In situ filling and emptying of rotating bed reactors

Video showing how a SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR) was charged with solid particles, followed by draining and replacing the reaction liquid without escape of solids. Lastly, the solid phase was removed without opening the RBR. This procedure illustrates a concept for automatic handling of solid phases in production scale equipment without opening the reaction vessel.

Keywords: Easy handling, Seamless scaleup, Technology


Conditions: A SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR) S2 within a SpinChem® flower-baffled reaction vessel V2 filled with 150 mL water and 15 mL ion exchange beads (IRN 99 H+, about 500 µm particle size). This 1 min video was edited down from a 2 min real-time process.
