Technical Description: In an ideal CSTR (i.e. an ideal steady state flow reactor) the contents in reactor, this set-up are used to study a non-catalytic homogeneous second order liquid phase reaction under ambient condition. The setup consists of three CSTR arranged in series and two feed tanks through which two reactants are fed to the reactor. Rotameters are provided to measure the individual flow of Chemicals. The flow rate can be adjusted by operating the needle valves provided on respective Rota meter. The compressed air is used for circulation of feed. Reactants from feed tanks enter in the first CSTR and are passed to second CSTR and so on. For analysis samples are collected from different ports provided. Pressure Regulator, Pressure Gauge and Safety Valve are fitted in the compressed air line.
To study the performance of Cascade of three equal volumes CSTR's in series for the specification of a reaction.
To draw the performance chart for the reactor system and evaluate the reaction rate constant at ambient condition.
Required for Operation:
Compressed Air Supply at 2 Bar, 0.5 CFM.
Electricity Supply : 1 Phase, 220 V AC, 0.5 kW.
Instruments, Laboratory Glassware and Chemicals required for analysis as per the system adopted.
