Continuous flow reactors can provide many benefits over batch processes. This article answers why and how
Robert Ashe, AM Technology
Small chemical reactors offer a number of benefits compared to large reactors, such as better heat transfer and mixing. While small batch vessels are impractical at the industrial scale, continuous flow reactors can provide the benefits of small physical size without the practical difficulties of multiple vessels. This article considers the four basic needs of flow reactors (volumetric capacity, heat transfer, plug flow and mixing) and how they influence choice of equipment.
