What is glass reactor?

A glass laboratory reactor is a versatile chemical device that is assembled from a variety of components and mounted on a stationary or mobile frame. This device is designed to provide the researcher with complete information about the process being carried out, including the possibility of visual observation. Several variations of the units can be found on the Internet, which, depending on the equipment, can be used for the following purposes:

  1. Mixing, grinding and homogenization.
  2. Extraction.
  3. Distillation and distillation.
  4. Organic synthesis reactions.
  5. Polymerization.
  6. Sample preparation.
  7. Product manufacturing process followed by the ability to scale up production.

The choice of a right reactor model is not difficult, and it is necessary to have a clear idea of the purpose of the glass reactor.

Types of glass reactors

There are various model options on the market, varying according to their purpose and the number of layers. You will be able to find single and double layer models, which are characterized by their durability. Special attention should be paid to the double layer reactor. The main characteristic of the double-layer glass reactor is its double-walled inner vessel (jacketed flask). The gap between the two walls is filled with a coolant (steam or liquid) that regulates the temperature of the mixture in the tank, allowing it to cool, heat or maintain at a certain level.

A double-layer lab glass reactor, unlike a single-layer one, has a specialized way of maintaining the temperature in the reaction vessel. This is accomplished by means of a jacket rather than the external bath typical of single-layer reactors. For this purpose, a coolant of a certain temperature is supplied through the built-in jacket outlets. A thermostat, heater, or chiller can be used as a source of heat transfer medium. To ensure uniform heating or cooling of the reaction vessel, the jacket is made narrow. This design helps to increase the flow rate of the coolant and improve the efficiency of heat transfer.

The capabilities of the glass reactor depend on the completion with auxiliary and measuring devices. It is an important feature of laboratory apparatuses that they can be easily adapted to a specific task. The same basic model can be used for different purposes by changing its components.

Double-layer units have advantages over single-layer units:

  • large selection of models;
  • more compact and convenient design (no bulky bathtub);
  • jacketed flask with bottom valve allows organizing a continuous production process;
  • closed jacketed system is safer than an open bath;
  • more environmentally friendly (no vapor evaporation of coolant from the bath);
  • the temperature of the mixture in the flask is easier to control and regulate;
  • more economical (less heat or cold loss);
  • better and more uniform heat transfer;
  • external heat transfer fluid source is easy to select or replace.
