The term “reactor” is used in the chemical industry to refer to special apparatus (e.g. a stirred tank reactor) in which educts are reacted to obtain a desired product.
The reactors for this kind of application are designed to meet very high process and safety standards.
Powders and suspensions such as pastes, doughs etc. are dried in a mixer-dryer-reactor. The drying process that takes place inside the reactor is often required to be rapid yet simultaneously gentle on the product.
Flender gear units for reactors therefore have a very high efficiency and produce only minimal vibration and noise. It should also be possible to monitor the complete gear unit.
