SIGMA CLASS GLASS JACKETED REACTOR DESIGN
SIGFOLDI – JACKATED® ( First time in world’s glass ind.) is manufactured with 100% folding design up to a nominal capacity of 200 L. Which is registered under Patents Registration No.: 207576.
It is a system of two concentric vessels held together by flange and seal arrangement. The end flexible seals absorb the different expansion levels and prevent high stresses of the inner component and the jacket by allowing the movement flexibility between two due to thermal expansion.
Fused Jacketed Glass Reactors are at a huge disadvantage in case of damage to the system due to mechanical impact are not repairable and have to be discarded. While in our system, if per chance the inner vessel or outer vessel get damaged either is replaceable adding to the longevity of the equipment.
All our reactor systems are designed to keep L/D ratio within standard limits.
Because of being a two component i.e. Vessel and Top cover agitators can be designed for the maximum sweep for better mixing & turbulence with no vortex formation by very effective second stage pitched blade agitator.
TRIPLE WALL GLASS REACTOR DESIGN
Sigma started manufacturing SIGFOLDI – TRIPLE JACKETED® reactor up to 50Ltr. Cap. from an entirely new design with design Registered No. 1681023.
Vacuum Jacket Eliminates heat losses to the atmosphere and allows the process to be monitored with no frost formation on the jacket for operations below freezing point.
The vacuum is extended over the service nozzles to facilities a clear view.
PTFE spiral Baffle can be fitted between Reaction Vessel and the service side of the jacket for maximum efficient heat transfer area utilisation.
All reactors are designed with little dead spaces to keep L/D Ratio within 1.0 to 1.5 for the safety of the equipment, smooth performance and easy scale up.
Operation Temperature Range : -80°C to +200°C
KILO LAB (REACTION / DISTILLATION UNIT) DESIGN
Reaction systems are developed to fulfil the actual needs of chemical and pharma industry. Sigma Reactors are built for batch and semi – batch operation mode, with perfectly matched components and quality materials. Conforming to GMP / FDA Guidelines and Explosion proof installations.
