Reactors with mixing performance offer simpler scale-up
Asynt in conjunction with research group IPOS has developed a new generation of chemical reactor.
By better understanding and improving the flow and thermal dynamics of the Asynt ReactoMate system, the co-operation is able to now produce reactors that offer better mixing performance.
The benefits of this development for chemists will be simpler process development and scale-up, faster reactions, better reproducibility and improved selectivity.
Martyn Fordham, Managing Director of Asynt said: “At the start of our cooperation - Asynt ReactoMate reaction systems as with all of our competitors did not offer optimised mixing.
“Today however, we can offer customers the option to use ReactoMate to scale chemistries with well designed mixing by Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS). This consideration has proven especially important when reaction chemistries are exothermic for example.”
Dr Nicholas Powles, a Senior Research Fellow at IPOS commented “The complexities associated with optimising and scaling-up laboratory reactions are of critical importance in industrial process development.”
IPOS is a research group based within the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Huddersfield.
