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 35 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

Reactor-Ready Pilot - PTFE Lids

PTFE Vessel Lids

Ideal for use with PAT and test probes

  • Removable PTFE sockets and compression fittings allow for maximum flexibility, simply unscrew and change the fitting to suit your set-up.
  • More suitable for PAT and test probes than equivalent glass lids.
  • Allows for more ports in a smaller space (8 rather than 6 or 7).
  • More robust and less likely to break than glass.
  • Less dead space at top of vessel.
Reactor Ready PTFE Stirring Shaft

PTFE Stirrer Shafts

  • Chemically inert PTFE rotors moulded onto a 16 mm ø PTFE encapsulated metal core
  • Available in Anchor, Retreat Curve and Turbine or Propeller styles
  • PTFE Turbine Stirring Shaft is included with all Pilot vessel kits
PTFE Adjustable Rotors

PTFE Adjustable Rotors

  • Fit 16 mm shafts and can be position anywhere along shaft
  • Chemically inert PTFE with glass filled PTFE locking nut
  • RR258300 – 4 blade 45˚ Angle Rotor forces the product down and creates good
    axial flow with low shear force
  • RR258302 – 2 Blade Vertical Rotor creates tangential flow with gentle stirring
