Robinson-Mahoney "Micro" Stationary Catalyst Basket Reactor

The fixed annular catalyst basket has baffles inside and outside to control vortexes.

 
   

The fixed annular catalyst basket has baffles inside and outside to control vortexes. The rotating shaft is equipped with two impellers that draw fluid into the center of the annulus at the top and bottom and outward through the catalyst bed. The gradient-free design and a long duration circulation capability for multiple phases has made the Robinson-Mahoney the most widely used design for supported catalyst research with liquids.
