Storm Heating/Cooling Work Station

Storm was designed as an add-on module for the Carousel 6 Plus and Tornado combination, creating a powerful ‘Parallel Process Reactor’. Storm heats and cools, and with the aid of an overhead stirrer, can mechanical stir up to 6 flasks (50 ml to 250 ml), making it the ideal process optimisation and development tool.

  • When combined with a suitable circulator Storm is a powerful heating (+200 °C) and cooling (-65 °C) work station.
  • Storm’s contoured top plate was design to specifically accept the Carousel 6 Plus and Tornado combination.
  • Storm does not contain integral stirring (therefore stirring must be provided by a suitable overhead stirrer).
  • Storm combines with the Carousel 6 plus, Tornado, overhead stirrer and a circulator to provide controlled heating/cooling and stirring for up to 6 flasks from 5 ml to 250 ml.
Storm Heating/Cooling Work Station

  • Storm’s unique internal design maximises heat transfer from the circulator thermofluid, focusing the energy towards the top plate surface.
  • The design minimises temperature variation across the contoured top plate.
  • Storm is compatible with Huber, Julabo, Lauda and other leading brands of circulator (M24 connections required)
  • Storm will accept thermofluid from -85 °C to +235 °C: providing a typical solution temperature within your reaction flask of -65 °C to +200 °C

  • Storm’s insulated outer case reduces heat loss and prevents burns through contact with hot or cold thermofluid.
  • An optional two-piece, removable PTFE insulating cover/plate provides increased energy efficiency when used with the Carousel 6, for improved heating and cooling.
  • The insulating plate also helps reduce ice formation on exposed surfaces at sub-ambient temperatures.
  • The 135 mm ø top plate will also accept Heat-On and similar reaction blocks
  • Storm is ideal for temperature controlled, steady state reactions.

What is the difference between Storm and Breeze?

Storm

 

Features a sophisticated internal fluid path that combines with a high performance insulated case to maximise thermal transfer. These features create a temperature control module that has a wide operating range with excellent heat transfer, making Storm ideal for steady state reactions from -65 ˚C to +200 ˚C that require stable temperatures for extended periods, with minimal variation across the heated surface.

Breeze

 

Breeze™ Heating/Cooling Work Station

Small bench-top footprint and no insulation; resulting in a narrower operating range of -30 °C to +165 °C. Yet because it is smaller, Breeze has a much faster response time to required changes in temperature. This makes Breeze more suitable for applications that require solution control such as crystallisation studies.

Key features

Storm
  1. Unique internal design focuses the thermofluid towards the top plate surface

  2. Fluoropolymer splash guard is chemical-resistant and prevents heat transfer from block to insulated outer case

  3. Insulated outer case ensures efficient operation with minimum heat loss and maximum safety

  4. M24 hose fittings (adapters available)

  5. Optional PTFE insulating plate provides increased energy efficiency for improved heating and cooling

  6. Contoured inner surface accepts Carousel 6 base precisely

  7. Carousel 6 Plus locates on to the storm without tools
