Simple and high performance reactor for routine kilo lab and pilot plant production applications
A well-performing reactor lets you achieve high yield and save energy and the time that you spend on your process. Ring Baffle helps you to achieve this.
Ring Baffle is a unique feature available only from AGI. It is a series of ridge-like structures in the thermal wall of the reactor vessel which direct the flow of thermal transfer fluid uniformly around the process vessel.
The uniform flow and local turbulence produced by Ring Baffle enhances the thermal exchange between the wall and process. This effect is not possible in vessels that don’t have Ring Baffle.
This video shows the flow pattern of a black dye in thermal jacket with and without ring baffle. Ring baffle distributes the dye more evenly compared to the vessel without the ring baffle.
Vessels are a core component of a reaction system. AGI glass vessels are available with double wall (thermal) jacket or triple wall (thermal and vacuum) jacket. Both types are available with or without Ring Baffle. All vessels made by AGI have thermal jackets up to full working volume.
Optimized for excellent heat transfer
The inner vessel wall thickness is optimized using AGI’s propriety resizing method. The benefits of this are :
- Improved thermal exchange
- Reduction of energy expenditure
- Improved process temperature control
Complete jacket cover
Our pilot scale vessels have thermal jackets that cover the process vessel completely. The benefits of this are :
- Efficient use of thermal energy
- Complete immersion of process in set-point temperature
- Better product yield due to uniform and consistent temperature treatment
High thermal shock resistence
Our double and triple wall vessels have the best thermal shock resistance (ΔT) for glass reactors available on the market. This allows for versatility in your process and marks the performance factor of our vessels.
- ΔT for double wall vessels: 110 °C
- ΔT for triple wall vessels: 60 °C
AGI reaction vessels are designed with scale-up in mind. Our triple wall vessel geometry closely resembles the geometry of industrial glass lined reactors.

|1:1 ~ 1:1.5||1:1 ~ 1:2.5|

The perfect alignment of a flush valve and its PTFE shaft with the drain port of the reaction vessel provides a continuous surface that leaves negligible dead space. This way, there is minimal stagnation and everything is in movement during agitation.
Cleaning a reactor should be easy to keep the workflow simple and prevent cross-contamination from batch-to-batch. Our reaction vessels are designed with this in mind.
Newly designed AGI stirrer bearings have an extended configuration with glass and PEEK sliding parts. The advantages of AGI’s design are stable and debris-free stirring.
Mass flow pattern is an important factor to consider when you want to achieve a perfect chemical reaction process. We offer three types of impellers with axial or tangential flows. AGI impellers are made of SS rods encapsulated in PTFE for excellent chemical resistance and mechanical strength. If your application requires a special flow, see our advanced impeller options. If you find these are not sufficient, please contact us and we can help you to find a solution that suits your specific process.
