Flow Chemistry is an alternate approach to conventional manufacturing processes that is increasingly gaining popularity in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. It involves replacing large-scale batch reactors with significantly smaller continuous flow reactors. Flow reactors are designed to enable manufacturers to perform chemical reactions in flow, under a diverse range of operating conditions with excellent process control.
Unlike batch reactors, maximum heat and mass transfer characteristics can be achieved seamlessly for flow reactors at all scales of production – lab, pilot and industrial. Flow reactors are custom designed and manufactured to suit the requirements of one reaction or a group of reactions. However, the practical limitations of conventional manufacturing methods restrict the extent of achievable design features.
With our streamlined design and manufacturing capabilities, reactors of volumes ranging from 2ml to 2000ml can be manufactured and delivered in a matter of days. Through additive manufacturing, we can incomparably expand the range of customizations with ease to add more value to your process.
Intech’s DfAM expertise allows us to develop customized Metal 3D Printed Flow Reactors depending on the volume, heat transfer and mass transfer rates required for any particular unit process.
