Orb

Designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind, Orb is the jacketed reactor system combining high performance and excellent value.

Effortless reactions with Orb

Orb’s intuitive design makes using jacketed reactors simple with the ability to use a wide range of vessels from 100 mL to 10 L on one system. The compact design saves space and provides a robust, reliable platform to suit your chemical processes.

Due to its modular design, wide vessel range, and wide temperature limits, Orb can be used in many applications, including process development and optimization, advanced synthesis, crystallization, automated synthesis, and more.

Ease of use is Syrris’ main design philosophy, and Orb certainly delivers on this.

  • Wide vessel and accessory range

    100 mL to 10 L vessels on one system and choice of accessories, including condensers, stirrers, probes, baffles, powder or pressure equalizing liquid funnels, port adapters, and stoppers

  • Tool-free height adjustment

    The unique frame allows you to adjust the Orb vessel height without any tools, allowing you to work at a level that is suitable for you

  • Unbelievable value

    Designed overcome all the issues associated with fixed reactors in the lab, at a very attractive price

Quick vessel change

The unique vessel clamp, oil drain function and quick connections allow vessels to be interchanged in minutes providing the utmost in flexibility.  Simply lift the stirrer motor out of the way, unlock the clamp and you can remove the reactor and lid.  The oil drain function allows to remove oil without any fuss or spillages.

Simple stirrer lift

Orb’s innovative stirrer motor lift allows the stirrer motor to be easily lifted and rotated out of the way to give full access to the lid and ports. The stirrer motor can then be relocated without the need for further alignment.

Unbelievable value

Orb has been introduced to be the workhorse in your laboratory. With many years developing reactor systems, Syrris developed Orb to be the system to overcome all the issues associated with fixed reactors in the lab. The system has been designed to be supplied at a very attractive price. Speak to your Syrris contact and you will be amazed at the price of this extremely robust and impressive system.

Unmatched thermal performance

Orb vessels offer accurate thermal performance from -40°C to +200°C (or -90°C to +250°C with temperature upgrade kits). This advanced temperature control allows chemists to work at a huge range of temperatures and therefore access more complex chemistries. The accuracy also enables far greater repeatability and reproducibility of results.

What we say

Our passion is to design products to make chemists’ lives easier. The aim was to create a product with excellent performance at an attractive price…and we believe Orb does this.
