High Pressure Stirred Laboratory (Batch) Catalyst Reactor

Used to create a slurry using powdered catalyst in homogeneous catalyst research


The stirred (batch) reactor is used to create a slurry using powdered catalyst in homogeneous catalyst research. Agitation creates isothermal conditions and allows the researcher to select the reaction time. Select the Dispersi-max impeller for circulating the head space gas into the liquid phase. Other impeller shapes are offered to simulate other processes.
