Vaportec Innovation Reflected in Dichroic Mirror

publication date: Jul 23, 2014

One of the many key features of Vapourtec’s (Suffolk, UK) recently launched UV-150 Photochemical Reactor is the patented Dichroic Mirror that allows for better temperature control during continuous process photochemistry experiments.

Andrew Mansfield of Vapourtec explained: “The UV-150 is already making its mark in the field of photochemistry with both academic groups and the pharmaceutical industry finding that it delivers levels of control, scalability and consistency that was previously unavailable.

“An important part of that control comes as a result of the Dichroic Mirror incorporated within the UV-150. The inner surface of the casing is substantially reflective to ultraviolet radiation and substantially absorptive of visible and infrared radiation.

“The coating is capable of reflecting over 90% of the energy within a 200-450 nm wavelength range and absorbing over 90% of energy for wavelengths of 500-2000 nm.

“The UV-150, together with the Dichroic Mirror, allows research groups to expand their capability in terms of the range and scope of reactions and gives chemists the opportunity to increase chemical space,” added Andrew.

Vapourtec design and manufacture flow chemistry systems for a wide variety of sectors across the globe including education, pharmaceutical and industry and their technology has been cited as playing a pivotal part in recent major research breakthroughs.

Established in 2003, Vapourtec has developed a flourishing international market for its technology with sales across much of the developed world including USA, China, Japan, Singapore and India.
