Study of the thermal behavior of a reactor

Thermal control of a reactor

This unit shows a common issue in process industry: a jacketed vessel connected to a thermoregulation group. The aim is to run the thermal process properly, to compare the running modes and understand the consequences on the heated solutions. The user sets the different regulation loops to achieve the optimal thermoregulation process. Various control loops (single or cascade) may be studied on this test rig. The sensor and actuator signals are available on safety sockets and can be wired to the controller inputs and outputs as needed to form the chosen control loop.

Study of the parameters affecting the heating of a tank:

  • Operating in batch or continuous with overflow
  • Influence of stirring and the forced cooling
  • Simulation of an exothermic and endothermic middle

Thermal study:

  • Thermal balance for reaction medium
  • Thermal balance for thermal fluids
  • Heat exchange efficiency

Study of the regulation:

  • Study of a single loop or cascade loop
  • Influence of response time
