For many chemical manufacturing processes, the improved heat and mass transfer capabilities of flow reactors can deliver substantial improvements in yield, quality, safety and solvent use. AM Technology are global leaders in design and scale up of flow processes. Our Coflore technology is used for manufacturing chemicals in the pharmaceutical and speciality chemical sectors. It provides a simple and flexible tool for continuous processing from laboratory to industrial scale.
The benefits of Coflore stem from the patented mixing technique which generates dynamic
mixing without the use of rotating shafts, mechanical seals or mixing baffles.
Coflore - Performance
Handles slurries, immiscible liquids, gas-liquid mixtures and high viscosity fluids. High mixing efficiency and good plug flow for reaction times from a few seconds to many hours. Pressure drop is typically less than 1% of a tubular reactor under comparable conditions.
Coflore - Flexibility
Suitable for co-current and counter current processes with reaction times from a few seconds to many hours.
Coflore - Scalability
Plug flow and mixing remain substantially constant with scale-up. This simplifies process development and provides a high level of certainty that scaled up processes will deliver comparable performance.
