High pressure reactor

P.V. Bartels (Inventor)

    Research output: PatentProfessional


    Reactor vessel (1) comprising (a) a cylindrically shaped, hollow core element (2) as the inner wall, which element is open at both ends; and (b) at least one layer of high performance fibers (3,4,5), preferably having a tensile strength of at least 100 MPa, arranged around the core element (2) in an essential circumferential orientation, wherein the fibers are embedded in a rigid polymeric of resinous matrix. The reactor vessel (1) is suitably part of a high pressure reactor (9), which further comprises two plugging means (6,7) arranged in the opposing open ends of the vessel, which plugging means (6,7) are mounted on a common (11,12) frame for balancing the forces exerted on the said plugging means (6,7). The reactor (9) is very suitable for use in high pressure operations.
