Autichem Ltd

About this exhibitor

Autichem is a UK based engineering company specialising in the design and manufacture of chemical reactors. We produce a range of designs utilizing our own patented flow reactor technologies.

The DART-DM® reactors are available in many different forms, shapes and sizes. Designed to be adaptable and versatile, DART solutions can be manufactured using a wide range of chemically resistant robust and reliable engineering materials.

Dynamic Mixing is the underpinning fundamental principle of our DART technology. Whereas most other flow reactor technologies rely on high throughput or complex flow geometries to generate turbulence, DART utilizes the well-established benefits of mechanical mixing. By decoupling mixing from throughput and eliminating the need for complex flow geometries, DART can uniquely handle a much broader range of process conditions. Processes involving suspended solids or slurries have proven particularly challenging for many of todays flow reactor designs. The unique mixing methodologies and agitator designs deployed in DART have demonstrated time and time again that these particular types of processes can be successfully converted from batch to continuous manufacturing.


DART-DM|Flow Reactor|Bespoke design and manufacturing

We offer a comprehensive range of value engineered, dynamically mixed continuous flow reactors and peripheral equipment.

Salient features include:

Modular design capable of operating as a single stage system, or as a multistage cascade, or for parallel processing.
Our reactors are fully scalable, with nominal working volumes from 3ml to industrial scales of 50L and beyond.
Variable Volume capabilities within a fixed tube geometry.
Materials of construction – Glass, Stainless Steels, Exotic Alloys such as Hastelloy C22 and chemically resistant engineering plastics, such as Peek, PTFE and PFA.
Single or Multi-Zone heating/cooling jacket options are available.
Bespoke designs to match unit operation and customer requirements.
Control System ranging from basic on/off agitation with variable speed, to a more sophisticated PLC based systems with optional ATEX certification.
3 Fundamental design forms cover a wide range of operating conditions.
DART reactors are dynamically mixed and can be used to tackle many challenging flow processes, involving gas, liquids and highly concentrated suspended solids.  Light sources can also be used for photochemisrty applications.
Reactors designed specifically for biochemistry and photochemistry are also available.
