Spinning Disk Reactors (SDR’s) combine the heat transfer advantages of micro-reactors with the dynamic mixing associated with high shear mixers. A rotating disk is positioned as close as 50 uM to a jacketed cold plate where it may reach very high rates of speed—up to 14,000 RPM. With mixing Reynold’s numbers approaching 800,000, mixing and energy transfer are profoundly greater in SDR’s compared to tubular reactors.
- The Synthetron™ is a 1.3 mL lab scale single disk SDR that uses a micrometer to adjust the initial mixed volume to as small as 10 uL.
- Adjustable distance between the stator and the rotor allow precise control over the mixing environment, as well as enabling dispersion of gas, and solids.
- Inlet ports on both the side and top of the disc enable mult-stage addition and quench strategies.
- Suitable for flow rate ranges 100’s of uL/min up to 200 mL/min.
- -40°C to 150°C operating temperature.
- Pressure operation up to 150 psi.
- Touch-screen Programmable Logic Controller for data input/output. Four(4) K-type thermocouple ports, and Two(2) pressure transmitter ports are standard. Customizable configurations are possible.
- Stainless Steel, Hastelloy, or Tantalum Coated reactor surfaces.
- Scalable to Flowid’s R10 and R300 reactors
