Heidolph RZR motor. The color touchscreen control unit monitors, graphs and datalogs the three parameters. A full reaction can be programmed into the system and run automatically.
