Paper Title:
Design for Manufacture of a Miniature Batch Reactor
  Abstract

The results of a study into the design for manufacture of a chemical batch reactor for the synthesis of alkyd resin destined for surface-coating production is presented. The procedures for determining the key geometrical parameters of the reactor are explained. This paper presents the application of fertile innovation to the design and development of chemical batch reactor that uses boiler steam in conjunction with heat from efficient wood stove to achieve constant supply of heat, sustained at about 2500C. The design concept is governed by an analytical model developed and which specifies the optimal reactor geometries that would afford efficient heat and mass transfer. Residence time for our reactor is five (5) hours as against eight (8) hours associated with laboratory scale reactors. The performance of the chemical batch reactor during a preliminary test-run was evaluated in terms of the well over 3000C processing temperature achieved and from the result rises hope eternal.
