Scalable Flow reactors

Flow-reactor-Fluitec.jpg

In the current Innosuisse research project together with HEIA-FR and DSM-Firmenich, new types of dynamic flow reactors are being developed and made available for industrial use. The flow behaviour (PFR / CSTR) is being characterised at the Fribourg University of Applied Sciences HEIA-FR and at DSM-Firmenich. In the further course of the project, all possible test reactions will be carried out. Are you interested in detailed information on the test results? Contact Ms M. Moser (mm@fluitec.ch) directly for an online meeting.

Food temperature control

Fluitec-Temperieranlage.jpg

Fluitec offers complete assemblies for precise temperature control of food products. Viscous and temperature sensitive products can be gently heated up or cooled down without causing any damage to the product such as discolouration and encrustation due to local temperature peaks.

The Fluitec CSE-XR and CSE-W heat exchangers have proven themselves in the food sector as the core components. The systems can be equipped with pumps, instrumentation and controls and installed on a rack.

A good surface finish of the components with low surface roughness and good cleanability of the equipment is very important to Fluitec. The picture shows a Fluitec system for tempering chocolate for a throughput of 450 kg/h.

Possible applications:

  • Chocolate and filling masses
  • Animal and vegetable fats such as margarine
  • Vegetable oils
  • Dairy products such as in the pre-cooling of milk
  • Peanut butter
  • Processed cheese
  • Sugar masses
  • Sauces and ketchup

Optimisation of Hydrogenation

Successful optimisation of a hydrogenation reactor and significant catalyst savings with the new Contiplant reactor from Fluitec.

It is well known that almost all hydrogenation reactions take place under mass transfer limited conditions. In addition, there is an increasing demand for the use of catalyst powder in small quantities.

Due to a novel gassing concept and an efficient cooling system, higher mass transfer rates and thus higher space-time yields can be achieved in the Fluitec reactor at pressures of up to 100 bar and temperatures of up to 250°C as standard, with generally improved product quality. The payback time for converting a trickle bed reactor to a Fluitec hydrogenation reactor is only 1-3 catalyst changes. Furthermore, there is the possibility of measurement of the temperature profile in the reactor. This allows not only process optimisation but also safe and reliable reaction monitoring.
