Condensation Polymerisation Set-Up Apparatus

Condensation Polymerisation Set-Up Apparatus

Condensation Polymerization kettle is used to carry out a condensation polymerization reaction under batch conditions. The polymerization reaction can be acid-catalyzed or self-catalyzed. The set-up can be used to measure the extent of reaction & also the reaction rate constant. The set-up consists of a jacketed type SS reactor fitted with variable speed agitator & baffles.


Description

Condensation Polymerization kettle is used to carry out a condensation polymerization reaction under batch conditions. The polymerization reaction can be acid-catalyzed or self-catalyzed. The set-up can be used to measure the extent of reaction & also the reaction rate constant. The set-up consists of a jacketed type SS reactor fitted with variable speed agitator & baffles. The reactor is fitted with Nichrome wire heaters and the temperature is controlled by the digital temperature controller. Metered quantity of nitrogen gas from a cylinder, allowed entering in the reactor. Set-up is complete & self-contained with sampling ports. The top cover can be removed for cleaning purposes. Feed is fed from the top through a funnel provided with S.S. Ball Valve. An outlet is given to the Condenser fitted with a Perkin’s triangle for collecting the condensate. Vapors are allowed to enter the shell of a condenser and cooling water is allowed to pass through the tube and condensate is collected.
