Bench scale stirred tank slurry reactor
« on: December 22, 2010, 08:55:54 PM »
          I am trying to design a bench scale high pressure stirred tank slurry reactor. The reactant is insoluble in water and hence forms a slurry, it is supposed to react with water and hydrogen gas (Also helps in agitation)  in the presence of solid catalyst. The products are soluble in water and i intend to take it out of the reactor through a membranes so the unreacted solid and catalyst remain in the reactor.

Looking for any helpful tips, ideas, comments, and bench or large scale commercial reactor systems you might know of.

What is the reactant?

What is the pressure? (how high is high pressure)

Without knowing what your process conditions are, how can anyone give you advice? I wouldn't focus on building a reactor anyway--such things are available commercially, for a price.
Neither flask nor beaker.
