Rotating disk reactors

Another type of rotating reactor (Fig. 20.5) is the CR5 developed at the Sandia National Laboratories (Diver et al., 2008). The reactor is a receiver/ reactor/recuperator that consists of counter rotating rings or disks. Robo – cast redox material in the form of fin segments is adjusted on the rotating disks. With the aid of the rotating disks, the redox material is alternately exposed to solar radiation for the regeneration step and water vapor for the water-splitting step.
