Emulsion Polymerization Reactor
The set-up consists of jacketed type SS reactor fitted with a variable speed agitator & baffles. Hot water from a digitally controlled water bath is circulated in the jacket using a pump. Metered quantity of nitrogen gas from a cylinder passes through a de-oxygenation column & allowed to enter in the reactor. Air has to be evacuated using a vacuum pump to create vacuum up to 30mm of Hg before passing the nitrogen supply. Initiator from reservoir is supplied to the reactor under pressure. Set-up is complete& self-contained with sampling ports.
