The Mettler Toledo RC1su MP10 HC RTCalTM is a medium pressure RC1 reactor with real time calorimetric capabilities (the RTCalTM capability) to measure thermodynamic reaction enthalpies under pressure up to 10 bar (the MP 10 HC rating), and high pressure Infrared reaction detection detection capability, the RCIr45 module, that allows us to measure the reaction progress with time during the course of the calorimetric measurements.
The IR measuring capability is of great importance to us because it enables us to see exactly when the reaction being studied is complete and when side-reactions set in. Without this reaction, detection system will be a black box calorimetric approach with no insight. It operates as a unit, i.e. a single piece of equipment made up of the components (a) RCIr45m and (b) RC1su MP10 RTCalTM package.
