The modular design of the Contiplant system is based on Fluitec’s continuous mixer / heat exchangers. It allows each process to be developed quickly and precisely for the target product on a laboratory scale.
The Fluitec scale-up system
Our mixer / heat exchangers can be scaled up easily and accurately because a constant surface-to-volume ratio is maintained regardless of the size of the apparatus.
The design of the mixing elements is simultaneously adapted so that the local flow patterns – and hence the specific power – also remain constant. This is possible thanks to the various, complex mixer / heat exchanger generations.
Apparatus of different sizes but with an identical surface-to-volume ratio are defined along the scale-up lines, so that precise scale-ups can be realised very simply.
