Reactors for special applications and requirements

We have the capacity and expertise to customize reactors for any special requirement 

There are several reasons why you might need a custom-made reactor for your business. The production of some chemicals calls for special materials and conditions in the reactor. You might need a pilot reactor which we design and deliver exclusively to your specifications. For health and safety reasons, you might require specially secured reactors with a containment design. Or you might need a sector design as the entire reactor is simply too heavy or large to be transported to the intended site in one piece. Whatever you need by way of reactors, we have the solution


Developing individual reactors for and with you

As a pioneer in reactor technology, MAN Energy Solutions is constantly working to push the boundaries of what is possible. We work closely with our customers in the chemical and petrochemical industries as well as in research, designing special reactors with various design features.

We use high-grade materials such as low- and high-alloy steel combined with special cladding to manufacture reactors which can handle all sorts of chemicals. 

Should you be working with highly flammable or hazardous substances, our containment reactor design eliminates the hazard of escaping hot and contaminated gases and the risk of fire.  

Many customers like to order extremely large reactors for the sake of production efficiency. Transporting them in one piece is often impossible (no weight-appropriate cranes available, not enough physical space, etc.). We offer a special sector design, enabling the convenient transportation of smaller components. Our technicians will assemble the reactor on-site.
