R.T.D. Studies In Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (Peristaltic Pump Feed System)

MODAL NO: MTCRE-104B

QTY


RTD Reactions:

Real reactors do not satisfy the idealized flow patterns, back mix flow or plug flow deviation from ideality can be due to channeling of fluid through the vessel, recycling of fluid within the vessel or due to the presence of stagnant region or pockets of fluid in the vessel. To predict the exact behavior of a vessel as a Chemicals reactor, RTD or stimulus response technique is used.

To predict the exact behavior of a vessel as a Chemicals reactor, RTD or stimulus response technique is used. The setup consists of one feed tank through which water is fed to the reactor. The flow rate can be varied by changing the speed of peristaltic pump. The continuously stirred tank reactor made of Stainless Steel is provided for understanding the R.T.D. characteristics.  

EXPERIMENTATION:

To plot RTD curve for a CSTR. Using pulse tracer. 

To determine the Dispersion No. 

UTILITIES REQUIRED :

Electricity Supply: Single Phase, 220 V AC, 50 Hz, 5-15 Amp combined socket with earth connection. Earth voltage should be less than 5 volts. 

Water Supply.
