May 2016 – Coflore ACR Eliminates Need for Multiple Heat Transfer Zones

The Coflore ACR is a flow reactor that decouples mixing and plug flow from residence time. Controlling the temperature of an nth order reaction in flow can be achieved with multiple heat transfer zones operating at different temperatures. The disadvantage of this set up is that it requires multiple heater-chillers which adds cost and complexity. A simpler solution is to use a single heat transfer zone with a tuned ‘approach temperature’

TECHNICAL NOTE: Counter Current Liquid-Liquid Extraction

TECHNICAL NOTE: CC-LLE Counter Current Liquid-liquid Extraction

The Coflore® mixing technology has been shown to give high mixing intensity independent of fluid velocity for both homogeneous and multi-phase systems. Strong mixing is beneficial to mass transfer limited reactions but also to work up steps such as extraction.
