IKA Flow



Flow chemistry made easy and affordable with IKA FLOW. Its secret: Unlike other commercially available flow chemistry equipment, you just purchase the necessary part of the flow chemistry apparatus.

The portable IKA FLOW is an attachment that forms a flow chemistry reactor in combination with your IKA magnetic stirrer RCT digital. In addition, it has been designed to be used with any fume hood gas source (with a 6 mm pressure tubing and an adaptor to typical fume hood gas supplies) such as compressed air or nitrogen.

IKA FLOW’s scope of delivery includes in addition to the attachment, a glass bottle, a mixing chip, support screws, three on-and-off valves, a heating block, four disc reactors, and a labeled tubing set.
