SERICHIM your partner of choice from the basic idea to process validation

Quality issue:
Continuous processes often provide better quality of the final product. They always ensure greater stability, because operate at steady state and operating conditions change very little.

Investment costs issue:
To get same productivity smaller equipment is required with respect to batch processes (tens of liters instead of cubic meters), with significant savings in terms of equipment, buildings, structures, apparatuses, and scrubber facilities. Safety issues, for example explosion-proof equipment, can be lower grade and less expensive since the quantity simultaneously in process is lower with respect to batch process. The equipment costs are generally 3.5 times lower than batch plants.

Production costs issue:
The main reasons that ensure lower production costs are
lower labor costs, because of the high automation degree of continuous apparatuses, and the
higher extent of solvent recycling also causing lower environmental impact.

Time to market issue:
The amount of product is easily scalable depending by project requirements. Preliminary tests can be conducted by using the product obtained in short runs. Then larger quantities, typical of industrial productions, can be obtained by running the same plant continuously.
Pilot tests and industrial production are done with the same apparatus, only by changing the “time on stream”, with lower costs, shorter time lags and fewer validation issues, which would be required if plants were modified.

Compact Chem ™ technology provides chemical and process development while defining the optimal continuous plant.
The customer gets tailormade know-how and a pilot plant that can easily be run at an industrial production.
