100L Reactors

A jacketed glass reactor consists of an inner glass vessel enclosed within an outer jacket, allowing circulation of temperature-controlling fluids. This provides precise temperature control for reactions with heat-sensitive materials suitable for processes that require heating or cooling such as chemical synthesis, pharmaceutical research, and material testing. 

There are 2 types of jacketed glass reactors:

  • Single jacketed glass reactors

        - These reactors have one outer jacket that allows for temperature control of the reactor's contents.
     - Made suitable for: Laboratory applications with precise temperature regulation during chemical reactions or processes.

  • Dual jacketed glass reactors

     - Designed with both an inner and an outer jacket, these reactors allow for the circulation of cooling or heating fluids in-between.

      - Made suitable for: applications that require more precise and efficient thermal management because of its enhanced temperature control.

Whereas, non-jacketed glass reactors lack an outer jacket and rely on external heating or cooling methods. They are used for simple mixing, evaporation, crystallisation, or small-scale reactions where temperature regulation is not critical such as routine laboratory procedures, educational purposes, and low-budget experiments.

There are 2 types of non-jacketed glass reactors:

  • Single non-jacketed glass reactors

            -  These reactors lack an outer jacket and do not provide direct temperature control.
        - Made suitable for: simple processes that do not require precise temperature regulation such as basic mixing, dissolution, or general reactions.

  • Dual non-jacketed glass reactors

           - While these reactors lack an outer jacket, they possess two separate reaction chambers. It is purposed for experiments involving two different reactants that need to be combined or reacted simultaneously.
    - Made suitable for: applications requiring separate reaction environments or parallel reactions, where precise temperature control is not a primary concern.

The Ai R-series of 100L jacketed and non-jacketed glass reactors are designed for various laboratory applications and higher volumes of different materials. Each reactor features adjustable stirring speeds and a constant pressure feeding funnel that allows you to add material to the vessel at a uniform and controlled speed. The built-in condenser makes it possible to recover some materials, also at a controlled rate of speed.
