Visionary Fiber Technologies has developed patented high-throughput industrial fiber reactors for liquid two-phase systems
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.
