Biotech Fluidics reports on the development of a custom 8-channel DEGASi ® Plus inline degassing system for AutoSyn AB - a start-up company specialising in flow chemistry and continuous processing systems.
Existing off-the-shelf product solutions do not always cover user needs. For a critical customer application, the degassing performance offered by the AutoSyn advanced flow chemistry system was not sufficient. Due to space limitations the 8 solvent reservoirs in the system had to be placed below the point of use which required a positive nitrogen pressure to avoid cavitation. Further these space limitations called for a special degasser solution accommodating 8 degassing channels in one single unit.
In response to this need - Biotech Fluidics developed a custom 8-channel degasser to simultaneously degas delivery of eight different solvents. This application optimised custom degasser only took a few weeks from first idea to integration and operation with the AutoSyn flow chemistry system.
AutoSyn´s business expertise is the automation of chemical development. With their Autonomous Chemistry Lab flow chemistry system, they can optimise chemical reactions in weeks rather than months with inline and online analytics helping their customers to achieve the transition to greener and more sustainable products.
Hannes Schomaker, co-founder, and CTO of AutoSyn AB said “During the development of the Autonomous Chemistry Lab we sought a knowledgeable partner to engineer a high-performance degassing system optimised to remove reactive gases from solvents and solutions used in the system. We selected Biotech Fluidics because of their many years’ expertise in degassing technology and ability to quickly produce a degassing system that exactly met our needs. The build quality, degassing performance, and reliability of the resultant 8-channel DEGASi ® Plus module has exceeded our expectations”.
