Micro Reactor Technology

Due to the needs for higher yields, enhanced efficiency, improved safety and minimized environmental risk, the chemical industry seeks alternatives to the conventional batch reactors. The industry trend is to adopt micro reactors as an alternative method especially for organic synthesis of extremely exothermic (im)miscible fluids.

Gas supply in steelmaking process

In steelmaking, blast furnaces convert iron ore into crude iron by the reducing action of carbon at high temperatures. This crude iron or ‘pig iron’ still contains a lot of carbon and other impurities that need to be removed, partially or totally, by a reaction with oxygen.
