Batch wise

Fine chemical industry

The Fine Chemical Industry is characterized by chemical processes often run batch wise and in low to medium production volumes. Products resulting from fine chemical processing are found in the life sciences (such as active pharmaceutical ingredients or intermediates thereof, chromatography media and X-ray media), cosmetics, food, agriculture and mineral industries.

CHEMICAL REACTION

A standard fine chemical process consists of one or several reactors to which raw materials are charged. The chemical reaction is controlled and measured to ensure a safe and efficient operation. At the end of the process, the solid product is usually separated from the liquid slurry in order to be dried. Drying is usually performed under vacuum to keep the temperature low and be gentle on the product. After drying, the product powder often needs to be screened to ensure the right particle size distribution.

CHALLENGES

Fine chemical processes commonly face several simultaneous challenges: tough chemical conditions (involving flammable solvents, hazardous raw materials, corrosive acids and bases), that demand accurate process control (for temperature, pressures, reaction times, etc), and must meet safety and containment requirements through the process and in the end product.

PROCESS EQUIPMENT

In cooperation with our worldwide partners in this sector, we can provide process equipment and systems in various materials for constructing reactors, condensers, filter/dryers, and dryers as well as solutions for contained handling of raw materials, intermediates, and the final product in both solid and liquid form.
Since Thurne started as a company, we have focused on API (active pharmaceutical ingredients) and fine chemical applications – with reactors being the heart of the product line.
As fine chemical environments often are corrosive, our range of materials is one of the most complete you can find: 316L, tantalum, glass lining, borosilicate glass, nickel alloys, graphite, PTFE, other metal alloys, and plastics.
We also have a strong focus on containment challenges in handling hazardous powders, and deep expertise in building complete process equipment for all material handling in toxic environments.
