Application

In a Urea reactor, ammonium carbonate is decomposed into urea and water. Nearly pure urea is discharged from the reactor via the long pipe, which projects into the upper part of the vessel from the bottom. During the reaction process, the level in the reactor must be kept as constant as possible to maximise the purity and productivity of the process.
