Technology for heterogeneous catalysis and adsorption processes


Revolutionize your reactions

With a SpinChem® Rotating Bed Reactor (RBR) you can eliminate slow reaction kinetics caused by poor mass transfer between your solution and solid phase. The SpinChem® RBR design is flexible and can be used for heterogeneous reactions with numerous types of solid phases, including immobilized enzymes, encapsulated cells and ion exchangers. Furthermore, it can be used for purification with metal scavengers, active carbon and water adsorbents. Utilizing the SpinChem® RBR typically results in faster processes, higher yields or reduced consumption of reagents, depending on the type of process. In addition, the SpinChem® RBR extends the lifetime of the solid phase particles by minimizing grinding and fines, while at the same time simplifying the solid phase collection and recycling. The SpinChem® RBR concept is fully scalable, from laboratory to production, thus providing more efficient reaction development and improved production economy.

A clever concept

The SpinChem® Rotating Bed Reactor (RBR) retains the solid phase as a packed bed inside the rotating cylinder. As the RBR spins, a continuously circulating flow develops. Reaction solution is rapidly aspirated from the bottom of the vessel, percolated through the solid phase and quickly returned to the vessel. By the intelligent design of the SpinChem® RBR and vessel, the axial mixing and convective transport are maximized. The resulting efficient mass transfer minimizes reaction time, and boosts product yields. This holds even for liquids that are immiscible or of different viscosity, as well as for reactions demanding distribution of dissolved gases.
