Hitec Zang

Automation for the Laboratory and Pilot Plant

HiTec Zang offers a wide range of turnkey solutions, single components and services for the laboratories, pilot-plants and mini-plants for the chemistry, pharmacy, biotechnology and food sectors. The product range includes everything required for research and development with small reactor systems. HiTec Zang LabManager systems have become established as a quasi-standard for laboratory automation in the field of research and development. An interdisciplinary team of specialists in the fields of chemistry, process engineering, bio process engineering and automation technology provides support and consultation for all customers.

Application oriented laboratory automation

The LabManager system is an automation and/or process control system for laboratories, mini and pilot-plant equipment. It is suitable for the automation of virtually all chemical-procedures reaching from batch, semi-batch and continuous processes. The LabManager system was developed in close cooperation with specialists from laboratories and pilot plant stations of major chemical companies. It has proved its worth in a great number of areas as a standard tool.

In accordance with the requirements of the NAMUR Working Party for research process control computer systems (RPCCS), particular care has been directed to develop a user-friendly HMI. A compact design, and a high application flexibility.The LabManager RPCCS is especially distinguished by the fact that it is also transparent and easy to handle for personnel inexperienced in automation technicians even if they want to go into details. With help from the graphically programmable recipe control system HiBatch and a unit operation library, a customer without automation-technical knowledge can program the control program for a complex synthesis in a few minutes. The LabManager systems usually have a pay-back period below one year!

Parallel Reactors

Automatic laboratory reactor systems

Parallel Reactors

Automated laboratory reaction systems are an absolute necessity for today’s product and process development and optimisation. Due to the much more intensive utilisation of the laboratory resources and the relief of the laboratory staff from routine activities, they can pay off very quickly. They are a sure way to achieve maximum reproducibility, an increase of quality and gain new knowledge. Conventional laboratory reactor automation systems are limited to simple syntheses and are therefore no longer able to meet today’s requirements. The fully-automated HiTec Zang laboratory reactor systems are available as single and parallel reactor plants. Apart from the standard configurations, you can choose the set-up of the plant which accords to your demands from the LabKit program.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Suitable for your application – Benchtop, Batch or Conti
    Simply define automated test sequences and let the LabBox® measure and control all processes accurately.

  • Flexibility
    Connect to any sensors and devices, thanks to the many possible protocols and interfaces.

  • Central user interface
    You can freely design your display and user interface. For repetitive processes, you can use many of our preconfigured routines and define your sequences, e.g. by drag and drop.

  • Document or export test data
    You can observe your measured value progressions live, monitor them remotely (Microsoft Windows® 10 or Android®) and/or transfer all values to other programmes.
