Buchi reactors and chemical glass plants have passed the test of time with outstanding performance, robustness and versatility in daily operation. Reactor systems, Nutsch filters, mixing vessels and scrubbers are used for cGMP production of APIs and chemicals in pilot plants and production sites. Buchi process equipment is built with solid glass based on unique flexible joints and glass lined steel components.

Buchi pressure reactors and stirred autoclaves are used for chemical reactions under pressure. These reactors are commonly used in hydrogenations, polymer and catalyst research and in chemical production in Pilot Plants. Our reactor systems can operate interchangeable glass, high pressure steel and Hastelloy vessels of different volumes. Efficient (high viscosity) mixing is ensured by powerful stirrer drives with magnetic couplings.

pilotclave PILOTCLAVE

Pressure reactors for research and small-scale production

  • Other materials, pressures & temperatures are available.

Büchi 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 – 250 liters and are all customized. To quote such systems we require detailed specifications. Safety is important with such larger scale systems, especially when doing hydrogenations and other reactions under higher pressure. The degree of automation and process control vary from simple data collection to complete automation of the system. 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 kilolabs.

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