Reschetilowski's Manual of Chemical Reactors

Pulsation Reactor Included in a Standard Work for the First Time

The newly published Manual of Chemical Reactors paints a comprehensive picture of reaction engineering in the chemical industry – unique in its scope and depth for our language area. The consideration of the variety of reactors in use also includes economic and ecological implications, so that it can rightly be described as a new standard work.

It is all the more important for IBU-tec that the pulsation reactors developed by the company has now been included in such a reference work for the first time.

IBU-tec's Contribution

Our decades in research and development, as a service provider or contract manufacturer in thermal process technology have produced a wealth of experience working with frequently changing processes and ever-new materials. IBU-tec enjoys international reputation for rotary kiln expertise and the pulsation reactor is an IBU-tec exclusive technology platform. We were pleased to support Mr. Reschetilowski in the chapters on both reactors!

Rotary kilns have long been established in the industry and are used where bulk materials have to be treated thermally and economically with good mixing and homogeneous quality. Apart from the target reaction however, there may be numerous side reactions and influences that must be incorporated into the design of the process.

The pulsation reactor is a plant for the production of very finely separated and homogeneous powders. The operating principle is based on a pulsating flame in whose hot gas flow the feed material is subjected to a thermal shock calcination.

Wladimir Reschetilowski

Professor Wladimir Reschetilowski (Full title: Prof. Prof. h.c. Dr. rer. nat. habil.) held the Chair of Technical Chemistry at the Technical University of Dresden for many years. In defining the teaching profile of the subject, he held a leading role and wrote several non-fiction books in related topics.

In addition to technical chemistry, Reschetilowski's work also focuses on catalysis and the history of chemistry in general. His research interests include zeolite catalysis and the use of renewable chemical raw materials.

Wladimir Reschetilowski was born in 1950 in Ukraine, where he studied chemistry at Shevchenko University. He also received further training at the Technical University of Leuna-Merseburg. He completed his doctorate (1979) and habilitation (1987) with works on zeolite catalysts. This was followed by a chair in Leipzig, after which he took over the leadership of the technical chemistry group at the Karl Winnacker Institute of DECHEMA in Frankfurt am Main in 1991. In 1996 he became professor of technical chemistry in Dresden. Photo credit: Romeo Lima, photographer in Weimar.
