A glass flow reactor is now available in ceramic

By Gerald Ondrey |

Last month, Corning SAS (Avon, France), a subsidiary of Corning Inc. (Corning, N.Y.; www.corning.com), introduced the Advanced-Flow G4 Ceramic Reactor — the latest addition to the company’s line of glass flow reactors. The G4 is made of sintered-ceramic fluidic modules based on the design of the Advanced-Flow G1, G2 and G3 predecessors, which are made of glass. The similar design of the fluidic modules eases scaleup, with a throughput factor increase of more than 60 when going from the Advanced-Flow G1 through the high-flow G4. The G4 reactor has an internal volume of up to 6 L and has a processing capacity of more than 300 kg/h. The ceramic construction of the G4 — developed together with Mersen/Boostec (Paris; www.mersen.com) — has a “superior” thermal conductivity. Modules are connected together in a stainless-steel frame with Perlast gaskets, and can operate at temperatures from –25 to 200°C, and pressures up to 18 barg in the process path (up to 6 barg in the heat exchange path).   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
