TORBED® REACTOR SYSTEMS
Torftech Ltd. has developed a novel range of high rate gas-solid reactors. Known as the TORBED® reactor, the concept of the reactor appears similar to a lean-phase toroidal fluidized bed offering very high heat and mass transfer between solids and gases.
The TORBED technology has a wide range of applications where processing of solids such as metals, minerals, foods, chemicals, or wastes require thermal treatment or reaction with a gas stream. TORBED systems may be used for drying, calcining, reacting, fuming, pyrolysis or combustion-type processes that can be carried out in a compact unit with minimal inventory and high efficiency. The technology has also found application in the gas scrubbing industry for acid gases due to its low pressure drop and high overall efficiency.
