For customers requiring reactors on a much larger scale, Pfaudler UK Ltd is able to manufacture them in capacities of up to 68m³ (18,000Gl). Reactors on this scale can help some of our customers achieve excellent economies of scale for larger production batches. We utilise our Glasteel® technologies for manufacturing large-scale reactors and combining our expertise in mixing engineering technologies, pressure vessel engineering and heat transfer engineering, we are able to fabricate highly efficient reactors that deliver lower operating costs and high batch quality.
Our first glass-lined solution, Glasteel®, (the first of its kind in the industry) was invented in 1884 and since then we have further developed this technology and now offer a range of glass linings, each of which offers superior corrosion resistance:
Edlon is our own brand of fluoropolymer linings and coatings, which have been developed to provide an economical solution for use within corrosive chemical processing. They are also an excellent choice for applications where the presence of an alloy coating or lining may contaminate and affect the purity of the process materials. Our Eldon range incorporates the following choices, each of which has been developed to address the needs of specific applications:
Our range of mixing components has been created to enhance mixing performance, having been subjected to a number of different testing cycles and rounds of development. This has led to the generation of a range of mixing equipment to suit the individual requirements of different mixing applications such as low viscosity or high viscosity liquids, gas dispersion, solids suspension and shear sensitivity. Our blade range includes the following styles:
As well as our standard blade and turbines we manufacture bespoke mixing systems as well as drive systems, baffling, mechanical seals and Cryo-Lock®, our own multi-piece agitator system.
If you are looking for reactor accessories then look no further than the extensive range offered by Pfaudler UK Ltd. All accessories have been designed to be used in conjunction with Glasteel® and alloy reactors where containment of hazardous materials and operator safety is crucial. Our accessories have also been designed to offer a reduction in cycle times and improvements in the quality of the end product through improved processing efficiencies. Our product range includes: valves, mechanical seals, gaskets, sampling systems, pipes and fittings, manway covers, dip pipes and CIP (Clean in Place) systems. Detailed information of each of these accessories can be found on our website.
Pfaudler UK Ltd manufactures a range of filtration technologies in stainless steel and Glasteel® to suit a range of applications including standard, sterile and corrosive. Our Glasteel standard nutsche filter combines solid/liquid separation, via PTFE filtration technology, with unparalleled corrosion resistance. The Funda® centrifugal disc filter is a self-cleaning filer that is manufactured from alloy and falls within our Mavag brand of products. It affords the flexibility of both batch use and continuous operation. To address the needs for both filtration and agitation we have developed the Glasteel® agitated nutsche filter, which offers improved separation and automatic cake discharge.
Our range of pilot scale reactors are fabricated from Glasteel® to ensure they provide optimum levels of corrosion resistance whilst ensuring the integrity of sensitive formulations. These medium-scale rectors fall between bench-scale and full-scale solutions and are feature-rich whilst offering superb versatility. They have been designed to meet the needs of a range of processes. The <10µin fire-polished glass surface is easy to clean and thoughtful design equates to simple to maintenance, plus all of our pilot-scale reactors benefit from comprehensive support from our team of process engineers.
Our conical dryer blenders (CDBs) are available in a choice of stainless steel or glass-lined steel giving our customers the opportunity to choose a model to suit their particular application. All our CDBs have been designed to deliver optimised heat transfer for an efficient drying process whilst the filter plate assembly we use requires no centrifuge and therefore safely contains hazardous chemicals. We have developed a range of accessories that can be used in conjunction with our CDBs that are designed to provide performance enhancements. These items include corrosion resistant filter plate assemblies, pressure and vacuum transfer systems, drum charging systems, insulation and seal-welded stainless steel sheathing.
