Reactors consist of cylindrical vessel with dished ends with a top mounted agitator fitted with one or more impellers driven by an electric drive and motor. The reactor is also fitted with internal baffles and a jacket or internal coil depending on the type of reaction required. Reactors can be operated under pressure or vacuum and at temperature. Reactors are often constructed from various different metals depending on the corrosive nature of the process they are to be used on. 

The most common types of reactors include Glass Lined Reactors , Hastelloy Reactors and Stainless Steel Reactors . Reactors can range in size from lab scale type reactors to large industrial reactors depending the quantity of product the user wishes to produce.

Reactors are often manufactured by metal fabrication companies such as Ardeth Engineering, Langfields, Pfaudler and DeDietrich.
