KHiMii flow reactors deliver 5 key benefits

Faster

  • Shorter time-to-market enabled by a seamless process scale-up
  • Ability to generate small samples that are fully representative of the full-scale production

Safer

  • Precise control of the temperature even for extreme exothermic or endothermic reactions
  • Ability to handle safely liquids or gas even at very high pressure or temperature
  • Much smaller reaction volume than in batch process

Greener

  • Opportunity to reduce dramatically the use of solvents

Better

  • Precise control of pressure and temperature even in extreme conditions allows to deliver high yield and selectivity
  • Option to use fixed bed catalysts

Cost effective

  • Lower CAPEX than in batch process due to smaller reactors, utilities and safety systems
  • Cost advantage even higher when high corrosion resistant metals are required
  • OPEX reduction with a faster reaction by working safely at high pressure or temperature
  • Ability to adjust the production CAPEX gradually, in line with the demand
  • Our proprietary reactor design makes us much more cost effective than any other flow reactors for large production scale

 

Why KHiMii instead of other flow reactors?

  • The design or our reactor is identical from the lab to the full industrial scale enabling a seamless scale-up
  • KHiMii reactors are monobloc and can be made from any metals
  • No leakage even at extreme pressure (up to 200 Bar) or temperature (up to 400°C)
  • Easy cleaning  making it suitable for a multi-purpose workshop
  • Opportunity to use heterogeneous catalysts
  • Our technology is much more cost effective than other flow reactors, even at large production scale
