HHT is specialized in designing plug flow reactors for fast exothermic reactions such as phosgenations, oxidations, ethoxylations, etc. For these type of reactors to achieve excellent mixing HHT utilizes static mixers to ensure that all the material processed has radial mixing and the same residence time as it passes through the reactor.
The key design parameters for the HH Plug Flow Reactor are:
- Pump flow rates
- Reactants introduction prior to the static mixer
- Static Mixer design
- Material of construction
- Residence time
- Cooler design following the static mixer
- Online analytics
- Flow Control
HHT is studying the conversion of propoxylation process from a batch to a continuous operation by means of the plug flow reactor.
