Continuous Tubular Reactor (CTR)

Continuous Tubular Reactor
The continuous tubular reactor (CTR) is a fixed-catalyst-bed reactor suitable for testing thermocatalytic reactions at liquid flow rates of 0.3–8 L/hr. It can operate at pressures up to 5000 psi.

Operating Conditions

  • Liquid flow rate: 0.3–8 L/hr
  • System pressure: 5000 psi
  • System nominal temperature: 900°F (480°C)
  • Liquid hourly space velocity: 2 hr-1
