Gas Phase Polymerization Plant

This gas phase polymerization plant uses a 1.8 liter reactor designed to operate at 175 °C and up to 40 bar operating pressure. This makes the system ideal for polymerization directly from the gas phase. An efficient stirring system ensures that the reaction phase is always optimally mixed. This system is equipped with a dynamic heating and cooling system that enables precise temperature control. The gas phase polymerization plant also has an integrated gas chromatograph for real-time analysis. The operation is fully automated and follows recipe-based protocols to ensure efficiency and consistency.


  • 1.8 l reactor for up to 175 °C and 50 bar.
  • Dynamic heating & cooling system.
  • Integrated gas chromatograph.
  • Fully automated recipe based operation.
