Reactor Systems

Büchi chemical process equipment consisting of glass-lined reactors or mixing tanks with distillation overhead in borosilicate glass, can be operated at full vacuum and low pressure. A large variety of chemicals can be processed in such plants due to the highly corrosion resistant materials used. The design varies between multipurpose and product/process specific set ups.
Custom made glass systems for production in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

The use of process equipment

BÜCHI reactor configurations are used for chemical synthesis, distillation, reflux distillation, solvent recovery, rectification and other processes.

BÜCHI glass overheads are based on the unique, flexible and safe buchiflex glass joint system of DN15 - DN 600 components. Advantages of büchiflex joints are that they are leak-free, vacuum-tight and enable stress-free construction of your glass system! These connections are used for glass piping to connect distillation columns, heat exchangers, feeders, receivers and valves.

The set-up of your process equipment is always based upon your requirements.
