In this thesis, the falling film reactor, developed by the University of Groningen, is characterized with respect to its operating window. The University of Groningen initially developed the falling film reactor to perform more tests on the production of 1,4-butane diisocyanate (BDI) using short path distillation. The technology applied in this reactor is comparable to falling film evaporators and short path evaporators. However, compared to these evaporators, the design is quite different. First of all, the liquid distribution is completely different. Moreover, the cooling is performed internally while for falling film evaporators it is done externally. In addition, short path evaporators are generally operated at higher vacuums than required for the BDI production. Due to its unique design, it was unknown if the workings are similar to the current available designs and thus which theories are applicable. This study has provided some initial understanding of the falling film reactor.
