Original Press Release:
New Continuous Hybrid Reactor Increases Control Over Process Conditions for Safe, Repeatable Chemical Reactions
Readco Advance Drives Reactions, Mixes, Degasses, Polymerizes, and More in One Step
York, PA: Process equipment manufacturer Readco Kurimoto, LLC, York, Pa. (www.readco.com), has introduced the Readco Continuous Hybrid Reactor (CHR). Devised to facilitate safe, efficient, repeatable chemical reactions, the Continuous Hybrid Reactor features a proprietary design that develops a deep vacuum to promote a high level of control over heat transfer rate, residence time, mixing intensity, and other reaction conditions. Setting twin, co-rotating, hollow paddle shafts within a closed, onepiece, jacketed barrel, the new CHR offers heating, cooling, mixing, degassing, and other processes in a single step, automatically transforming liquids into powders or high viscosity slurries, and powders or pellets into high viscosity slurries or pastes.
Ideal for processing elastomers, adhesives, sealants, and other temperature- and/or oxygen-sensitive materials, the CHR feeds primary liquid, slurry, or melted solid reactants, catalysts and other reagents through an injection port in the barrel. The integrated heating and mixing action drives the reaction during retention times of up to one-hour or longer as needed. Consistent product quality is assured while any vapors, volatiles and/or particulates are eliminated, reduced, or safely filtered and reused or removed.
The CHR integrates the mixing capabilities of the company's Continuous Processor and the drying capabilities of its SC Processor to serve as a hybrid model. The line of continuous process equipment is offered custom-manufactured in the company's York, Pa. headquarters based on performance testing conducted on full-size equipment in its on-site laboratory.
