What is your jacketed lab reactor leak testing procedure?

Our Reactor-Ready range of jacketed lab reactors, together with Lara, have been specially designed to greatly minimise the risk of any leakage compared to other reaction systems.

This means that excellent vacuum levels can be obtained; moreover, the equipment lasts longer (due to reduced risk of chemical leakage and hence corrosion), health and safety is improved, and your valuable product is not lost.

You can check the sealing of your Reactor-Ready system, and investigate the source of any leaks or chemical vapours, by following the guidance in our technical bulletin ‘TB 102 Reactor-Ready vacuum and pressure testing’, available to download here.

Please also refer to the separate FAQ entry ‘What vacuum level can be achieved in Radleys jacketed lab reactors?’ for further details of factors that can influence the vacuum level you observe.
