The PressureSyn reactor-the safe way to react under pressure.


A high pressure reactor, designed and developed by chemists and staff in the engineering workshop in the School of Chemistry, has been brought to market in collaboration with Asynt.

The high pressure reactor, used by various groups in the School, has recently been launched in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia under the name PressureSyn . The main advantage of the PressureSyn over competitors is the inherent design of the “safety key”. This was designed to both seal the vessel and act as the key to open it. This key safety feature ensures that the reactor cannot be opened whilst pressure remains in the vessel, thereby protecting the operator from inadvertent contact with potentially toxic materials.
