Ehrfeld Mikrotechnik BTS designed, manufactured and supplied a MIPROWA production reactor for Shaoxing Eastlake Biochemical (China) for a production capacity of up to 10,000 t/a. The MIPROWA millireactor with a throughput of about 1m3/h has a nominal width of 400 mm and a length of 7 m and contains about 150 rectangular reaction channels with exchangeable static mixers.
The continuously operated millireactor replaces more than 20 batch reactors. The fast and strong exothermic reaction is of alkoxylation type. Decision for Miprowa technology was driven by achievable product quality, significantly improved yield, safety aspects and a short return on investment.
