Figure shows Continuous stirred tank reactors, (a) With agitator and internal heat transfer surface, (b) With pump around mixing and external heat transfer surface. This experiment was conducted to study the saponification reaction between sodium hydroxide and ethyl acetate in a continuous-stirred tank reactor (CSTR).
