CEB-MKIII Transparent batch reactor

 

CEB-MKIII Transparent batch reactor

The CEB-MkIII Transparent batch reactor is a double-skinned glass vessel with a one-litre internal working volume, fitted with a variable-speed agitator.

Description

The CEB-MkIII Transparent batch reactor is a double-skinned glass vessel with a one-litre internal working volume, fitted with a variable-speed agitator.

Hot water from the CEXC or cold water from the CW17 can be circulated through the jacket for temperature control purposes maintaining the reactor contents at constant temperature.

Glands in the clear acrylic lid allow the CEXC conductivity and temperature probes to be fitted to facilitate monitoring of the reactions in progress such as the important saponification reaction. Isothermal and adiabatic operation reactions may be demonstrated. (Note, the isothermal reaction requires the Armfield CW17 accessory if experiments at low temperature are to be studied or if the ambient temperature is high).

For adiabatic operation, the use of dyes enables the chemical reaction rates to be monitored visually by the change in colour at different degrees of conversion.

  • Isothermal Operation -To Determine the reaction rate constant in a stirred batch reactor.
  • Adiabatic Operation – To determine the rate equation for the hydrolysis of acetic anhydride to acetic acid in an adiabatic reactor.
  • Investigation of the effect of reactant concentration on the reaction rate
  • Investigation of the effect of temperature on conversion
  • Visual monitoring of the chemical reactions
  • Study of the temperature variation of an exothermic reaction on an adiabatic operation

Note: CEB-MkIII is designed for use with the CEXC service unit. CEB-MkIII can be used with the CEX service unit, but an additional 5TS5 temperature sensor will be required for complete functionality.

  • A small-scale batch reactor for use with the chemical reactors service unit designed to demonstrate both adiabatic and isothermal operation CW-17 accessory is recommended for isothermal operation).
  • 1l working volume
  • The vessel includes a jacket through which hot water from the CEXC or chilled water from the CW-17 is passed. A variable-speed agitator aids heat transfer through the vessel
  • The vessel is made of glass to give full visibility of the contents and enables the use of colour tracers to illustrate the reaction process
  • Fitting points for temperature and conductivity sensors (supplied with the CEXC)

Requires CEXC Base unit to operate
