The Fluitec ContiplantLAB Calorimeter is a small scale device especially suitable to obtain thermodynamic information for a scale-up of continuous processes in tubular reactors. This is useful because the released heat can strongly depend on the reaction control, especially for non-selective reactions. An axial temperature profile along the tube reactor can be recorded and the specific heat of reaction can be determined by means of heat balances and segmental dynamic parameters.

  • The system consists of an insulated tubular reactor, dosing systems, preheaters, temperature sensors and flow meters connected to a data acquisition system for that enables evaluation of major and minor exotherms along the flow path
  • Small diameters: 4.6mm to 16mm
  • Low throughputs:  <2kg/h
  • Easy dismantling allows for basic tests on reactions during which deposits are formed
  • Strongly exothermic reactions
  • Housing Materials: 1.4404 / 1.4571 Hastelloy (other materials available on request)
  • Maximum temperature range: -46°C to 300°C
  • Maximum allowable pressure: 60 bar at 300°C
