Rapid heat and mass transfer are a major prerequisite for the efficient flow reactions. Flow chemistry involves an established technique for performing reactions under conditions where temperature besides other process parameters are precisely controlled and safely done. The variables to be controlled involve temperature besides stoichiometry, concentration, residence time and pressure. The rate of reactions can easily be increased by 1000X to 8000X. For making the new chemistry possible it is required that heating and cooling is rapidly and efficiently done as per the requirement.
The heating cooling machines are coupled (flanged) with micro reactor jacket so that the heat transfer fluid continuously provides or removes heat.
Wuxi Guanya Refrigeration Technology Company Ltd. China makes "Lynea" heating cooling machines are found to be highly suitable for giving heating and cooling as per the requirement of flow micro reactions. The machines can offer a temperature range of (-) 100 deg C to 250 deg C, with an accuracy of +/- 1 deg C. The specification of a typical machine which is found suitable for the flow reactions is given below :-
|Sr. No.||Item Description|
|1||Temp. Range: -25 °C to 200 °
|4||Heat transfer Fluid|
Some of the other features of the machines are:-
For the micro reaction application some of our clients include Sunpharma, Corning etc.
