The following is the explanation of why this stainless steel reactor was made with these specifications and configurations.

1、The volume of the reactor is 500 liters, which is at the upper limit volume of a pilot reactor. Usually, the volume of a pilot reactor is from 50 liters to 500 liters.

2、The temperature range of 5°C to 250°C requires the reactor itself to have a very good tolerance to heat and cold. The reason for this design is that the reactants need to be subjected to high-temperature
reactions, the hydrogenation.
A Jacket applying electrically heated oil bath is applied for this pharma reactor, partly because of the convenience and ease of operation, and partly because the oil does not reach its boiling point at 250°C and does not put additional pressure on the jacket, thus ensuring safety.
This is also why water or steam is not used for heating in this case.
The use of water cooling in the inner coil ensures that the temperature is reduced to room temperature at the end of the reaction. The 3.3 sqm of heat exchange area of the coil ensures that cooling can be done quickly and efficiently, avoiding excessive waiting times.

3、Because the products are viscous, the smoothness of the reaction chamber is required to reach Ra≤0.4μm, which ensures that the reactor can be cleaned quickly after the reaction is finished.  The reaction can be continued with the next batch in a short time.
The configuration of the explosion-proof components ensures the safety of the operator.
Also, the presence of the sight glass ensures that the operator can monitor the situation inside the reactor at any time, ensuring that the progress of the reaction can be understood at any time.

4、Of course, this reaction uses stainless steel S31603, which has better corrosion resistance than S30408.

Usually, if the customer does not understand the reaction process, we would suggest the customer seek help from the design institute or chemical reaction laboratory first. After the design institute or chemical reaction laboratory provides the exact reaction parameters, volume, temperature, pressure, and the characteristics of the reaction medium (mainly the corrosiveness, whether it is flammable and explosive, etc.), we will design a preliminary drawing and provide the reactor material and the corresponding dimensions for the customer to make a final confirmation.

In all reactions, safety is the priority from the beginning to the end. This is why we often have to repeatedly confirm the reaction conditions with the customer.

We believe that recommending reactors to customers only according to their applications is a lack of consideration and neglect of safety.

We also hope that the majority of users will carefully distinguish the ability of suppliers when choosing them. For unprofessional producers and manufacturers, you must not consider them. To avoid irreparable tragedies in the future.
