Standard Glass Lining Technology is part of the Standard of Companies and an international, leading supplier of process equipment into the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.

Key pieces of equipment in the Standard range include innovative, patent pending Glass Lined Heat Exchangers that are ideal when processing corrosive and chemically aggressive liquids.

These Glass Lined Heat Exchangers are processed by Standard Glass Lining Technology, who are part of the Standard Group. They are designed in the Shell and Tube format for optimum heat transfer efficiency.

A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer thermal energy between two or more fluids, which are at different temperatures. In most cases, the fluids can exchange heat without direct contact. Shell and Tube heat exchangers work by passing the fluid/gas through a series of tubes that are encompassed in a large metal shell.

Shell and tube heat exchangers are typically used for high pressure applications. These pressures are also used in processes which require a vacuum condition to carry out the heat transfer process.

These heat exchangers are the most effective type of heat control device, which can be very beneficial when using toxic gases and chemicals.

Typical part of the technical specificationS2 heat exchangers

  • Heat Transfer Area: from 0.1m2
  • Materials: 316L Stainless Steel Tube, 304L Stainless Steel Shell
  • Gasket: PTFE, EPDM, FEP
  • Surface Finish: 0.3 - 0.8 micrometers MP

Heat exchangers are generally made from stainless steel for the shell and the tube with a polished surface finish.

Standard Glass Lining now offer glass lined heat exchangers for additional benefits to the process and plant uptime.

Applications of Glass Lined Heat Exchangers

  • General plant water systems
  • Water for injection (WIP) applications
  • Purified water systems
  • Purified plus water systems
  • Clean-in-Place (CIP) applications
  • General product heating and cooling duties

Benefits of Glass Lined Heat Exchangers

  • Improved corrosion resistance
  • No possible leak between the shell and the coil, making the design ideal for GMP applications.
  • Greater flexibility
  • Reduced contamination
  • Easier to clean
  • More cost effective

Added Benefits of Glass Lined Heat Exchangers

  • Highly efficient heat removal through fluid conduction.
  • Ideal when a secondary (shell) fluid source is available.

Standard Group of Companies based in Hyderabad, India are a world leading manufacturer and provider of reactors into the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Standard Glass Lining Technology Pvt. Ltd. (SGL) which is a part of the Standard Group specialise in providing solutions for many glass-lined applications. SGL is one of only a few companies who manufacture glass lined solutions for critical equipment such as Reactors.

This gives us the opportunity to give our customers the best quality, latest technology and cost-effective products for the expanding Pharmaceutical sector.

Reactors are usually made from varying grades of stainless steel. The Standard Group can provide reactors manufactured from stainless steel grades however there are many benefits from glass lined technology using either carbon or stainless base materials with Glass (or enamel) surfaces in contact with the processed product.

Glass Lined Reactors

Glass Lined reactors are primarily used for carrying out critical chemical processes where corrosion resistance and chemical inertness are of critical importance.

Steel reactors, whilst very important in the industry, have many drawbacks compared to the glass lined options.

Our AE type reactors consist of two major parts i.e. the vessel and a cover which are manufactured as per DIN 28136 standard. We also supply CE reactors based on customer requirements.

Manufacture of our Glass lined products involves 3 key stages:

  1. Glass Manufacture.
  2. Steel Fabrication.
  3. Combing the 2 elements.

All these 3 processes are carried out at our 100,000sqft facility in India which is currently expanding with a further 200,000 facility due to huge demand.
