Photochemical Reactor

1 Are there any solvents that I cannot use with the knitted reactor coils (KRC) and knitted delay tubes (KDT)?

Yes, you cannot use any perfluorinated solvents or any solvent not compatible with PTFE with the KRC and KDT. Click here to learn more about the post column reactor Click here to learn more about knitted…

2 Can I purchase a CE marked version of the post column, photochemical reactor?

Yes, using a different catalog number, you can purchase a CE Marked Photochemical Reactor. Contact us for more information. Click here to learn more about the post column reactor © Copyright MicroSolv…

3 Can I use other UV wavelengths with the post column, photochemical reactor?

Yes, you can purchase from MicroSolv, a replacement UV lamp for the post column photochemical reactor that emits mostly a 366nm wavelength. This lamp is completely compatible with all knitted reactor…

4 Can I use the knitted reactor coils (KRC) of the post column photochemical reactor with my HPLC fluorescence detector?

The only restriction on whether or not you can use the knitted reactor coils of the post column photochemical reactor is the inlet tubing of your detector. The absolute minimum ID can be 0.008". It is…

5 Can the knitted reactor coils (KRC) be heated or cooled?

Yes, you can use one of the MicroSolv HPLC Column Water Jackets and pump heated or cooled liquid through it. The maximum temperature that the KRC or KDT can withstand is 200°C Click here to learn more…

6 How can I change the reaction time of the knitted reactor coils (KRC)?

The reaction time can be changed by changing the inner diameter and length of the KRC. Click here to learn more about the post column reactor Click here to learn more about knitted reactor coils © Copyright…

7 How long will the UV lamp operate at acceptable efficiency with the post column photochemical reactor?

The UV lamp supplied with the post column photochemical reacdtor should operate at acceptable levels for approximately 3,000 hours then it should be replaced. If you find the signal has significantly…

8 I have been using the photochemical reactor for a while now. Is there a decrease in the pressure rating of the KRC?

Yes, with long term or constant use there is a natural decrease in the pressure rating and the knitted reactor coil should be replaced. Click here to learn more about the post column reactor Click here…

9 I want to use the post column photochemical reactor for Aflotxins. Which knitted reactor coil (KRC) do you recommend? What other accessories would I need?

The recommended KRC for Aflatoxin analysis is the 49900-KRC2525, 1.25ml void volume. The uv lamp supplied in the Photochemical Reactor is a low pressure mercury with 254nm light and is purchased with…

10 If I use the post column, photochemical reactor, do I have to use derivatizing agents?

No, one of the advantages of using the photochemical reactor is that the mechanism to boost your signal is photolytic and messy derivatizing is not required. Click here to learn more about the post column…

11 Is a knitted reactor coil (KRC) included in the purchase of the photochemical reactor?

No, you can select from one of 1 many coils that will be completely compatible with the photochemical reactor. They vary in length and ID. See link below. Click here to learn more about the post column…

12 What are the knitted reactor coils (KRC) made from?

The knitted reactor coils are made of virgin, medical grade PTFE (a form of Teflon). Click here to learn more about the post column reactor Click here to learn more about knitted reactor coils © Copyright…

13 What is a post column, photochemical reactor? How does it work?

The post column, photochemical reactor is a compact, easy to use device that will enhance the UV, Fluorescence, Electrochemical or Chemiluminescence signal. The unit is placed, post column (between the…

14 What is the pressure rating of the knitted reactor coils (KRC) used with the post column reactor?

The knitted reactor coils are rated to hold 300 psig. After time and extended use, this rating may be significantly reduced. Click here to learn more about the post column reactor Click here to learn…

15 What is the temperature of the UV lamp on the photochemical reactor?

The UV lamp temperature of the photochemical reactor is roughly 200 °C when used under recommended conditions. Photochemical Reactor Product Page © Copyright MicroSolv Technology Corporation, all rights…
