The CH Reactor is an enhanced piece of processing equipment that can create an inert environment, or use high vacuum, heating or cooling and mixing to facilitate chemical reactions. The improved heat transfer and mass transfer (mixing) increases the process efficiency, yield and quality of products at a much smaller footprint compared to conventional batch reactors. Smaller reaction volume can offer safety for highly reactive or unstable processes. Primary reactants, catalysts and other reagents are fed through the side feed ports and injection ports distributed along the barrel.
Once inside, the chemical reaction is initiated and enhanced by mixing and heat. If used a deep vacuum draw acts upon the material to remove any by-products, volatiles and particulates formed during the reaction. The vapors can then be filtered, condensed and collected for reuse or disposal. The CH Reactor offers better control over reaction conditions including heat transfer, residence time and mixing intensity to produce repeatable chemical reactions.
