Flow reactor

Flow reactor systems
KeyChem Series

KeyChem is an abbreviation for keyboard chemistry. “Keyboard chemistry” has been coined by YMC by combining the words “Keyboard” (as in computer control) and “Chemistry”, to represent the new concept of a chemical reaction methodology that YMC is creating. Central to this concept is the microreactor system, which allows computer-controlled flow reaction and enables the setting of all the conditions of a chemical reaction from start to finish, via the keyboard of a computer.

Heterogeneous flow reactor systems
KeyChem-Integral

  • Single system plays 4 roles : Reaction of Gas-Liquid,Liquid-Liquid, Solid-Liquid and Solid-Liquid-Gas
  • Porous Teflon® (AF2400) is used for the reactor of Gas-Liquid reaction
  • Flow rate, temperature and pressure are controllable
  • The number of units and combinations are selectable
