Mixing of substances and chemical reactions are closely interconnected. The way in which different reagents are mixed together can have a significant influence on product quality, product yield, or even on the resulting product itself.
Stirred reactors are used in the chemical industry for a range of applications. They can be used for reaction, extraction, distillation, crystallization, and other processes. Depending on the reactor process and operating mode (continuous, semi-batch, or batch operation), the agitators used can be subjected to varied demands.
In the petrochemical industry, emulsification, absorption, desalination, alkylation, or neutralization processes are commonly found; lubricating oils must be homogenized or sludge oils suspended.
For this wide variety of mixing tasks, Geppert offers tailor-made agitators to satisfy operational and customer requirements.
