BÜCHI Glas Uster  (BÜCHI AG) Thaletec

Glass Process Equipment

Glass lined steel reactor: 250 - 10'000 liter
Pressure: -1.0 (FV) to +0.5 bar
Temperature: -60°C (-90°C) to +200°C
Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3 / glass lined steel / PTFE / PFA / Tantalum

Chemical process equipment, consisting of glass lined reactors or mixing tanks with distillation glass overhead are mainly used under vacuum for distillation, reflux distillation for different chemical synthesis and solvent recovery. Our 3-D engineering enables the integration of large glass lined reactors of different suppliers in combination with our glass components, forming a complete reaction system for production scale. Typically used in API and fine chemical synthesis. More info

Volume range: 63 - 1'000 L
Pressure: -1 / 6 bar
Temperature: -25 / +200°C
Material: All Thaletec glass linings available

Glass-lined reactors of Thaletec offer excellent resistance to corrosion, abrasion, pressure, water vapor, thermal shock, and wear. The reactors in the AE design are characterized by a main flange gasket with the same diameter as the total reactor. The system comes with an agitator system, baffle, sample extraction and several measuring probes (incl. conductivity, PT100, pH, etc.).

All type of glass-lined equipment from Thaletec, Pfaudler and De Dietrich can be reglassed if the glass-lining is worn, damaged or corroded. More info

Glass vessel: 50 / 100 / 140 / 250 liter
Pressure: -1.0 (FV) to +1.0 bar
Temperature: -60°C to +200°C
Filter cloth: Mesh size 8 - 115 micron
Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3 / PTFE / PFA / ETFE
Customized setups are available.

Büchi nutsch filters can easily be combined with our reactors for solid / liquid separation after the synthesis. The inert materials allow safe processing in a inert atmosphere of a wide range of solvents and acids in a completely sealed (büchiflex) glass system under full vacuum. More info

Heat Exchange area: 0.6 - 23m2
Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3 / Silicon Carbide (SiC) / Hastelloy C22 / glass lined steel / PTFE / Tantalum / stainless steel
Pressure range cooling media: 3 - 10 bar

Heat exchangers are used for cooling and condensation, mainly in vacuum distillation, absorption and rectification processes in chemical plants. Glass heat exchangers enable visual process control during scale-up and production and processing of multiple (acidic) chemical substances. We offer glass spiral type heat exchangers and shell & tube type heat exchangers, often operated in combination with a secondary condenser for additional vapor condensation. More info

Glass column: DN 50 / 70 / 100 / 150 (up to DN600)
Flask size: 10 / 20 / 50 liter
Pressure: -1.0 (FV) to +0.5 bar
Temperature exhaust gas: -60°C to +200°C
Temperature scrubbing liquid: 0°C to +80°C
Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3 / PTFE / ETFE
Customized setups are available.

Gas scrubbers are used to neutralize corrosive exhaust gas from reactors by stripping the exhaust of the pollutants (often HCL). Depending on the scrubbing liquid, they can be used for caustic or acidic vapors/exhausts. More info
