Plug Flow Tubular Reactor

Plug Flow Tubular Reactor(Straight Tube Type) (Compressed Air Feed System)

Product Code:In stock

*An ENGLISH instruction manual with elaborate experimental procedures and block diagram etc. shall be provided with the training system set-up.


Ideally in a Plug Flow Reactor (PFTR) mixing is not performed in the direction of flow but it is performed in perpendicular to the direction of flow. Concentration of reactants varies along the length of reactor but not in radial direction. This set-up is used to study a non-catalytic homogeneous reaction under ambient condition. The set up consists of two feed tanks through which two reactants are fed to the reactor. Rotameters are provided to measure the individual flow of Chemicals. The flow rate can be adjusted by operating the needle valves provided on respective Rotameter. The compressed air is used for circulation of feed. A straight tube type reactor kept horizontally and inclined upward at outlet from where samples are collected for analysis. Pressure Regulator, Pressure Gauge and Safety Valve are fitted in the compressed air line.
