Transfer of Laboratory Results to Plant Scale in Development of Reactor for Alkylation of Aniline with Ethanol
Amine Technology Development, BorsodChem Moravian Chemical Works, Ostrava
BorsodChem Moravian Chemical Works Co. manufactures specialty amines using liquid-phase reactions on heterogeneous catalysts in trickle-bed reactors. Laboratory reactors differ from production-scale reactors mainly in hydrodynamic conditions of the reaction mixture flow. The authors demonstrate the possibility of transferring laboratory-scale data to production-scale reactor making use of the existing technology based on the same principle as the newly developed technology.
