The HH Loop Reactor is suited for esterification primarily due to its smooth temperature control and the implementation of a closed gas loop circuit. The gas loop circuit operates through the HH Jet Mixer, which is able to move the reactor’s headspace at high rates through inline condensers, thus removing the reaction water and shifting the chemical equilibrium to the desired product.
Esterification plants range from 5 to 300 tons per day capacity.
- esterificatio of waste fats
- esterification of FFA in renewable fuels such as FAME and Biodiesel
