Parr Reactor Featured in Chemical Engineering Magazine

Model 4578 High Temperature/High Pressure Reactor as seen in Chemical Engineering
Model 4578 High Temperature/High Pressure Reactor as seen in Chemical Engineering

See one of Parr’s High Pressure Reactors in the latest issue of Chemical Engineering Magazine!

Their report on “Commercializing Process Technologies” discusses considerations for scaling up a reaction process in the chemical industry.

Experience shows that over a year’s time, automating a typical pilot plant costs less than manual operation and improves data quality. Check out their report below and contact us to find out how Parr’s fully automated bench-scale and pilot-scale reactor systems can be customized to your requirements. Let us build one for you!

Parr Introduces New Machined Stirrers

For difficult, highly viscous substances

Machined Stirrer

 

Parr’s line of excellent stirrers has been expanded to include a new robust spiral stirrer, machined from a solid bar of stainless steel or any other material in which Parr reactors are offered.

This one piece spiral design is specifically tailored to handle difficult, highly viscous substances such as heavy oils, polymers, and even slurries with significant solids content.

Features Include:

  • The new machined stirrers can be customized for reactors with flat or tapered base geometries, with both upflow and downflow blade options available.
  • Curved scoop design along the bottom blades to help lift heavier materials from the bottom of the cylinder.
  • No second set of blade required due to the new solid, single unit design.
