Precise and Accurate Emulsification in the SpinPro

The SpinPro is unique in the field of emulsification as it allows for a high degree of freedom on the amount of shear that is applied to the emulsifying fluids, independent of the total throughput through the system. This results in constant droplet size distribution at the outlet with a high degree of control. Recently, [...]

SpinPro R300 eliminates necessity of Hydrogen Sulphide in Multiphase reaction

The SpinPro reactor has recently been used on-site. Goal of this project was to experimentally determine the performance of the SpinPro reactor for a multiphase reaction between a gas and two liquid phases, one aqueous and one oil. The rate-limiting step in this process was believed to lie in the mass transfer steps; an ideal [...]

Whitepaper: Successful Scale Up of Butyl-Lithium using the SpinPro Reactor

In a pursuit of improving safety and process efficiency, Biogen a top Biotech company collaborated with Proteaf Technologies and Flowid to scale up a highly hazardous lithium-halogen exchange followed by quench reaction sequence at ChemConnection, Oss, NL. The sequence demonstrated successful scale up of laboratory spinning disk technology to the SpinPro-- a production scale spinning [...]

AkzoNobel making a big effort on breakthrough technology

Published in 'Duurzaam Geproduceerd', courtesy of Wim Raaijen AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals wants to apply more novel process technology. The company developed a methodology to hasten it. Innovation Director Marco Waas in the new edition of Dutch magazine : “Duurzaam Geproduceerd”: "We are currently investigating the possibility of making chlorine with the Spinning Disc on a small [...]

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. [...]

Case study – Flexibility

Problem Description One of our customers, a large manufacturer of flow reactors in the (pharma) industry, was looking for a suitable testing site to further develop a highly exothermic process using dangerous chemicals. They had had success in small scale research and wanted to optimize and scale up the process. However, after having requested access [...]

Phase Transfer Catalyzed Reaction in Micro Flow Chemistry

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 [...]
