Continuous Reactor - Mixing
... Mixing is another important classifying feature for continuous reactors ... In terms of trajectory through the reactor, the ideal flow condition for a continuous reactor is plug flow (since this delivers uniform residence time within the reactor) ... In tube type reactors (with or without static mixing), adequate mixing can be achieved without seriously compromising plug flow ...

... Batch reactors are very versatile and are used for a variety for different unit operations (batch distillation, storage, crystallisation, liquid-liquid extraction etc.) in addition to chemical reactions ... There is a large installed base of batch reactors within industry and their method of use is well established ... Batch reactors are excellent at handling difficult materials like slurries or products with a tendency to foul ...
Continuous Reactor
... Continuous reactors (alternatively referred to as flow reactors) carry material as a flowing stream ... Reactants are continuously fed into the reactor and emerge as continuous stream of product ... Continuous reactors are used for a wide variety of chemical and biological processes within the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries ...
