CEZ – Laminar Flow Reactor
The Armfield CEZ-Laminar Flow Reactor is an example of an ideal tubular reactor.
The CEZ Laminar Flow Reactor (shown with CEXC) demonstrates step and pulse changes for plug flow characterisation and steady-state conversion for a second order reaction. The Armfield Laminar Flow Reactor is a tubular reactor made of clear acrylic and mounted on a floor standing steel frame, with two diffusers packed with glass beads located at the ends. A static premixer at the bottom of the column provides premixing of the reagents entering the reactor and improves the flow distribution. It is one of five reactor types which are interchangeable on the
Computer Controlled Reactor Service Unit (CEXC).
Reactions are monitored by conductivity probe as the conductivity of the solution changes with conversion of the reactants to product. In addition, all the experiments are followed visually by means of the reactor transparency and the use of colour indicators in all the experiments. Shown with CEXC
