Clever design and exceptional robustness

Read SpinChem’s new application note to learn how the robustness and clever design of the rotating bed reactor (RBR) circumvents problems associated with a loosely packed fixed bed reactor (FBR) column.

Robust performance

Through flow simulation, the SpinChem® RBR was found to be extremely robust with respect to the density of the packed solid phase bed within. Adverse effects of channelling, that can occur in non-optimally packed solid phase beds, had very little impact on the performance of the RBR, while the performance of the FBR was greatly diminished.

Avoid flow channelling complications

The overall flow through a SpinChem® RBR will increase as channelling occurs, meaning that the flow through a specific, optimally packed point of the bed, will stay unchanged, even as the flow rate through a more loosely packed part of the bed increases due to less resistance. This is contrary to FBRs, where flow channelling causes major problems.
