The HH Loop Reactor is suited for making high pressure emulsion polymerization of special engineering plastics and have been industrially implemented in making hydrogenated PCHE (styrene-butadiene) and successfully tested for polyketones.
The Loop Reactor benefits for these type of reactions are:
- high mass transfer
- no beard formations due to plug flow behaviour of reactor
- no dead spots
- smaller reactor capital cost due to smaller reactor size
- high capacity
- easy to clean
