Application of Continuous Flow Reactor

Mixing of miscible liquids or immiscible liquids or gases creating dispersion of immiscible fluids or gases in liquids and carrying out very fast, exothermic, homogeneous, heterogeneous & catalytic hydrogenation reactions. Some of the tested applications include diazotization, nitrations, oxidation with different oxidizing agents, sulfoxidation, hydrogenation, sulfonation, etc. The reactor has been used in many industries for a wide range of reactions under various conditions from cryogenic to High temperature & High Pressure Reactions.

Design

It consists of a sequence of 3D converging units with or without obstructions. This is scalable and gives high throughput.

Application Tubular Flow Reactor

Mixing of miscible liquids or immiscible liquids or gases creating dispersion of immiscible fluids or gases in liquids and carrying out very fast, exothermic & homogeneous reactions. The mass transfer will take place entirely depending upon the flow regime. This reactor has been fabricated and designed for various flow capacities for the industry. Standard as well as tailor made for each chemistry. AMaR-4P offers excellent mixing with no compromise on heat transfer rates. It can be used as a static mixer for homogeneous reaction for fluids of lower viscosity. It can also be used as heat exchanger.

Design

It consist of a sequence of coils made from pinched tube (AMaR-4P) or normal tubes (AMaR-4) of various sizes. This is a scalable and high throughput flowreactor. The heat transfer area is high and the numbering up approach has been used for conducting the reactions. The reactor gives better mixing with several sampling ports measurement locations and flexibility to operate in parts.
