Corning® Advanced-Flow™ Reactors

Continuous Flow Reactor Systems

Corning® Advanced-Flow™ Reactors

Corning® Advanced-Flow™ Reactors are high-throughput, easily scalable reactors that enable cost-effective solutions for a wide range of reactions in continuous flow chemistry applications. Every reactor in the product line is built around the same fundamental component – the integrated fluidic module, a meticulously engineered reactor plate made of either glass or silicon carbide – which allows for rapid and seamless scale-up from lab scale to commercial production. The Corning Advanced-Flow Reactors division is headquartered in Samois-sur-Seine, France. As part of the Corning family, we provide customers with a cost-effective solution, specialized engineering support, and more than 165 years of materials and process expertise.

Corning’s reactor technology offers dramatic savings in space, cost, and time while also enhancing purity, increasing yields, and substantially improving the quality, confidence in manufacturing, and economics of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. These reactors are also inherently safer, more efficient, and more durable in corrosive conditions than other continuous flow reactors on the market today.

Benefits of Corning Reactors

Corning® Advanced Flow™ Reactor Technology offers four key benefits over traditional batch processing:

  1. Inherently safer technology
  2. Better and more consistent product and process quality
  3. Lower OPEX and CAPEX
  4. Reduced environmental impact

These benefits are enabled by the:

  • Continuous and small-scale nature of Corning® Advanced Flow™ Reactor Technology, which allows for much lower reaction volumes (holdups) than batch reactors and is compatible with real-time, in-line monitoring.
  • Design of the fluidic modules, which facilitate better mixing, narrow residence time distribution, and superior heat and mass transfer than both batch reactors and other continuous flow reactors and can be readily reconfigured to meet the needs of thousands of different reactions at multiple scales.
  • Configuration of the reactors themselves, which are optimized to limit the potential impact of catastrophic events.
  • Quality of Corning’s materials, which are more resistant to corrosion and thermal shock than competitive materials used in similar configurations.
