The figure show the schematic construction of a tubular reactor type RB 8.
Tubular reactors allow the intensive flow sonication of high volume flows in process engineering and are also used for wire cleaning is inserted.
In this design, the powerful oscillation systems are fixed to the outside of the reactor tube, thus eliminating the need for internals inside the reactor tube. Tubular reactors are therefore particularly insensitive to blockages when sonicating substrates containing solids.
Depending on the desired residence time of the medium to be sonicated in the cavitation field, different reactor sizes are available.
