Mixing and Mass Transfer
Mixing in a Chemical Reactor and the Effect on Reaction Kinetics and Scale-up

Mixing is the reduction or elimination of inhomogeneity of phases that are either miscible or immiscible. Process scale-up and optimization require that the impact of mixing on the reaction rate be quantified. Automated, controlled experiments can be run in parallel in a laboratory reactor system to establish a mass transfer correlation, and provide a means to quickly adjust the gas/ liquid interface area and reactor volume. This achieves the desired conditions required for the scale-up or scale-down of a process.

Chemical Synthesis
Producing Quality, Economically-Viable Molecules

Chemical synthesis occurs when two or more molecules are combined to form a product molecule that possesses specific properties. There are numerous examples of chemical synthesis that results in important products for the pharmaceutical, polymer, fine and bulk chemical industries. To achieve optimized yield, quality, safety and cost metrics, chemical synthesis requires a thorough understanding of the kinetics and thermodynamics of the underlying chemistry, as well as carefully controlled and monitored reaction conditions.

Crystallization and Precipitation
Optimize Crystal Size, Yield and Purity With Crystallization Equipment

By understanding crystallization processes and choosing the right process parameters, it is possible to repeatably produce crystals of the correct size, shape and purity while minimizing issues downstream.

Chemical Reaction Kinetics Studies
Fundamental Understanding of Reactions Rates and Factors Affecting Them

Chemical reaction kinetics, also known as reaction kinetics, reflect rates of chemical reactions and provide a better understanding of their dependencies on reaction variables. Reaction kinetic studies provide enhanced insight into reaction mechanisms. Learn how to obtain data rich information for more complete reaction kinetic information.

Chemical Process Safety
Avoid Losing Control over a Chemical Process

Chemical process safety focuses on preventing incidents and accidents during manufacturing of chemicals and pharmaceuticals on a large scale. It refers to unintentional release of potentially dangerous materials and energy to the environment during a chemical reaction or because of a runaway reaction.
