Up to 10X EFFICIENCY OVER EXISTING industrial separation technologies of critical and metal feedstocks

Commercial Fiber Reactor Technology

Visionary Fiber Technologies has developed patented high-throughput industrial fiber reactors for liquid-liquid separations, biocatalyst & reactive extractions

Fiber reactor technology provides 10 times the available surface area used to mix immiscible liquids compared to other industrial two-phase column mixers including static columns with packed media and agitated columns.

It is highly efficient at driving chemical processes to equilibrium.

The core of the technology resides in the fiber induced microchannel array extending down the column length where thin layers of liquid streams can be efficiently contacted.

Microchanneling dramatically increases the surface area of interfacial contact between two immiscible liquids and reduces reactor residence time.

Lack of chaotic churn mixing results in rapid and neat phase segregation between the immiscible liquids to permit shorter settling tanks.

Benefits of Fiber Reactor Technology



VFT fiber reactor technology enables efficient stream processing at low operating expenses to remove contaminants.


Whether it involves recovery of aromatics used in flavors and fragrances, rare earths and metals needed for various catalysts, electronics and medical devices, or premium ingredients destined for biopharma and nutraceutical compounding, VFT can develop a process which achieves the intended goals while doing so in a cost-effective manner.


The high surface area achieved by the fiber reactor can be utilized to drive any chemical reaction to equilibrium which requires intimate contact between two immiscible liquids.
