Amar designed and patented Amar 2 is a specially manufactured micro reactor used for highly exothermic and fast reactions. The openable design makes cleaning of reactor possible for reactions involving the formation of solids.
Mixing of miscible liquids or immiscible liquids or gases creating dispersion of immiscible fluids or gases in liquids and carrying outvery fast, exothermic & homogeneous reactions. Some of the tested applications include nitrations, halogenations, sulfoxidation, sulfonation, esterification, diazotization, condensation reactions, halogenations, reduction, oxidation etc.
It comprises of broad channel (with width to depth ratio between 5 to 20) with flow past triangular objects to avoid formation of dead zones.
This helps to use maximum of the space and is scalable. Openable reactor plates enable easy cleaning especially for reactions involving solid formation.
