Asynt is facing increasing demand for its bespoke glass laboratory reactor systems, optimised to meet the exact demands of an application or project.
As a respected supplier of off-the-shelf laboratory reactor systems, Asynt has the in-depth knowledge and glassware manufacturing expertise to also offer customised glass reactor vessels ranging from tens of millilitres to 50 litres in capacity.
A polymer resin manufacturer commissioned the company to develop a 20-litre jacketed glass laboratory reactor vessel with a bespoke 30mm diameter zero dead space bottom run off valve. Because of the viscous nature of the reaction material, the valve was essential to the project, allowing for simple product sampling and ensuring easy and efficient transfer of the reaction material. The customer was so pleased with the operation of the resulting glass reactor that they ordered a second identical system.
The company was also tasked by a contract research organisation specialising in the synthesis of photosensitive molecules, to design a one-litre glass laboratory reactor to minimise light degradation of their high value molecules during reaction. This was achieved by manufacturing the complete reactor system using amber-stained glass.
The Asynt team has more than 30 years of dealing with custom glassblowing solutions and can help meet a range of custom glass reactor needs; whether users require a small adaption or a fully bespoke glass reactor system.
