SpinPro Reactor for Butyl Lithium Reaction

Flowid demonstrated that the SpinPro Reactor is well suited for performing hazardous and pyrophoric Lithium Halogen Exchange. An extensive engineering and safety effort resulted in successful experiments. Lithium Halogen Exchange is a type of carbon-carbon bond forming reaction frequently performed in lab scale organic synthesis. Although the reaction is performed at scale, producing pharmaceuticals, pesticides, [...]

Heterogeneous Catalysis in the SpinPro Reactor

Heterogeneous catalysis is of paramount importance in chemical industry, but it often involves incorporating difficult and mass transfer limited unit operations. The SpinPro Reactor has proven itself to drastically increase solid-liquid mass transfer rates, while simultaneously tackling the problems involved in downstream solids handling. The SpinPro consists of three rotor-stator stages in series. Each compartment [...]

Brightlands Chemelot Campus getting plant with revolutionary green chemical technology

Flowid from Eindhoven is constructing a small-scale plant at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen. This so-called “Spin-in” project will cost 1.7 million euros, over 700,000 of which is provided as funding from the South Netherlands Operational Program (OP South – “OP-Zuid” in Dutch). In the plant, the young company will be applying patented spinning-disk technology [...]

SpinPro Reactor suited for Butyl Lithium reaction

Flowid demonstrated that the SpinPro Reactor is well suited for performing hazardous and pyrophoric Lithium Halogen Exchange. An extensive engineering and safety effort resulted in successful experiments performed in Flowid’s own facilities in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Lithium Halogen Exchange is a type of carbon-carbon bond forming reaction frequently performed in lab scale organic synthesis. Although [...]

Flowid wins Herman Wijffels Innovation Award

Flowid has been awarded the Herman Wijffels Innovation Award in the circular economy category. The jury concluded that Flowid's factories of the future enable decentralised production, without big factories, without large investments. They conclude employment and knowledge is retained while maintaining a leading position in process industry.

Launch of EmulTech’s Infinity, engineered and realised by Flowid

Eindhoven University of Technology spin-off EmulTech last week launched INFINITY: a unit that allows pharmaceutical companies to encapsulate medicines with very high precision. The resulting microparticle all have exactly the same size and medicine content, allowing extremely precise control of delivery. This is very important in applications such as asthma respirators. Encapsulating medicines is currently [...]

Development of custom fouling probe for Shell Global Solutions

For Shell Global Solutions, Flowid engineered, developed and realised an instrument for measuring the fouling behaviour of crude oil fractions. Flowid functioned as a flexible and innovate partner for developing such non-existing custom instrument for Shell Global Solutions. In an autoclave, fluid is kept in at high pressure, high temperature and an extreme corrosive atmosphere. [...]
