Coflore® ACR Agitated Cell Reactor

Coflore® ACR - Agitated Cell Reactor

Key Features

  • Synthesis / Crystallization
  • Bioreaction / Polymerization
  • Solids / Slurries (upto 50%)
  • Immiscible fluids

The Coflore Agitated Cell Reactor (ACR) is a bench top flow reactor for developing scalable flow solutions at low throughput. Agitator Platform The ACR consists of two parts, the agitator platform and a demountable reactor block. The agitator platform consists of a reactor chamber with a closable lid.

The platform also houses the instruments and controls for generating mixing. Connections for heat transfer fluids are mounted on the side of the platform and access ports for the process pipes are located on the front plate. The control panel provides mixer controls, temperature monitoring and data logging.

It is available in three options: analogue, digital, or remote (for use in hazardous areas). A mounting boss for the reactor blocks is located within the reaction chamber. This generates rapid lateral movement for mixing.

Reactor materials: Hastelloy, Tantallum, SS-316L, PTFE.


Coflore® ATR - Agitated Tube Reactor

Coflore® Agitated Tube Reactor

Key Features

  • Synthesis / Crystallization
  • Bioreaction / Polymerization
  • Solids / Slurries (upto 50%)
  • Immiscible fluids

The Coflore ATR is an industrial flow reactor for homogenous and multi-phase fluids. Employing the same mixing principle as the lab scale Coflore ACR, it uses lateral movement to generate mixing and stage separation to prevent back mixing.

The ATR employs 10 independently temperature controlled reactor tubes mounted on an agitating assembly. Each tube has a nominal capacity of 1 litre giving an overall capacity from 1 to 10 litres. The reactor comes in its own agitator housing assembly.

Reactor materials: Hastelloy, SS-316L.


SpinPro Reactor

SpinPro Reactor

The Spinning Disc Reactor allows chemical reactions to take place under extreme pressure and temperatures in a highly controlled conditions. Enabling higher energy and resource efficiency, improving product quality, safety and adding unprecedented levels of process. Resulting in a 20 to 50% cost reduction for clients. Unique selling points (USP’s) are high gravity force, high shear mixing of multiphase systems, integrated heat exchanger and a small reaction volume while maintaining a production capacity per reactor from well over 10 tons per day.

To increase the production volume discs or stages as they are called are stacked to increase the reactor volume. Up to ten stages can be put in series; creating a multiple spinning disc reactor or MSDR. Ten MSDR’s in a parallel configuration provide enough production capacity to replace the largest scale batch reactors.


SpinPro Extractor

SpinPro Extractor

The Multiple Spinning Disc Extractor (MSDE) allows multistage counter-current extraction in one low volume device. Extraction is a common work-up step for the chemical industry in which a substance is extracted from one liquid phase into another liquid phase. Conventionally, multiple mixing and separation steps are required for this. On industrial scale this is previously done in large extraction columns. To enhance this, so called centrifugal devices are developed in which mixing and separation is performed, intensifying the process and limiting the hold up of an extracting device.

The MSDE technology on which Spinid holds the IP, is also a centrifugal device but with the advantage that within one device, multiple mixing and separation steps can be performed. The integration of multiple steps reduces the processing time which improves the product quality. It further reduces complexity of the system and the investment costs because one MSDE device replaces multiple in series operated traditional centrifugal devices. The MSDE is unique because the level of mixing and separation can be controlled individually and highly accurate improving yield and product quality.
