Reactor Systems

We supply ChemReactors for basic up to high performance applications. Performance and reliability are key issues in the explosion proof design of Büchi glass reaction systems. The inert materials allow safe processing in an inert atmosphere of a wide range of solvents and acids in a completely sealed glass reaction system under full vacuum. Multiple chemical reaction steps are performed safely in the same setup.
Basic up to high performance reactor systems for API synthesis, small scale production and pilot plant. 15 – 250 litre.

The use of glass ChemReactors

The BÜCHI high performance ChemReactor is a multipurpose pilot reactor system for chemical process development, scale-up, process simulation and kilo scale cGMP production in batch and semi-batch operation.

The system consists of:

Reactor with solid jacketed glass lined steel bottom stands for solid construction, excellent heat transfer, stable process conditions and temperatures, and a glass section to easily improve and control chemical reactions by visual observation.

Distillation glass overhead built with buchiflex components (unique flexible ball - socket joints) for multiple, reliable processes under full vacuum.

With a large number of options, standard- and custom-made components, we can build solutions to fulfil any requirement. The use of the unique ball/socket joints “büchiflex”, allow for easy retrofitting for new processes and maintenance.

Advantages of our ChemReactors

  • Unique flexible ball-socket joints (büchiflex)
  • No compensators required!
  • FDA conform made of borosilicate glass 3.3/ PTFE/ PFA
  • Reactor lift
  • Many options including distillation overhead, sampling system, reflux, probes, etc.
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Complies with ATEX zone I / CE / cGMP / CIP
  • Reliability of the equipment
  • Short downtimes
  • Economic daily operational costs
  • High productivity and reproducibility of high purity chemicals
