What is the maximum pressure of Radleys jacketed lab reactors?

The maximum pressure of our glassware is 0.5 bar above atmospheric pressure (also known as 0.5 barg, or 1.5 bar absolute pressure).

This means that Reactor-Ready and our other jacketed lab reactors can tolerate slight positive pressure, but are not suitable for pressurised reactions.

When working with inert gas, we advise you use a gas bubbler (oil bubbler) or pressure relief valve, to allow the pressure to escape while keeping air out.

Limit the pressure of oil circulating through the vessel’s jacket if required (depending on your circulator model) so 0.5 barg is not exceeded.
