SpinPro technology is well suited for multiphase chemistry:
Key Features are:
Excellent mass transfer
Excellent heat transfer
Economic and safe operation due to low reactor volume
Scalability to tonne-scale production
Modular set up enabling custom configurations
The SpinPro Reactor
With SpinPro technology more efficient and safer process conditions are met, investments (CAPEX) can be reduced significantly. Often quality is improved, the yield increased with less byproduct formation and the final product properties improved. Typically CAPEX reductions of 20-70% can be realised depending on the process. Main drivers are the lower costs of safety measurements and work up installations.
In most applications a significant decrease in operational costs (OPEX), due to the higher efficiencies and less workup of the product, even to the extent that processes could be performed undiluted, saving tremendously on workup.
Ease of Operation
Further advantages are easy shut down, cleaning and start-up. A major benefit is the flexibility to make different products in the same installation due to fast turnaround. The SpinPro can be stopped, cleaned and restarted within a few hours.
Easy to scale up and safe. Flexible skid for production operational.
