Accessories for glass reactors

The use of glass reactor systems

Glass reactor systems are the perfect solution for visible reactions for corrosive processes under full vacuum up to +0.5 bar. Glass components such as nutsch filters, mixing vessels and scrubbers can be connected for additional process steps. The smart design enables the combination of glass and pressure vessels made of glass-lined steel!

Maintenance is simple; do it yourself!
With Büchiflex flexible joints, exchange of parts is quick and easy! With the Büchiflex joints, your glass construction is free of mechanical stress. No compensators required! Büchiflex couplings are vacuum-tight and leak-free. Available from DN15-DN600.
