Chemical Reactors

OptiMix Reactor

Chemical reactors are a mainstay of our product offering.  For highly corrosive materials, or end-products that require ultra-pure environments, DDPS reactors are often the best choice to achieve process performance goals efficiently and economically. Our reactors are available as stand alone equipment or can be incorporated into a system.

Our reactors are primarily manufactured from glass-lined steel (reactors and storage tanks), solid glass or a combination of both materials with a variety of accessories and instrumentation.  Each method of construction has its own advantages (and limitations) for process and operation considerations.  Learn more about the internal components of reactors and the advantages of each material of construction.
