Sightglass metal & glass reactor

Visual process control for reactions under pressure

Understanding a process can be done by measuring and recording different process parameters. Of great importance can be changes, which are hard to measure, but which can be easily observed simply by looking at the reaction through the pressure vessels' glass wall  or through a sightglass on metal reactors, designed for higher pressure.

Buchi glass reactors for pressure applications can safely by operated at 6 / 12 bar pressure (85 / 165 psi) due to special design - and safety features. High pressure sightglass for steel / Hastelloy pressure reactors are available in a standard configuration up to 60, 100 bar, 250 bar.
