Innovative multipurpose flow reactor
Our multipurpose reactor converts any batch process into flow
Cleanliness and precise control for faster, cheaper, and safer chemistry
Our reactor combines benefits of both flow and batch
Benefits in brief
Our reactor improves and simplifies a series of stirred tanks providing all the benefits without their complexities. You already know about batch hydrodynamics – these all apply to our reactor.
Many impellers in small chambers maximise heat & mass transfer for excellent reaction control, high yield, simple reaction cascades and expanded chemistries (exothermic, labile, explosive). The reactor is configurable in minutes for various impellers or reactions. You save on materials, overheads, and labour.

We are developing a hydrogenation pilot miniplant due to begin pilot tests in 2021. The miniplant aims to produce 100 kg a dayin continuous flow. A modular turnkey reactor system with integrated process control. Contact us to discuss a continuous flow hydrogenation pilot test.
