Tantalum reactors

Tantalum reactor Mersen

Reactors are designed to carry out chemical reactions. Reactors can be exposed to extremely corrosion. The corrosion resistance, durability, and heat transfer properties of tantalum makes it an ideal material for challenging applications.

Tantalum pressure vessels should be considered for applications whenever corrosion resistance is a major consideration and when longevity and reliability are required.

Tantalum’s surface oxide layer resists corrosion thereby minimizing downtime and stoppages in equipment and parts.

Tantalum

Tantalum is the most corrosion resistant metal in common use today. It is inert to practically all organic and inorganic compounds. This reactive metal is inert to Sulfuric and Hydrochloric acid below 150°C. It has good thermal conductivity, is erosion resistant, and forms easily.

Tantalum’s high workability and weldability make it a perfect material of construction for a wide range of equipment such as pressure vessels, columns or reactors.

Tantalum pressure vessel design

Tantalum reactors should be considered for any applications whenever corrosion resistance is a major consideration and when longevity and reliability are required.

Our 3200 m2 workshop allows the production of very large pieces of tantalum equipment (up to 4.4 meter in width and up to 4.2 meter in height, with a maximum weight of 20 tons).

Mersen offers both loose-lined and explosion-cladded tantalum pressure vessels.

Tantalum agitators

Chemical mixing combines different ingredients to create one homogenous chemical.

Depending on the corrosion of the chemical inside the reactors, the mixers can be made out of tantalum.
