Butyl-Lithium Chemistry in the Flowid SpinPro Reactors

Flowid has performed experiments to improve the efficiency and safety of highly hazardous lithium-halogen exchange reactions. These experiments show the advantages of using the SpinPro technology versus conventional batch technology for these kinds of reactions. Key results are the ease of scaling up to commercial production and flexibility to perform different chemical reactions in the [...]

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, [...]

Making the impossible possible: Butyl Lithium chemistry

The companies ChemConnection B.V., Ajinomoto Omnichem N.V. and Flowid B.V., in cooperation with ISPT, started a combined project, partially funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), to investigate the potential of performing organic synthesis with butyl lithium as reagent in a SpinPro Reactor. Motivation of the project was to proof the outstanding performance of the [...]

The SpinPro R300; not your everyday Spinning Disc Reactor

The SpinPro reactor is based on patented rotor-stator spinning disc technology. Traditionally, two types of spinning disc reactors are known in chemical industry. The first, the thin film spinning disc reactor consists of a rotating disk in a large collection tank. Liquid is fed on top of the disc near the axis of rotation and flows [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
