Scaling up continuous flow chemistry
Key considerations, problems and solutions scaling up a continuous process from lab to production.
Let’s meet at ChemUK 2023, stand H76. Free to visit. 10-11 May 2023.
IEEA grant for sustainable chemical production
Stoli Chem awarded a grant to scale up continuous flow manufacturing

Visit us at stand F62 in Achema 2022, 22-26 August, Frankfurt
Flow Chemistry Japan
We are presenting in Tokyo, 6-7 Oct
Collaboration with iDMT
Slurry hydrolysis in flow project started with iDMT labs
Plug flow (tubular) reactor
Tubular reactors (incorrectly, “plug flow”) – the simplest continuous reactors. See Daniel Lambden’s overview of the tubular reactors.
SABRe is available in Hastelloy
Stainless steel 316L is good in corrosive environments but halogens corrode it quickly. Nickel-based Hastelloy C 276 is much more stable.
Consistent oil-in-water emulsions in continuous flow
Using a continuous multi-CSTR system allowed us to make droplets 2.5 times more uniform compared to a batch reactor
How to calculate heat transfer in continuous flow applications
Continuous flow (such as micro-reactors) are superior for exothermic reactions. How do you compute the thermal performance of a reactor?
