SpinPro Reactor

The SpinPro Reactor

The SpinPro Reactor is a continuous reactor that allows chemical reactions to take place in seconds in a highly controlled and safe manner. Performing reactions under process intensified conditions result in high energy- and resource efficiency, improved product quality and flexibility in production and development.

The SpinPro Reactor is not to be confused with a ‘thin film spinning disc reactor‘. Read about the differences in this blog post.

SpinPro Reactor: Key Features

The SpinPro technology is well suited for multiphase chemistry. Liquid/gas, liquid/liquid or combinations. Furthermore, it can handle precipitation reactions. SpinPro technology is also excellent for controlled emulsification.
