Ross Announces Skid-Mounted Agitated Reactors
Ross offers a wide range of custom-designed agitated reactors for chemical processes and sanitary applications. This selection includes new designs of skid-mounted high-pressure reactors specially developed to meet the exact needs of end users.
Pictured are 30-gallon dished-bottom reactors specially treated with corrosion-resistant coating on the internal vessel surfaces and top-entering impeller agitator. The flush bottom ball valve, removable thermowell, dip tube and threaded connections in the product-wetted area are all made of Hastelloy C-276. Designed for 100 psig internal pressure at 200oF, the reactor vessels are built to ASME Code Section VIII, Div. 1 and registered with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. A dry-running single mechanical seal comes with each agitator to make it suitable for operation at the in-tank pressures. A 50-psig baffled jacket on the vessel sides and bottom allows for heating of the product to the right reaction temperature.
Powered by an explosion-proof motor to run up to 500 rpm, the variable speed agitator delivers precise mixing at all stages of the reaction. An intrinsically safe local control panel installed on the skid enables operators to control mixer speed, read power load and start/stop the reactor. The mixer can also be controlled from a remote PLC control panel.
