CE 310 Chemical Reactors Trainer
Education / GUNT Hamburg / Process Engineering / Chemical Process Engineering /

The properties of different chemical reactors can be investigated by performing a saponification reaction using this trainer. The contact time and reaction temperature can be varied. Their influence on the conversion of reactants is observed in the respective reactor. The reactors are available as accessories. The unit contains two supply tanks for the liquid chemicals. Two variable speed diaphragm pumps pump the reactants through the reactor. Reactant conversion and reaction temperature are measured with a combined conductivity and temperature measuring unit. It is also possible to use PC data acquisition. The reaction is moderated using a controlled hot water circuit. The resulting reaction product is collected in a stainless steel tray in the unit.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

In conjunction with the various types of reactors available as accessories in the CE 310 series, comprehensive experiments on the reaction kinetics and on the conversion of reactants during a saponification reaction can be performed. Specifically, the following experiments can be performed:
- Variation of contact time of the two chemicals
- Variation of reaction temperature
- Adiabatic reaction in a batch reactor
- Isothermal reaction in a batch reactor
