Mixing in NiTech Solutions reactors is achieved by eddies which are generated by the combination of fluid oscillation and the presence of baffles. Mixing is not controlled by net flow as in other flow reactors.
This unique ability to decouple net flow from mixing in continuous oscillatory baffled reactor/crystallizer (COBR/C) accommodates longer reaction/process times e.g. 2 hours. NiTech Solutions tubular baffled reactor (TBR) technology can be used for reaction times from seconds to a few minutes.
The pie chart below illustrates the reaction time distributions for a large number of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and food products. This chart shows that NiTech Solutions technology is applicable for a wide range of applications (~80 %), based on the inherent kinetic times.
