Flow Chemistry

Dispersion and Emulsification of Agrochemical Formulations

Customer Requirement: An efficient, scalable and continuous flow process for the dispersion and emulsification of special agrochemical formulations.

 

Challenges:

  • Scalable process

  • Very large production volumes

  • Should work at high production throughput.

 

Process:

  • Different dispersion techniques were evaluated

  • Proof of Concept (PoC) was performed using the selected method

  • Optimization of the dispersants was performed

 

Solution: TecSolut build pilot plant for medium scale production of formulations. TecSolut, together with the customer, are in the process of scale-up development for full scale production.

Continuous Chemical Reaction in Ultra-High Shear Mixers (UHSMs)

Customer Requirement: An efficient, scalable and continuous-flow chemical reaction for a major industrial chemical.

 

Challenges:

  • Scalable process

  • Very large production volumes

  • Should work at high production speed

  • Very-high yield required

  • Multi-reagent process

 

Process:

  • Flow reaction processes were evaluated

  • Proof of Concept (PoC) was performed using one of the methods proposed by TecSolut

  • Optimization of the reaction method was performed

 

Solution: The chemical process was optimized for lab-scale production. Currently we are in the process of optimizing the production process on a pilot scale.
