Chemical Plant: Equipment

  • Equipment includes chromatographic column, holding 200 kg of silica.
  • Large volume vessels are available to make up the mobile phase or collect core fractions (up to 3,000L).
  • All pipings to/from the vessels converge to a manifold where the desired connection can be done, avoiding dead-legs and making cleaning easier.
  • Most reactors are also equipped with spray-balls.
  • Three independent vacuum lines prevent the risk of back-flow of solvents.
  • A 50L hydrogenator in hastelloy is located in a safe area outside the pilot plant.
