Flow Reactors Overview

    Flow reactors assembly for flow chemistry

    Vapourtec supply a comprehensive range of precision flow reactors covering a broad range of flow chemistry applications. The flow reactors are flexible and easy to use and can be used on both the R-Series and E-Series flow chemistry systems.

    Flow reactors product range

    The reactors currently available range from small bore tube reactors through to large bore tube reactors, packed bed column reactors, microreactors and mixers. All our reactors are interchangeable on our flow systems and the full product range can be viewed below.
