Three times better heat transfer
For a customer from Austria THALETEC manufactured a 16m3 glass lined reactor. To reduce heating and cooling times, this reactoris equipped with a temperature-controlled baffle, the THALETEC PowerBaffle. The PowerBaffle is a heat exchanger which is built into the reactor.
In this specific case, the heat exchange surface could be increased by a factor of 3; correspondingly, heating and cooling times are also reduced almost to a third.
THALETEC manufactures PowerBaffles for reactors up to a volume of 32,000 l. PowerBaffles can also be installed in existing reactors of other manufacturers. They completely replace the existing baffle including the temperature probe installed in it.
Further details about PowerBaffles can be found in Flyer Flyer K018.
