Cuve de réaction en continu à agitation


Explanation:
Tank = réservoir, cuve
Reactor = réacteur

tank reactor= cuve de réacteur ou cuve de réaction.

to stir = agiter. En chimie, on agite fréquement le mélange pour que la réaction soit homogène, ou pour éviter les diférences de températures ou les précipitations de produits.

continuous = continu, continuel, en continu.

à mon avis continuous qualifie le réacteur et non pas l'agitation. Ce qui importe dans un procédé de fabrication c'est de savoir s'il est continu ou discontinu. Que l'agitation soit continue ou non est secondaire, par ailleurs j'aurais (mais je ne suis pas l'auteur ni américain/anglais) plutôt écrit "continuously stirred" si j'avais voulu indiquer une agitation continue.

réacteur à cuve agitée en continu


Explanation:
IFused as in nuclear energy : a stirred tank is a "cuve agitée"
"continuous" is "en continu"
and it is the speciality of the given reactor ("réacteur") to have a permanently stirred tank.
I am no expert on chemistry, but this would definitely be the translation in the case of nuclear energy, confirmed by the OECD glossary on energy.
(I work frequently on energy issues)
