KHIMOD reactor transformation

KHIMOD: TOWARD PROCESS INTENSIFICATION

KHIMOD’s disruptive technology can be intelligently applied to the production of valuable molecules for chemistry.

KHIMOD's innovative Heat Exchanger-Reactor takes us from batch to continuous production. It is a key component for process intensification due to its:

  • High ability to control temperature in exothermic or endothermic reactions allowing for maximum efficiency starting from small volumes
  • Solution for high scalability of production units
  • Higher selectivity and product purity synthesis

 

KHIMOD: A BREAKTHROUGH IN SAFETY

KHIMOD’s disruptive technology brings chemistry reactions to a higher level of safety. The embedded safety of KHIMOD's innovative Heat Exchanger-Reactor comes from:

  • Very low internal volumes of about a few liters compared to several m3 for equivalent production with batch reactors
  • Precise temperature control, avoiding unwanted by-products from chemical reactions or loss of stability of some chemical components
  • High performance diffusion bonding leading to the absence of weak joints within the Heat Exchanger-Reactor

 

KHIMOD: A KEY FEATURE FOR CHEMISTRY

Decisive characteristics of KHIMOD innovation:

  • Custom-designed Heat Exchanger-Reactors can be combined together and used in parallel to address needs from a small scale of 10kg/h to a massive scale of about 4000 kg/h
  • Drastically decreased by-product due to better thermal management
  • A travel time of reactants divided by 10 within KHIMOD's Heat Exchanger-Reactor (compared to batch production)
  • Capacity of exchanged heat-per-volume of Heat Exchanger-Reactor greater than 500 kW/m3/K (when batch reactors are limited to 1 kW/m3/K).
