We are excited to be testing our SABRe system at Vapourtec’s lab yesterday!
Manuel will be exploring the scale up of two of Vapourtec’s previous application notes, demonstrating the slurry handling for catalysis and high mass transfer in the SABRe system.
Vapourtec’s peristaltic pumps and systems are a perfect match to the SABRe system to offer a clear path to scale continuous reactions from tubular reactors to a stacked series of CSTRs!
Tubular reactors (incorrectly, “plug flow”) – the simplest continuous reactors. See Daniel Lambden’s overview of the tubular reactors.
Stainless steel 316L is good in corrosive environments but halogens corrode it quickly. Nickel-based Hastelloy C 276 is much more stable.
Continuous flow (such as micro-reactors) are superior for exothermic reactions. How do you compute the thermal performance of a reactor?
How the SABRE system provides large gas-liquid area to maximise the reaction throughput and selectivity.
We showed superior performance of SABRe in the enzymatic (liquid-liquid) esterification.
It was great to see so many people and interest in using SABRe.
How residence time is vital for throughput and product quality.
The gas-liquid mass transfer coefficient is a key parameter in multiphase reactions. We studied it for the SABRe.
The SABRe provides precise residnece time control.
