pilotclave – pilot and production pressure reactor


pilotclave – pilot and production pressure reactor

Pressure reactor for kilo labs and small-scale production

  • Reactor volume: 20 to 500 litre
  • Pressure: -1 (FV) to +200 bar
  • Temperature: -20 °C to +300 °C
  • Material: stainless steel, Hastelloy®

Other materials, pressures & temperatures are available

Buchiglas pilot plants are built for pressure reactions as well as for reactions under full vacuum. Different technologies and materials are used, depending on the requested process and process media.

Pilotclave pressure reactors range from 50 – 500 litres and are all customized. To quote such systems we require detailed specifications. Safety is essential with larger-scale systems, especially when doing hydrogenations and other reactions under higher pressure. The degree of automation and process control varies from simple data collection to complete system automation. In most cases, the reaction vessels are jacketed steel or Hastelloy® reactors.

The pilotclave pressure reactors are used for scale-up and smaller productions in pilot plants and kilo labs.

A URS (User Requirement Specification) and PID are very important for basic and detailed engineering and the success of such projects and plants.
