About this exhibitor

Corning Incorporated is a world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. Drawing on  170- year history of materials science and process engineering knowledge, Corning creates and makes keystone components that enable high-technology systems for consumer electronics, mobile emissions control, telecommunications and life sciences. In last 18 years, Corning has brought a powerful process intensification platform to the chemical process industry : Corning® Advanced-Flow™ Reactors (AFR) and their application technologies, which cover from “fast” lab-scale continuous flow process development to “seamless” scale-up of flow processes to commercial, large-scale production.

Corning® Advanced-Flow Reactors are an inherently safer technology for the production of chemicals in the pharmaceutical, specialty and fine chemical industries. They are specially designed to enable the conversion from traditional batch to continuous flow chemical processing for lab to industrial-scale production.

The core of AFR technology is Corning’s integrated fluidic module with its patented HEART design, which we’ve meticulously engineered out of glass or silicon carbide materials to allow for rapid and seamless scale-up, as well as improved heat transfer and mass transfer (mixing). Our fluidic modules feature small internal channels to reduce reaction volume, which is a key factor in limiting potential risks in chemical processing.

Corning reactors are more durable in corrosive conditions and address a wide range of applications to enable increased efficiency, scalability, yields, and higher quality chemical processing at a much smaller footprint compared to traditional batch reactors.

Corning provides a variety of innovative continuous flow reactor products that are designed and optimized to quickly and seamlessly scale-up from academia & lab feasibility (Corning Nebula™ Education Kits, Lab Reactor System & Low-Flow) to process development (G1, G1 SiC, G1 Photo) to multi-ton industrial production of chemicals (G3, G3 Photo, G4 & G5).
