Corning SAS

Corning Incorporated is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. Drawing on more than 160 years of materials science and process engineering knowledge, Corning creates and makes keystone components that enable high-technology systems for consumer electronics, mobile emissions control, telecommunications and life sciences.

In last 15 years, Corning has brought to the chemical process industry with a powerful process intensification platform: Corning® Advanced-Flow Reactor (AFR) and their application technologies, which cover from fast lab-scale flow process development to seamless scale-up of flow process to commercial production.

Transferring chemical synthesis from traditional batch technology to continuous flow bring significant advantages in the reduction of cost, and in the management of safety that are usually associated with process scale-up. In the pharmaceuticals and fine and specialty chemicals industries products quality and requirement becomes today crucial parameters. With traditional batch technology, it is often not possible to maintain optimum product quality when scaling up a process in a short period of time. However, seamless scale-up can be achieved via straight-forward methodology due to the consistent performance of Corning AFR: 1000x improvement in heat transfer, 10-100x enhancements in multiphase mixing, x/1000 reduction in chemical holdup comparing with conventional stirred batch reactors.

Scaling up processes using Corning AFR is faster than with traditional batch process and the time to market is drastically reduced. In addition, this technology reduces development and production costs.

Corning® Advanced-Flow Reactors have been successfully applied in a variety of flow-chemistry process developments. This talk will present the product and several cases of applications that have been seamless transferred from lab scale directly to industrial productions.
