Abstract

In this paper the potentials of intensified spinning disc reactors for handling fast exothermic reactions and reactions which are heat and mass transfer limited have been discussed. Research by the Process Intensification and Innovation Centre on spinning disc reactor technology is ongoing and the results to date have been very encouraging.
