Jacketed Reactor

Jacketed reactor used for many kind of process like heating, cooling, reaction

Conventional Jackets second shell is installed over a portion of the vessel, creating an annular space within which cooling or heating medium flows. A simple conventional jacket, with no internal components, is generally very inefficient for heat transfer because the flow media has an extremely low velocity resulting in a low heat transfer coefficient. Condensing media, such as steam or Dowtherm A, is an exception because in this case the heat transfer coefficient doesn’t depend on velocity or turbulence, but instead is related to the surface area upon which the media condenses and the efficiency of removing condensate. Internals include baffles that direct flow in a spiral pattern around the jacket, and agitating nozzles that cause high turbulence at the point where the fluid is introduced into the jacket.

During Exothermic reaction heat will be released by reactants and during Endothermic reaction heat will be absorbed. In both the processes temperature should be controlled as per process requirements for the perfect result. A jacketed vessel will facilitate the above.

Jacketed reactor has a jacket surrounding the main vessel. During reaction, temperature of reactants is controlled by circulating heating or cooling media through the jacket. Ideally suitable for the heating below 150 Centigrade (302 Fahrenheit). Commonly used heat transfer media include water, steam, hot oil such as Therminol™, and Dowtherm A.

Abster Equipment is a proven jacketed vessel manufacturer. Jacketed vessel can also be offered in Dimple design .
