The results of work are presented on the industrial reactor for the synthesis of carbon nanostructure materials (CNM). The reasonable choice of gas phase carbon precipitation in the process of catalytic hydrocarbon pyrolysis is an optimum method of industrial nanotube production. The results of experimental research are stated, allowing establishing rational technological parameters for CNM synthesis and characteristics of the product, representing onedimensional nano-scale threadlike formations of polycrystalline graphite as multilayered nanotubes. The analysis of possible ways of constructive presentation of the reactor has allowed making a conclusion on the advantageous usage of capacitor devices with motionless catalyst layer. The description of operation and construction principles of the industrial reactor for CNM synthesis with 2000 kg per year productivity is given.
