Glass Reactor as a Device Used in Chemical Reaction

Over the years, as a very ideal device for research and development of compounds in the chemical and pharmaceutical, glass reactor always play a key role in modern industries.

In daily life, there are a lot of chemical reactions which are happened around us actually, for example: a rust bike – rusting is a non-reversible change; however, another chemical reaction occurs and iron can be extracted from the rust if rust is mixed with magnesium powder. Certainly, you can find other types of chemical reactions like baking eggs, batteries, and so on. Chemical reaction is the change of a substance into a new one that has a different chemical identity; and it is usually accompanied by easily observed physical effects. Chemical reactions are classified according to the kind of change that takes place; and glass reactors are just are a device used in chemical reaction.

Classically, chemical reactions encompass changes that only involve the positions of electrons in the forming and breaking of chemical bonds between atoms; and it happen at a characteristic reaction rate at a given temperature and chemical concentration, and rapid reactions are often described as spontaneous. More importantly, chemical reactions are usually characterized by a chemical change and they yield one or more products, which usually have properties different from the reactants; how a physical reaction does. Different chemical reactions are used in combination in chemical synthesis in order to get a desired product; and series of chemical reactions catalyzed by enzymes form metabolic pathways in biochemistry, by which syntheses and decompositions ordinarily impossible in conditions within a cell are performed.

 As the name suggested, glass reactors are made from glass; at the same time, chemical reactions also can made from stainless steel which I am surely many of us are so familiar. Also called as inox steel or inox from French ‘inoxydable’, stainless steel is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass in metallurgy; it does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does. In addition, stainless steel has ability to resistant to attack from acids; and it also can be resistant to corrosion and staining, low maintenance and familiar luster so it is an ideal material for many applications. In short, stainless steel products always have very good physical and chemical performance.
