Application optimised glass laboratory reactors

Examples of reactors designed and manufactured by Asynt have ranged from tens of millilitres to 50 litres in capacity

As a respected supplier of off-the-shelf laboratory reactor systems, Asynt has the knowledge and manufacturing expertise to also offer bespoke glass reactor vessels to meet the demands of any application or project.

Examples of reactors designed and manufactured by Asynt have ranged from tens of millilitres to 50 litres in capacity.

The company was commission by a polymer resin manufacturer producer to develop a 20 L jacketed glass laboratory reactor vessel with a bespoke 30 mm diameter zero dead space bottom run off valve. Because of the viscous nature of the reaction material this valve was essential to the project, allowing for simple product sampling and ensuring easy and efficient transfer of the reaction material. The customer was so pleased with the operation of the resulting glass reactor that they ordered a second identical system.

A contract research organisation specialising in the synthesis of photosensitive molecules tasked Asynt to design a 1 L glass laboratory reactor to minimise light degradation of its high-value molecules during reaction. This was achieved by manufacturing the complete reactor system using amber-stained glass.

The Asynt team has more than 30 years of dealing with custom glassblowing solutions and can help with custom glass reactor challenges; whether a small adaptation or a fully bespoke glass reactor system is required.
