Glass Polymerization Plant

glass polymerization plant; Polymerisationsanlage mit Glasreaktor

This glass polymerization plant contains exchangeable glass pressure reactors. They come in two sizes, 1 liter and 0.5 liters. The reactors feature a heating and cooling system and are equipped with three automatic gas feeds. You also have the option for manual solid and liquid feed. These reactors are controlled by a PLC – industrial control system, providing you with precise control for your experiments.

The clear and intuitive operation allows you to start polymerization quickly. Thanks to the compact, mobile design, you can use this glass polymerization plant flexibly and even operate it up to 12 bar within an autoclave room.


  • Intended use: Polymerization of ethylene or propylene.
  • Glass reactor 1 l with automatic pressure control.
  • Controlled dosing of 3 different gas feeds (e.g. ethylene, hydrogen, and propylene).
  • Liquid feed addition via burettes (maximum volume 250 ml).
  • Solid feeder to add slurries and solids under pressure.
  • Extendable via spare connections.
  • Max. pressure 12 bar in a safe room.
  • Design temperature 200 °C.
