chemistry. The HPR-Series reactors have been designed for
researchers interested in performing pressurized chemical
reactions in their laboratories. Features include:
■ A size range from 50 mL to 4 L.
■ Operation up to 10,000 psi and 350°C.
■ A built in mixer with a magnetically coupled impeller.
■ ASME rated high pressure components.
■ Protection by software “high alarms.”
■ A rupture disc for safe operation.
■ Three integrated RxTrol processors.
Saelig Company (Fairport, NY) has introduced GW Instek’s
LCR-6000 series inductance/capacitance/resistance meters,
which offer a test frequency range extending from 10 Hz to
300 kHz and with 0.05% basic accuracy. The five models in
the LCR-6000 series feature:

■ High visibility LEDs.
■ An operating temperature range from - 25° to 70°C.
■ A 4-pin Nano-style M8 connector.
■ One PNP, N.O. (normally open), or N.C. (normally closed)
switch point output.
■ Discrete PLC inputs.
■ High or low frequency options.
■ A 2 Hz/mm maximum resolution.
Subsea LVDT Linear Position Sensor
Macro Sensors (Pennsauken, NJ) has announced its SSI
Series of Subsea LVDT Linear Position Sensors with the
CiA 443 CANopen communication interface mandated
for use on subsea trees used in offshore oil drilling. It is
designed to prevent oil or gas release from an oil well,
while controlling flow rates to maintain steady production
levels. Features include:
■ The ability to provide feedback on valves in monitoring
and controlling their status as part of a subsea control
■ Connection to offshore platforms by means of CAN
■ Compliance with the CiA 443 CANopen regulation.
■ Encasement in Inconel 625 to withstand deep-sea
environments with pressures up to 5,000 psi.
■ The ability to meet service life requirements of at least
