Some low-temperature and exothermic chemical reactions, such as chiral synthesis, require low or very low temperatures to be controlled safely and efficiently.
Liquid nitrogen can be used to cool the reaction medium directly or indirectly and to maintain a low temperature so that the right chemical reactions can happen.
Liquid nitrogen offers a highly efficient and reliable cooling solution compared to mechanical cooling units. It is an eco-friendly and particularly well-suited cooling source when very low temperatures are required. Its highly available cooling power allows for the safe control of exothermic reactions.
Air Products’ PolarFit® reaction cooling systems provide a fast, precise, flexible and cost-effective way of achieving the necessary temperatures. Depending on the temperature requirements we offer three main reaction cooling systems: indirect, semi-indirect and direct.
