(For over 150 years)

Chemistry has been performed since the dawn of time in batch (round bottom flasks, closed vessels etc…) where reactants are mixed and heated to form the desired prouct that then is extracted to clean the reaction vessel and start over the process.

However, a few decades ago, scientists started to rely on the direct injection of reactants into tubular reactors towards uninterrupted cost effective synthesis of the desired product.

Continuous flow

Smaller footprint

Improve mixing

Reduced solvent consumption

Safer production

Better control over reaction parameters

Continuous flow chemistry is an innovative technology platform granting industrials from all horizons a proper tool to gain economical & ecological viability on their manufacturing processes while reducing their overal footprint and security.


Solid handling

However, despite these competitive advantage, adoption of flow processes is considerably slowed down by a technical limitation: solid handling.

Solids are ubiquitous in chemistry with particules ranging from solid catalysts introduced (used to accelerate the rate of the reaction) to crystals or precipitates that can be generated along the chemical process.

Whatever the type of solid, they can be found in the form of slurries that will unfortunately sediment and end up clogging the channels of the flow reactor.

The impossibility to handle solids is a serious limitation to the scope of chemistry that can be transposed into continuous flow processes thus hindering the industrial transformation towards sustainability of chemical production.
With its liquid tube technology, Qfluidics develops cutting-edge non-clogging continuous flow reactors able to handle any type of slurry to finally take full advantage of the possibilities offered by continuous flow manufacturing.
