How to heat a reactor?

- Apr 23, 2020-

The reaction is a container with physical or chemical reaction with heating, evaporation, cooling, and low-speed mixing functions. It is normally used in the field of petroleum, chemical, rubber, pesticide, dye, medicine, food to complete the process of vulcanization, nitrification, hydrogenation, polymerization, and condensation. 


For reaction, the heating is required. But do you know how to heat a reactor? Generally, the heating method of the reactors is divided into two modes, regarding the different heating material heaters.  One is using stainless steel resistance heating element. Normally use the flange tubular electric heating elements to insert in the reactor kettle to heat the oil and transfer the heat energy to the chemical raw materials in the reactor. Another way is to insert tubular heating elements directly into the reactor or evenly distribute the heating tubes around the wall. This model is called internal heating. The internal heating type heats up quickly and has high efficiency.


The other mode is the far-infrared electric heating device. That is, the electric heater wraps the bottom and the middle and lower parts of the reaction kettle for heating. The far-infrared electric heating device has a large heating area, stable and fast temperature rise, uniform heat release, convenient temperature control, can be controlled by upper, middle and lower sections, and the temperature of the kettle wall in the kettle is easy to control, without any side effects on the contents of the kettle There will be no material carbonization, no noise, no pollution, long service life (more than 30,000 hours), and significant energy saving (more than 28%).
