Asynt Ltd. Release: Reactors With Ultimate Mixing Performance Offer Simpler Scale-Up


10/16/2012 11:43:55 AM

October 16, 2012 -- Asynt Ltd. in conjunction with Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS), a research group based within the University of Huddersfield, UK, have cooperated over the last 2 years to develop a new generation of chemical reactor.

By better understanding and improving the flow and thermal dynamics of the Asynt ReactoMate system the co-operation is able to now produce reactors that offer ultimate mixing performance. The benefits of this development for chemists will be simpler process development and scale-up, faster reactions, better reproducibility and improved selectivity.

Martyn Fordham, Managing Director of Asynt Ltd. commented "We were pleased to cooperate with IPOS on this development because of their considerable expertise in chemical engineering and experience in advising chemists on scaling reactions that were often rate limited by poor mixing". He added "At the start of our cooperation - Asynt ReactoMate reaction systems as with all of our competitors did not offer optimised mixing. Today however, we can offer customers the option to use ReactoMate to scale chemistries with well designed mixing by IPOS. This consideration has proven especially important when reaction chemistries are exothermic for example".

Dr Nicholas Powles, a Senior Research Fellow at IPOS commented "The complexities associated with optimising and scaling-up laboratory reactions are of critical importance in industrial process development. Our co-operation with Asynt will help commercialise the essential tools and 'know-how' for efficient process understanding and optimisation".

Asynt is a leading supplier of affordable products, consumables and services for chemists in industry and academia. With staff of trained chemists - Asynt is able to draw upon this in-depth applications knowledge to provide a high level of customer support for its DrySyn Heating Blocks, Controlled Lab Reactors, Synthesis Tools, Evaporators, Circulators, Temperature Control Systems, Vacuum Pumps and Laboratory Safety Equipment.

IPOS is a research group based within the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Huddersfield (UK). The primary focus of IPOS is delivery of external customer contracts. The group consists of a team of highly skilled, industrially experienced chemists specialising in the application of physical organic chemistry towards efficient optimisation of chemical processes. It is the aim of IPOS to provide these services on a contract basis to the chemical industry as a cost-effective means of process development.
