In the rapidly evolving landscape of chemical processing, the selection of equipment is pivotal to achieving operational excellence. De Dietrich Process Systems stands at the forefront of this industry, offering the Flextech Stainless Steel Reactors. These reactors embody the pinnacle of engineering excellence, tailored to meet the diverse needs of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and chemical processing industries. Let's dive into the enhanced features and unparalleled benefits of these reactors.

Superior Material Quality for Unmatched Durability 


The foundation of Flextech reactors lies in their construction from premier austenitic stainless steel grades (1.4404, 1.4301, 1.4539, 1.4571) and nickel-based alloys such as Hastelloy C22 and C276. These materials are not just about durability; they're about ensuring your reactor withstands the harshest conditions, offering superior corrosion resistance that is essential for handling aggressive substances safely and efficiently. 


Exceptional Surface Finish and Design: The Hallmark of Quality 


A step ahead in design, Flextech reactors boast a mechanically polished product contact surface of Ra ≤ 0.8 µm and external surfaces polished to Ra ≤ 1.6 µm. This meticulous attention to surface finish ensures optimal cleanliness and minimizes product adhesion, critical for maintaining product purity. Compliant with EN 13445 and carrying the CE marking as per 2014/68/EU (PED) Module G, these reactors not only meet but exceed the highest safety and quality standards. 


Advanced Working Parameters and Features for Versatile Operations 


Flextech reactors are engineered to operate within a broad temperature range of -25 to 200°C and pressure settings from -1 to 6 barg. Their nozzle connections, compliant with EN1092-1 type 11 B PN16, and ATEX conformity for explosion-proof design, underscore their adaptability to diverse operational needs and regulatory environments. 

Cutting-edge Agitation and Temperature Control for Precision Processing 


Featuring an array of agitator types derived from De Dietrich’s esteemed glass-lined portfolio, the reactors offer unparalleled mixing efficiency. With options for mechanical seals tailored to various process requirements, and precise temperature control facilitated by dual Pt100 probes, these reactors guarantee optimal reaction conditions, enhancing product quality and process reproducibility.
