Reactor-Ready Filter Lab Reactor

Combine your jacketed lab reactor and filtration setup into a seamless workstation for synthesis and product isolation

Stirred, temperature-controlled, contained filtrations

Upgrade your existing Reactor-Ready framework to accept filter vessels or invest in a dedicated Filter Reactor

  • Filter vessels are fully jacketed down to base for accurate temperature control

  • Range of jacketed filter vessels in 1 and 2 litre volumes

  • Filter assembly allows for efficient solid-liquid separation with minimal hold-up

  • Unique filter support plate aligns the base with the vessel for tool-free assembly

Synthesise and filter in the same vessel

Synthesise and filter in the same vessel

Our unique jacketed filter vessels allow for precise temperature control of the entire vessel contents during synthesis and filtration.

Jacketed glass filter vessels

Fully jacketed glass filter vessels for precise temperature controlled filtrations

Reactor-Ready Filter Vessels

Features include

  • Precision engineered borosilicate glass vessels feature a jacket design that extends right down to the filter plate for precise temperature control of your entire vessel contents.
  • The upper DN100 polished flat lid flange combines with a FEP-encapsulated O-ring and PTFE collar to offer a leak-tight seal between the vessel and lid.
  • The straight sided vessel inner allows unhindered filtration and features a wide DN150 bottom flange giving easy access to the filter cake.
Filter plate assembly

Filter assembly allows efficient solid-liquid separations

  • Reusable filter membranes are available in a range of porosities and materials.
  • Filter plate with removable clamp allows for easy product collection and reassembly after filtrations.
Filter assembly allows efficient solid-liquid separations

Filter plate assembly

The Reactor-Ready filter plate assembly enables efficient filtrations with easy solid recovery.

  • Innovative gasket and O-ring seal design reduces the risk of leaking.
  • The wide bottom flange and swivel filter support plate make cake retrieval and reassembly of the system quick and easy.

  • Glass Bottom Outlet Valve

    Easily removable for cleaning. 15 mm bore allows easy run off. Zero dead space design minimises material loss below filter media during reactions. Threaded outlet allows for connection to a collection vessel and vacuum pump for vacuum assisted filtrations.

  • Filter Membrane

    All kits include a Filter Membrane Evaluation Kit which includes one each of 6 styles of membrane pre-cut to size. Users can also cut their own filter membrane material to size.

  • Filter Plate and Gasket

    Available in PTFE or PEEK. PTFE (-30 to +120 °C) gives excellent chemical compatibility. PEEK (-30 to +180 °C) gives wider range of temperature and good chemical compatibility.

  • Sintered Glass Membrane Support

    Prevents filter media from being damaged during filtrations.

  • Aluminium Filter Plate Cup

    Holds filter plate rigidity during filtrations to ensure tight sealing of filter plate and vessel flange.

  • Gasket O-ring

    Kits include both Silicone (-30 to +180 °C) and Viton (-20 to +180 °C).
