SGL are a very suitable supply partner for the Chemical Industry as they are experienced at supplying all types of Glass-lined products which extend equipment life.

Our Standard Glass products are widely used in the chemical industry for several important reasons:

1. Corrosion Resistance: The glass lining provides excellent resistance to corrosion, making it ideal for handling corrosive chemicals and substances that would damage metal reactors.

2. Chemical Inertness: Glass is chemically inert, meaning it does not react with most chemicals. This prevents contamination of the product and ensures high purity.

3. Easy Cleaning: The smooth, non-porous surface of glass-lined reactors is easier to clean and sterilize, reducing the risk of cross-contamination between batches and simplifying maintenance.

4. Temperature Resistance: Glass-lined reactors can withstand a wide range of temperatures, making them suitable for processes that involve heating or cooling cycles.

5. Pressure Resistance: These reactors are designed to handle both high and low-pressure environments, providing flexibility in various chemical processes.

6. Durability: The combination of a strong metal shell with a glass lining provides structural strength while maintaining the chemical benefits of glass. This makes the reactors durable and long-lasting.

7. Regulatory Compliance: In industries like pharmaceuticals and food processing, glass-lined reactors help in meeting stringent regulatory requirements regarding purity and contamination.

8. Versatility: They are suitable for a wide range of processes including reactions, crystallization, distillation, and mixing, making them a versatile choice for many different applications in the chemical industry.

Overall, our  offer a combination of chemical resistance, durability, and ease of maintenance that makes them particularly valuable for safely and efficiently conducting a variety of chemical processes. This makes our technology ideal to protect equipment, such as large vessels, storage tanks and pipework from the chemically aggressive compounds and process media used in this industry sector. However care must be taken to ensure the correct compatibility of the glass-lining. SGL's experienced application engineers and technical chemical compatibility database can assist in this process.
