Stay in control with excellent mass- and heat transfer properties

Microreactor Technology (MRT) or flow chemistry is an upcoming technology in the fine-chemistry and pharmaceutical industry. The excellent mass- and heat-transfer properties of microreactors give this technology many advantages over batch-wise chemistry. Thanks to the low hold-up per microreactor this technology is inherently safe. Microreactor technology lends itself perfectly for highly exothermic or otherwise dangerous chemical reactions.


Broad range of microreactors available

In our web store, we offer a range of polymer and glass microliter microreactors and a one milliliter scale reactor. But if you have a specific task or goal in mind, our prototyping and product development services will gladly help you develop the right microreactor.

What makes microreactor technology unique?

Mixing and heating fluids in a Microreactor yields a very high degree of control on the chemical reaction. Only small quantities of fluids are necessary because of the limited space in a Microreactor. This means that heating and cooling can be done more precisely. Unwanted side reactions due to gradients in temperature or concentration almost don’t occur. This means that the reaction in a microreactor yields a purer product than batch-wise chemistry. Scaling up with microreactor technology is done by numbering up the microreactors. Thus, the continuous and consistent circumstances keep maintained. In a parallel setting production volumes can reach several tens of tons annually.

Advantages Microreactors over batch-wise chemistry

  • higher yield and selectivity
  • inherently safer processing
  • straight forward upscaling
  • continuous production possible
