Timelapse of a Process Skid Assembly at AM Technology

The Engineers at AM Technology were extremely busy last week as we received two skid-frameworks for an ongoing project. We filmed a time-lapse of the assembly of one of the skids which you can watch here…





This project combines Coflore® ATR reactors with various other bits of kit such as large batch reactor feed vessels and continuous wiped film evaporation to provide a complete solution for our client.

Skid 1 will incorporate 2x 10 L Coflore® ATR reactors and in total, there will be 7 skids all containing different equipment. The end result will allow our client to handle a multistage process involving batch chemistry, flow chemistry, work ups and crystallisations. When complete, a total of 6 x 10 L Coflore® ATR systems will allow for production of 44 Litres of crude material per hour!


AM Technology’s in-house chemical engineer Andy Karras said “Our tagline at AM Technology is “Engineering Chemistry” and that’s exactly what we have achieved with this project. Our client has a complex process with multiple steps and as such AM Technology have collaborated with various other partners to allow us to deliver a complete system including kit such as wiped film evaporation and crystallisation. We have been working hard on this project for a couple of years now and it is fantastic to see it near completion”.

We look forward to sharing more on this project as time progresses!
