We can deliver commercial continuous flow reaction and crystallisation technology at laboratory, pilot plant and manufacturing scale.
We can conduct feasibility studies for customers at our partner laboratories in France and Sweden in order to assist with the transfer of processes from batch to continuous.
Our project for Croda aims to convert one of its major products from a batch to continuous process. The Institute for Manufacturing at Cambridge University is supporting the project by analysing the business model for full-scale commercial adoption across the UK.
The joint project with the Sustainable Environment Research Centre (SERC) at the University of South Wales (USW) aims to optimise renewable energy generation and storage, allowing interoperability between distribution networks and matching energy supply and demand profiles at regional and national scale.
Distributed manufacturing also reduces financial risk, as the investment required is very much smaller than for large-scale, centralised complexes. It is far more flexible, as it allows plants to be installed to meet local needs. These can then be adapted or relocated as required in response to changing market needs.
NiTech’s mobile continuous production platform (MCPP) – the DN Ultra – is a complete manufacturing system developed and manufactured in association with engineering partner Alconbury Weston. The platform includes a fully integrated reaction, crystallisation, filtration and drying system that can be easily scaled up to produce higher volumes by increasing the number of units used.
