Urea synthesis with pool reactor

Urea synthesis with pool reactor (Stamicarbon Urea 2000plusTM technology)

Starting from the [pool condenser process], a further step towards the full integration of equipment within the urea synthesis section is the horizontal pool reactor, first introduced by Stamicarbon in 1996. By combining the functions of the urea reactor and the carbamate condenser in one vessel, the number of high-pressure items in the synthesis unit has been reduced from four to two (stripper and pool reactor) and a considerable amount of interconnecting high-pressure piping has been dispensed with.

The condensing section of the reactor contains the U-tube bundle, already used in the pool condenser technology, while the rest of the pool reactor forms the reaction zone for the dehydration of the carbamate.
