Products

NiTech’s highly innovative range of reactors and crystallizers offers manufacturers a flexible and versatile way to enhance product quality, reduce costs, and minimise waste and energy use. They can complement existing production at any scale to bring step-change improvements. They are also the perfect solution for any company considering distributed manufacturing.

NiTech can deliver commercial continuous-flow reaction and crystallization technology at production, pilot or laboratory scale.

The DN15 range can be manufactured in glass, stainless steel, Hastelloy® or other materials to meet specific temperature, pressure and anti-corrosion requirements, as well as to ATEX standards. Small and large runs can be completed quickly and cost-effectively.

NiTech’s® reactors produce the right product first time, every time. Mass/heat transfer constraints are removed and overall reaction times are dramatically reduced. Processing is inherently safer as the unit minimises the amount of hazardous materials required and provides close and simple control over reaction temperatures.

NiTech’s® crystallizers have the unique ability to produce solids with a uniform size and distribution. Crystallization time is reduced and scale-up is linear with constant parameters.
