Pilot Reaction Vessel Features

Reactor-Ready Pilot Process Reaction Vessel Features

  • Jacketed and vacuum jacketed vessels with dish shaped bottom.
  • Feature a 1.25 to 1 ratio of internal height to diameter to mimic the geometry of plant scale reactors.
  • Range of single vessels from 5 litres to 20 litres.
  • Range of vacuum jacketed vessels from 5 litres to 10 litres.
  • Custom styles and sizes available on request.
  • Precision engineered borosilicate glass vessels with DN200 flange.
Reactor-Ready Pilot Glass Lids

Reactor-Ready Pilot Process Reaction Vessel Features

  • Double or vacuum jacketed vessels provide transparent insulation for faster cooling, lower temperatures and reduces frosting for improved contents visibility.
  • DN200 ground and polished flat flange combines with the FEP encapsulated O-ring and a unique self-centering PTFE collar to offer a leak-tight seal between the vessel and lid.
  • Convenient and cost effective vessel kits include stirrer, temperature probe and side-arm coupling.
Vessels feature V5 Zero Dead Space Drain Stopcock

Vessels feature V5 Zero Dead Space Drain Stopcock

  • Exclusive stopcock design prevents over-tightening that can cause glassbreakage
  • Piston design allows quick and safe removal, eliminating the cleaning and assembly problems associated with other stopcocks
  • Glass-filled PTFE pistons operate across the full temperature range -70 ºC to +230 ºC
  • Pistons are interchangeable between vessels with a full range of replacement parts and FEP O-rings
  • We recommend using Chemraz O-rings for temperatures above +150 ºC
  • The large 25 mm bore pistons minimise sample hold-up and are ideal for slurries

  • DN200 lid with either 6 or 7, Rodaviss conical ground glass joints
  • Rodaviss joints are grease free, will not jam and are interchangeable with ordinary 1-in-10 B and A length tapered conical joints
  • Rodaviss A length joints are also available
Reactor Ready PTFE Stirring Shaft

PTFE Stirrer Shafts

  • Chemically inert PTFE rotors moulded onto a 16 mm ø PTFE encapsulated metal core
