Scientific glass equipment manufacturers

Scientific glass blowing for bespoke laboratory glassware

At Glass Solutions, we take pride in being one of the top scientific glass equipment manufacturers in the UK, delivering precision-crafted products that meet the stringent demands of the scientific community.

High quality scientific glassware is often overlooked as a critical part of the R&D or manufacturing process, but similarly to the tyres on your car (that only part to touch the road) glass components are normally the only thing in direct contact with your chemical process. Having the right elements for success is essential when trying to push the boundaries, without the right glassware it’s like trying to drive on ice with summer tyres, it just doesn’t work.

What is laboratory glassware?

Laboratory glassware is a fundamental part of any science lab, as ubiquitous as a weighing balance or fume cupboard. In its simplest form lab glassware is a vessel, flask or tube to hold chemicals, in some cases keeping its contents safe from the outside world of decades. At the more complex end of the spectrum are vacuum distillation systems, wiped film evaporators, vacuum jacket reactors, optical cells, and many other examples.

Laboratory glassware applications

While the primary focus of Glass Solutions is serving engineers and chemical engineers that are either manufacturing systems which include a glass component or producing a chemical product and need glassware with the production environment. It also has many years of experience working direct with end users and therefore built up a thorough understanding of the discovery and development process. No matter where you are on your journey, you should find it straight forward to convey your requirements with minimum friction.

Application examples:

  • Reaction
  • Filtration
  • Concentration
  • Evaporation
  • Purification
  • Separations
  • Distillation
  • Gas collection and emission
  • Bio reactors
  • Laser and optical analysis

Selecting the right laboratory glassware

The laboratory is a hazardous environment, ensuring that laboratory glassware is correctly designed and specified is essential to keep users safe. Glass Solutions knowledge of end user applications and glass engineering mean that we are the perfect partner when developing any new lab equipment. We are happy to work with your development team and share the insights which have been accumulated over decades. Other laboratory glassware manufacturers may have some of this knowledge too, but they are unlikely to have the experience of applying this to a marketable product or controlled production process.

Why choose Glass Solutions for your scientific glass equipment?
