Our expertise in reaction engineering, fluid dynamics, applied chemistry and chemical engineering enable us to design, develop and build innovative modular flow chemistry platforms to serve challenging high-temperature and cryogenic processes.
We utilize two types of flow chemistry reactors, continuously stirred tank reactors (CSTR) and plug flow reactors (PFR). PFRs are employed to execute gas/liquid and liquid/liquid reactions, while CSTR are used for solid/liquid reactions as well as separation/extraction operations.
The sequence above shows a continuous plug flow reactor in operation for a client project at STA. Running the reaction in flow mode eliminated the risk of product degradation by reducing the residence time in the PFR.
A straightforward "numbering-up" scale-up method was developed to support 100g scale (left) and 1 kg scale (middle and right) with identical equipment. The kilo-lab setup has the capacity to support multiple hundred kg campaigns, ensuring continuous processing can be used as a practical solution as your needs grow.
