Reglassing is ideal for situations when time and cost are a primary issue. The turnaround time is within weeks versus months to fabricate a new vessel and there is nearly a 50% cost savings compared to buying a new vessel. Additionally, upgrades such as OptiMix baffles, extra nozzles and insulation rings can be added. All vessels reglassed by DDPS come with the same standard warranty as new vessels, ensuring you are receiving a vessel "as good as new". DDPS also offers reglassing on competitors' equipment.

When is reglassing needed?

  • The addition of more plugs, patches or sleeves becomes uneconomical, or results in a repair of questionable integrity
  • Spalling of the glass due to nascent hydrogen attack
  • Galvanic corrosion caused by the use of dissimilar metals in the reactor, like dip pipes, valves and/or repair plugs
  • Substantial damage caused from the loss of a repair plug
  • Build up of extremely corrosive or erosive products from batch type operations and pilot operations
  • Contamination of jacket heating and cooling media, causing accelerated corrosion at the bottom closure ring
  • Lack of venting, which can allow corrosion-producing air pockets at the top jacket closure ring
  • Damage caused from a component being welded to the substrate during replacement
  • Accidental damage to the lining of the vessel
  • Mechanical damage, e.g. a workman drops a tool or other object he shouldn't have in his pocket
  • Poor workmanship on a repair
  • Thermal shock or stress beyond the safe limits of the glass
