Loop Reactors?

  1. Feb 9, 2017 #1
    I have a recycle loop system:


    Please could someone give me a place to understand the theory behind it? What would be its purpose? Where would it be used?

    I've googled recycle loop systems but I cant find anything relevant, is it the same as a pressurized water reactor...


    What would it be called generally?

    Just need a place to start or a few ideas.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    are you thinking along the lines of a device that generates more energy than it uses?

    No, it's part of a lab experiment to investigate the "mass flow rate" of the system and also the "Steady State Heat Balance". I'm trying to learn about the theory of how the system works and what the system is used for in real life. I just don't know what the system would be called as "recycle loop" doesnt bring up the relevant info on a google search. Thanks for any ideas.
