AM Technology is a global leader in mechanically stirred continuous reactors.
Flow processing is greener and more sustainable than traditional batch production and can bring savings in running and capital costs by increasing yields, reducing heat loads and cutting equipment footprints to name a few.
An effective flow reactor requires orderly flow, good mixing and (where applicable) good heat transfer. The Coflore technology exploits a novel approach to mechanical stirring in tubes and does not rely on drive shafts, baffles or mechanical seals.
Movement of the mechanical agitator is generated by reciprocal movement of the reactor body…shaken not stirred!
AM Technology build and sell flow systems to customer requirements and can also provide contract research services to support move to flow studies.
Runcorn based AM Technology has secured funding from the Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI), and private investors after developing a new chemical reactor which will have a significant impact on major UK supply chains.
In a consortium bid with control and automation experts, Autico, AM Technology secured a grant of £2.2m from the AMSCI fund with additional funding from private investors.
Following the study undertaken by AM Technology and Robinson Brothers Ltd, with funding support from the Technology Strategy Board, a three phase Pd catalysed hydrogenation reaction was successfully transferred from batch to continuous operation. Higher purity and a drastic reduction in reactor size were achieved making the commercial benefits clear. Download the technical note from our Application page now!
