An experiment for teaching mixing intensification in reaction engineering is described. For this, a simple tubular reactor was constructed; helical static mixer elements were fabricated from stainless steel strips and inserted into the reactor. With and without the internals, the equipment operates as a static mixer reactor or a laminar flow reactor, respectively. The reaction experiment allows an assessment of changes in the reactant conversion and the pressure drop due to the static mixing.
