As demand for various industrial chemicals increases, many industry leaders are advising companies to purchase more glass reactors. However, many companies are also confused, considering that there are so many different types of reactors available for chemical processing. , especially when some customers do not have enough knowledge to distinguish glass reactors. With that in mind, here's how to choose between the different types of Double Wall Glass Reactor
used in the chemical process industry.
What are the designs of chemical glass reactors?
A chemical reactor is considered the heart of all chemical processes, and a chemical reactor vessel is an enclosed space that allows chemical reactions to take place. Its design involves many aspects of chemical engineering, including evaporation, mixing, heating, and cooling of condensed water. With chemical glass reactors, you can control conditions such as pressure and temperature to create the ideal environment for chemical reactions.
The design of chemical glass reactors includes mechanisms to regulate pressure and temperature. Chemical components are affected by given conditions to ensure that the components involved in a specific chemical reaction work properly. Some design considerations are:
The reactants are enclosed in containers containing chemical reagents. The reagents are subjected to different optimal conditions to ensure the best chemical reaction. For example, chemists can provide activators, including enzymes that speed up the rate of reactions.
They are included as part of the control. As reagents pass through different reaction conditions, their volume increases. This increased volume must be controlled by a drain valve. Safety measures should be taken when using the drain valve to prevent accidents.
In order for chemical reactions to proceed quickly, you must consider temperature control. Chemical reactor designs must incorporate this mechanism. A big advantage is that modern chemical reactors have automated systems that ensure that the temperature regulation process is quick and easy.
Different chemical reactor types
1. Batch reactor
This is the simplest type of batch reactor where materials are filled into the batch reactor and the reaction proceeds over time. Reactions in batch reactors do not reach steady state, so control of pressure and temperature is critical. Due to this factor, batch reactors have ports for sensors and material input and output.
Batch reactors are used for small-scale production and reactions with biological materials, such as the production of enzymes. Batch reactors are also used by scientists to conduct controlled processes in small environments, which can then be decided whether to deploy to large-scale production.
2. Jacketed glass reactor
Jacketed glass reactor is also called double-layer glass reactor. The inner layer can be stirred with a reaction solvent, and the interlayer can be connected to different cold and heat sources (refrigerated liquid, hot water or hot oil) for cyclic heating or cooling reaction. . Under the set constant temperature, in a closed glass reactor, the stirring reaction can be carried out under normal pressure or negative pressure according to the requirements of use, and the reaction solution can be refluxed and distilled. It is a modern fine chemical factory, biopharmaceutical and Ideal pilot and production equipment for the synthesis of new materials.In addition, we also provide Single layer glass reactor
3. Enamelled glass reactor
A glass-lined reactor is a physical or chemical reaction vessel in which a high silica-containing enamel glass frit is placed on the inner surface of a steel reaction vessel and then firmly adhered to the metal surface by high temperature combustion. Glass-lined reactor has the dual advantages of glass stability and metal container strength, and is an excellent corrosion-resistant chemical equipment. Through the structural design and parameter configuration of the reactor, the heating, evaporation, cooling and low-speed mixing functions required by the process are realized.
Glass-lined reactors are currently widely used in petroleum, chemical, rubber, pesticides, dyes, pharmaceuticals and food to complete processes such as vulcanization, nitration, hydrogenation, alkylation, polymerization and condensation.
How to choose between different types of reactors?
One of the most important issues facing businesses in the industry is installation costs. If you are looking for a glass reactor, you should choose a cost-effective installation.
Besides installation cost, another factor to consider is maintenance cost. Across the industry, reports show that maintenance and repair costs are eating up most of the profit and loss statements of well-known companies. Therefore, when it comes to expensive equipment like glass reactors, you should choose equipment with low maintenance costs.
Then ZZKD is a good choice, we are committed to providing customers with high-quality and low-cost glass reactors.
- Compliant with advanced world standards and requirements
- The highest quality delivered in the most cost-effective way and on time
- Dedicated customer service and technical support
While maintenance and installation costs need to be considered during the purchasing process, you must also understand the manufacturer's history. Different glass reactor manufacturers enjoy varying degrees of reputation in the field. You don't want to end up with a reactor made by a notorious manufacturer in the industry. For ultimate peace of mind in purchasing, it is best to choose a trusted producer with a long history of producing high-quality machinery.
Then our company is fully in line with the customer's choice:
- With 6 years of foreign trade experience, and more than 30 years of domestic trade experience.
- Professional manufacturer in the chemical industry!
- Our customers are all over the world, mainly in the United States, Canada, India, etc.
In addition to the manufacturer's reputation, your concern is how to ship the glass reactor to your business location. Some companies use the shipping and handling charges for glass reactors to offset some of the initial cost of their reactors. So you end up with a reactor that looks relatively cheap compared to the rest of the industry, when in fact you end up paying roughly the same after shipping. Therefore, transportation and logistics are an aspect that cannot be ignored.
