  Jacketed glass reactors are laboratory or production reaction vessels used for the synthesis and crystallization of different materials in controlled temperature environments.TOPTION's ingenious glass reactor products are not only available in a wide range of sizes but also have stable, reliable qualities and unique designs that make them indispensable and important equipment in a variety of industries.

  These units often feature temperature control devices, top-mounted stirrers, ports, and valves for accessing liquids. Glass reactors are commonly used in research and production and consist of a glass reactor body and heating/cooling temperature control equipment.TOPTION's glass reactors are robust, chemically inert, and light-transmitting, and are widely used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries for mixing, purifying, sublimating, and reacting substances.

Chemical Reactions

  The glass reactor's jacket provides precise temperature control by circulating hot and cold liquid around its inner reactor, making it a versatile tool for studying or producing modern synthetic chemical reactions, biopharmaceuticals, or new materials. Chemical reactions cover an expansive spectrum, from combination reactions (where two or more chemicals are combined together) to decomposition reactions (in which chemicals are broken down into simpler substances). Glass-jacketed reactors offer temperature control as well as agitation - essential elements in certain processes like decarboxylation. Jacketed glass chemical reactors can also be utilized by the pharmaceutical industry for drug synthesis and crystallization reactions at controlled temperatures and vacuum conditions, in the food industry for brewing/fermentation reactions as well and by petrochemical firms for catalytic cracking/hydrocarbon decomposition/polymerization reactions.

  Jacketed glass chemical reaction vessels equipped with adjustable stirring speeds, constant pressure feeding funnels, and built-in condensation for chemical reaction processes. Each jacketed vessel also comes equipped with various functional ports designed to add material at controlled rates or measure the temperature inside the vessel and recover distilled materials from reactions; additionally, these glass reactors can be cooled or heated as desired, and their outer jacket pumped up to a vacuum condition for thermal insulation purposes.


  Biotechnology uses various chemicals to produce pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, dyes, and food products. Reactions take place in jacketed glass reactors which provide a controlled environment. Their jacket allows heating or cooling in an efficient manner as well as insulation against any loss or gain in heat transference.

  The 10L jacketed glass reactor features an outer glass shell filled with liquid heating or cooling solutions circulating continuously around its inner chamber. The liquid circulating within this layer aims to control the material temperature inside, with stirring capabilities added for increased homogeneity of temperature and concentration properties in fluid properties within.

  Biotechnology can be utilized to produce crops that are healthier for consumers, reduce environmental impact, and help create new materials. For instance, plants can be genetically modified to withstand drought or flood conditions while producing higher yields. However, biotechnology poses some safety issues for humans. Concerns include the potential development of microbial diseases or allergies as a result of manipulation by lab workers of living organisms in laboratories. Furthermore, biotechnology has the potential to shrink biodiversity through monocropping which could diminish crop diversity while draining soil nutrients needed for its existence.

Food & Beverage

  Food and beverage production refers to establishments that specialize in producing or processing foods and beverages for human consumption, including restaurants, night clubs, bars serving alcoholic drinks, bakeries, candy, sugar, confectionery products manufacturing facilities as well as dairy product production plants; canning of fruits and vegetables (canned, preserved or otherwise), grain mill products (such as by-products from grinding mills), canning meat poultry fish canning curing as well as soft drink production all fall under this industry umbrella.

  Jacketed glass reactors are ideal for these applications because they allow for precise control over reactions in an environment with adjustable temperatures, pressures, and vacuum conditions. Their flexibility also extends to liquid and gaseous reactions and makes them suitable for corrosive chemicals as well as volatile solvents. These reactors are constructed from borosilicate glass that is resistant to chemical corrosion, temperature fluctuations, and pressure. Their lid features openings for operational ports that can connect to various equipment for adding content at controlled rates, monitoring temperature changes in reactants, or recovering products after distillation. Furthermore, these reactors can operate under various temperatures with ease and can even be upgraded easily for automation - making them an excellent choice for food and beverage production industries.

Oil & Gas

  Oil is a complex combination of hydrocarbons extracted from the ground and processed for specific uses. Production involves chemical reactions that may be affected by temperature, which is why jacketed glass reactors are widely utilized across industries. Glass reactors are two-part vessels with an inner reaction chamber and an outer layer that can be filled with temperature-controlling liquid, such as water or oil, to maintain constant temperatures in the inner reaction chamber. By circulating this temperature-regulating liquid between layers, an accurate temperature can be maintained inside this type of reaction chamber - making it perfect for chemical applications that require precise temperature management.

  Jacketed glass reactors can also be utilized in various petroleum and gas-related reactions, including distillations, reflux reactions, and extractions. To be successful, these reactions require precise temperature and pressure controls in order to guarantee success. Jacketed glass reactor innovations have enabled researchers to reduce the energy expenditure required to maintain constant temperatures while simultaneously increasing ease of use. For instance, double-jacketed reactors feature an additional outer layer that includes inlet/outlet ports for connecting an external heat source or chiller - eliminating the need for using an electric heating blanket that wraps around an entire reaction vessel and could potentially cause burns.TOPTION glass reactors are indispensable in all areas of testing due to their stable performance and wide range of applications.
