Since we are connected to a supply-pipeline for hydrogen, hydrogenation belongs to the core competences of Miltitz Aromatics, already for years. Especially for voluminous products, we use a 0,8m³ - Loop- reactor that may be run continuously, semi-continuously as well as a batch process. Conceived in a special way, it has a very efficient operation for pressure requirements until 20 bar and is steam-heated.
For hydrogenation requirements demanding higher pressure and covering a range until 70 bar and 280°C we have an oil heated loop reactor of 1m³ at may be run continuously, semi-continuously as well as a batch process too. It is supplied by trailer and has an additional supply of carbon monoxide. In addition, we run as well hydrogenations with alternative hydrogen sources.
The Research and Development department is equipped with two 1-l and one 600-ml-Lab reactor limited to 100 bar and a 7-l-pilot-loop plant to screen optimisation ideas and new proceedings close to real conditions.
