HANU™ HX 150

HANU™ HX 150 Flow Reactors

To further scale up your (photo)chemical process, the HANU™ HX 150 Flow Reactor was developed. By simply widening the process channel, the internal volume of the reactor is increased by ten-fold (150 ml), and thanks to the innovative COSTA™ technology, all the crucial process characteristics - process path length, irradiation properties, mass and heat transfer, residence time distribution and so on – remain unaffected.

Ajinomoto Bio-Pharma Services will soon have a scaled-up HANU™ HX 150 Flow Reactor in operation at its cGMP pilot plant in Wetteren, Belgium.
