Biomass: Tumbled, not stirred

Parr Horizontal Reactor Systems

Stirring biomass such as straw or grasses is not easy to do in a vertical reactor. Parr offers a line of reactors that has been developed to function in the horizontal position, allowing the internal stirrers tumble the material rather than try to stir it with a standard vertical stirrer.

Horizontal reactors can be designed for capacities ranging from 0.1 liter to 10 liters. The larger systems can be controlled pneumatically to tilt the system upright to open the bottom drain valve. These horizontal rectors can obtain temperatures up to 350 °C and maximum pressures of 1900 psig.
