Batch reactors process a single tank volume per operating cycle. A flow reactor by contrast can handle 100’s or even 1,000’s of reactor volumes between start up and shut down. This ability to process materials continuously contributes to significant reductions in equipment scale, even when the reaction time in flow is the same. Reduced equipment size combined with steady state operation variously contributes to lower capital cost, improved produ
