The Standard Group of Companies is a leading supplier of equipment in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.

The Schematic Engineering Industries division specialise in the manufacture of reactor sampling systems for many applications.

Reactors are vital in pharmaceutical and chemical processing plants as they are designed to safely contain chemical reactions of substances in a pressurised environment.

Essentially a sample taken from a process, including a reactor should represent the exact constituents of the reaction without any contamination.

Validation of the reaction will then confirm the process media meets all requirements of the specification, and at this stage the batch will either be rejected or allowed to move to the next stage of the process.

When taking a process media sample, especially at elevated temperatures, hazards are a major concern for pharmaceutical plants, especially when taking the sample from a reactor where the reaction is hazardous.

Over spill and unnecessary exposure to the atmosphere of sampling liquids is a constant cause of batch rejection, resulting in reprocessing and quality-related issues ultimately leading to personnel risk and lost profit.

A key advantage of a reactor sampling system is the plant will receive a quick, reliable and safe test result, which can also be taken without any process interruptions.Schematic reactor sampling5 lr

Reactor Sampling Systems generally fall within two categories: -

  • Manual systems
  • Automated systems

Additionally, with samples taken in a closed loop system, enables operators to visualise the operation clearly, be in full control and address anomalies in the process accordingly.Sampling sq

Key advantages of using a reactor sampling system: -

  • Operator safety
  • Sample check a high-temperatures
  • Stable and accurate results
  • Clear visibility during operation and cleaning
