Asynt reports on an increasing demand for bespoke glass laboratory reactor systems, optimized to meet the exact demands of an application or project.
Bespoke amber glass laboratory reactor
As a respected supplier of off-the-shelf laboratory reactor systems, Asynt has the in-depth knowledge and glassware manufacturing expertise to also offer customized glass reactor vessels ranging from tens of milliliters to 50 liters in capacity.
A polymer resin manufacturer commissioned Asynt to develop a 20-liter jacketed glass laboratory reactor vessel with a bespoke 30mm 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 organization, specializing in the synthesis of photosensitive molecules, tasked Asynt to design a 1-liter glass laboratory reactor to minimize light degradation of their high value molecules during reaction. This was achieved by manufacturing the complete reactor system using amber-stained glass.
The Asynt team has over 30 years of dealing with custom glassblowing solutions and can help you with many of your custom glass reactor needs; whether you require just a small adaption or a fully bespoke glass reactor system.
