Cladding Plate Reactor

I What is cladding plate reactor?

In the realm of chemical engineering, the use of cladding plate reactors has emerged as a significant technological advancement. These reactors are defined by their unique construction, with the entire reactor body crafted from cladding plates. This introduction delves into the world of cladding plate reactors, examining their composition, advantages, and wide-ranging applications across industries.

A cladding plate reactor is a reactor whose body is made of a cladding plate.

Usually, the cladding plate being used is made from stainless steel and carbon steel. There are also other types of non-ferrous metals to be composited as a cladding plate.

Brief introduction of Cladding Plate:
Composition: Base material, composite material
Layers: 2-layer or 3-layer
Production method:  Explosive welding or Explosion-rolling
High strength, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, low cost 

The picture on the left side is the 316L cladding plate.
Base material: carbon steel
Composite material: SS 316L
Carbon steel layer offers high pressure resistance, and the SS316L offers corrosion resistance. 

II The Essence of Cladding Plate Reactors

At its core, a cladding plate reactor is characterized by a body constructed entirely from cladding plates. These plates typically consist of stainless steel and carbon steel, although non-ferrous metals can also be incorporated for specific purposes. What sets these reactors apart is the multi-layered design of the cladding plate. This layered construction, comprising two or three metal plates, just like a metal sandwich, affords the reactor a host of advantages, including cost-efficiency and superior performance.

The adoption of cladding plates is driven by the desire to achieve optimal performance at a reasonable cost.

Special circumstances often necessitate the use of cladding plates.

For instance, if there is a case requiring external induction heating, a large volume vessel ( over 3,000 liters ) , while the medium inside the vessel is corrosive, then the use of composite plates of carbon steel and stainless steel becomes imperative.  Compared with using pure stainless steel; this carbon steel plus stainless steel cladding plate can meet induction heating, corrosion resistance, furthermore maintaining cost-effectiveness. It can be seen that there are many combinations of composite plates for different requirements. For example stainless steel carbon steel cladding plates, titanium carbon steel cladding plates, nickel aluminum cladding plates, and so on.

III Support from WHGCM

WHGCM is at the forefront of promoting the utilization of non-ferrous metal cladding plates, encompassing materials such as titanium, nickel, zirconium, Hastelloy, Inconel, and Monel. This commitment to innovation underscores the adaptability of cladding plate reactors in various industrial settings. On top of that, WHGCM uses the explosion method to change metal into the cladding plate, and this way is to utilize the energy of the explosives to weld different metals of a large area.

Advantages over Reactors made from common materials

Compared to conventional glass and enamel reactors, cladding plate reactors offer distinct advantages. Beyond excellent chemical stability,cladding plate reactor exhibit thermal solid conductivity, rapid temperature elevation, and high-temperature resistance.

IV Applications

Thanks to the cladding plate's high specific strength, excellent heat and corrosion resistance, and fracture toughness, reactors are widely used in petroleum, chemical industry, rubber, pesticide, dyestuff, medicine, and food, to complete vulcanization, nitration, hydrogenation, alkylation, polymerization, condensation, and other processes. Physical changes such as cooling, liquid extraction, and gas absorption require stirring devices for good results. The reactor is an ideal equipment for the chemical, pharmaceutical, and other industries. Consequently, cladding plate reactors have become indispensable equipment for chemical, pharmaceutical, and numerous other industries.
