Multi purpose reactors

PRT GmbH provides stainless steel jacketed multipurpose batch reactors for olefin polymerization. Our reactor systems are mounted in mobile stainless steel frames. The combination of the reactor, feed supply, injection and temperature control makes such a system a mobile plug-and-play tool. The reactor system is made for catalytic olefin (co-) polymerizations with precise hydrogen- and co-monomer concentration control. Slurry, gas phase, and high-temperature solution polymerizations can be carried out. Of course, these reactor systems can be used for free-radical polymerizations in emulsion, bulk, and suspension too. For catalytic olefin polymerizations, the system comes optionally with controlled purification units developed by PRT.


Volume range 0.5 - 300 L
Pressure range UHV -250 bara
Temperature range 10-220 ?C


The reactor itself can be optionally equiped with:
  • Bottem valve for sampling
    (when internal heater is not present)
  • Interchangable stirrers
  • Elevator system for easy handling
  • Stirrer speed control
  • Multistage safety system

About Polymer Reactor Technology

Based on more than 120 man-years of research experience, PRT designs and builds affordable setups, including service, training and warranty. The setup size can range from single-particle reactors to industrial pilot plant size. Based on professor Weickert's patents, PRT is developing components of new gas phase polymerization technologies and has a number of sophisticated labscale setups that can be used by our clients for commercial and academic research projects. We lease lab and pilot infrastructure.
