During the Dutch congres 'Duurzaam Geproduceerd' about sustainable production, the Spinning Disc was award the Proces Enlightenment award 2013. The results were announced after deliberation by the jury, headed by Marga Angle , director of ‘De Groene Zaak’, an online election with nearly 15 thousand votes were cast , and a public vote during the [...]
The FlowFlex is an automated modular continuous process development platform. The set-up is highly flexible in performing different kinds of flow chemistry based on different continuous technologies. All modules have the same dimensions and can be interconnected easily due to its uniform power, data and process interconnections.
At the start of 2013, the start-up SPINID enters the market with their innovative reactor technology. SPINID, a spin-off company of the Eindhoven University of Technology, designs and builds chemical reactors based on ‘spinning disc technology’. With this technology chemical reactions can be performed safe and flexible, while increasing the efficiency in terms of both [...]
The Eindhoven high-tech companies Flowid B.V. and EmulTech B.V. cooperated in the realization of a unique laboratorial platform for EmulTech’s ET4ME technology. This patented microfluidic technology is used for the development of drug delivery formulations with high degree of uniformity, solubility, tailored release, benign processes and reproducibility. Flowid succeeded in the design and realization of [...]
With this advance, researchers and manufacturers have the opportunity to now incorporate Quantum Materials Tetrapod Quantum Dots into new state-of-the-art electronics products that require industrial scale amounts of material. This new quantum dot production process using a new microreactor and software controlled continuous flow process has been successfully developed and operated for delivery of mass produced [...]
Summary This application Note describes the benefits of micro flow chemistry for biphasic liquid-liquid reactions with a Phase Transfer Catalyzed (PTC) type of reaction. For a model reaction Flowid realized a 3 times higher production rate per day with a higher selectivity (99%) as compared to batch reactions. Due to the continuous nature of the [...]
