  • Engineering Services for Continuous Manufacturing and for Modular Plants

    Product Engineering Services for Continuous Manufacturing and for Modular Plants

    Basic Engineering - Transform your optimized process into manufacturingMICROINNOVA's engineering team is turning developed continuous chemical laboratory processes into your desired manufacturing plants. Starting with first steps such as piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) and a User Requirement Specification (URS) will allow to fully understand your future manufacturing plant. Furthermore, we will provide you with an order-ready or budget offer.

    Detailed Engineering - Optimal design through our deep process understandingOur highly-skilled and experienced engineers design every single part of your plant systems. In the prepared 3D-designs we particularly focus on important issues such as optimization of hold-up volumes, avoiding of dead volume, narrow residence time distribution and enhanced usability. Naturally, cGMP- and ATEX-compliant designs are available for all plant systems. Microinnova will handle all of your concerns to realize your manufacturing plant.

    Plant realization - Commissioning and TrainingThis phase particularly is comprised of the processing of the order transaction, the controlling and monitoring of the plant assembly and the creation of documentation. The plant commissioning at the customer’s site is done by Microinnova's engineers. A plant with exceptional quality and process technology requirements, compliance with agreed dates and a complete documentation are important cornerstones of a successful project handling.

  • Flow Miniplant

    Product Flow Miniplant

    Bench-top pilot plant for development and small-scale production. The Flow Miniplant is Microinnova’s bench-top flow pilot-plant for the production of quantities between 1 and 100 litres per hour. It bridges the gap between lab-scale flow process development and bulk manufacturing. It’s an indispensable strong tool for development and small scale flow production as well. The Flow Miniplant is built-up of different ready-made modules for feeding, reaction, plug-flow et cetera (each module contains the necessary components for the process step like pumps and sensors). They can easily be changed, rearranged or supplemented according to the needs of your actual chemistry. A new operating system allows simple connection and easy control of the entire Flow Miniplant.
  • GMP Modular Continuos Manufacturing API Plant with Solids

    Product GMP Modular Continuos Manufacturing API Plant with Solids

    We specialize in process development and the design of modular plants and have developed an excellent concept for it. We provide the whole package. From process design, over cost evaluation, to your turnkey plant, optimized and tailored to suit your specific needs. The implementation of a modular plant grants increased flexibility through their adaptability and reusability. We will continue to be on the forefront of innovation in this field and are looking forward to helping you get a holistic view of modular and continuous plants, like we already have done with companies such as Evonik and GSK.

    PROCESS RESEARCH 

    Development of efficient synthesis routes using the advantages of continuous processing. 

    PROCESS DESIGN

    Decades of experience in process intensification, flow chemistry and continuous processing gives us the ability to investigate the best approach and strategy to put your process into an efficient system.

    CHEMICAL AND TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY

    Inside our flow lab scale plants we have multiple technologies available to develop continuous experimental procedures with the principal objective of showing a reliable mode of operation.

    OPTIMIZATION & PILOT PHASE

    Depending on the inherent characteristics each verified continuous process is optimized. The optimal processing window is determined on scalable equipment to finally deliver a robust continuous system.

    PLANT REALIZATION

    Our engineering team develops, designs and realizes continuous modular laboratory, pilot and manufacturing plants. According to requirements, the plants feature CE, ATEX or GMP compliance.

    Product Plant Debottlenecking by Continuous Manufacturing Case Study

    Debottlenecking through Continuous Production Capacity increase by means of small skids in the batch plantContinuous production will help you solve the bottlenecks you are currently facing with batch production. The advantages of continuous production are countless, but we have summarized and illustrated them for you to help you make the switch from batch to continuous production!

  • Continuous Manufacturing of Formulations in Minutes Instead of Hours

    Product Continuous Manufacturing of Formulations in Minutes Instead of Hours

    Microinnova Engineering GmbH has successfully commissioned two continuous formulation production plants for a European client. The design of the fully automated plant is very compact, which makes it possible to easily transport & install it at a different manufacturing site on the other side of the world.  It possesses an integrated Plug & Play concept, which means that 14 tons per day can be produced. All streams are controlled with precise mass flow meters, so no labor-intensive pre-weight of substances is needed and instant change of recipe is possible. This provides an easy capacity increase for the client and enables the production of new products.

    "This plant replaces several batch vessels, reduces processing time from hours to minutes, minimizes work hours and waste, enables constant product quality, increases safety and can be upgraded for different products", says project manager Mitja Ogrizek.

    Eight different liquid feeds with versatile viscosities are dosed into three static mixers to deliver the end product mixture, which is then used further in the production process. The plant can produce different polymer concentration mixtures and the produced amount can be regulated based on the daily supply demand of the customer. The continuous mixing system is fully automated and can easily be connected to the local site IT systems, such as SAP.

  • Video Modular Plants for Smart Manufacturing

    My name is Katharina and I will show you how continuous modular plants will change chemical processing for a more sustainable future, using modular plug & play plants. We see some issues with batch processing. Sometimes there are concentration spots, the walls are too hot for the molecules. Our philosophy is that all molecules should have the same processing conditions. This we realize by looking at the critical parameters of the chemistry and selecting the right process intensification technology. Furthermore, the space-time-yield can be maximized by a magnitude or more by reducing mass and heat transfer distances, leading to much shorter residence times and compact designs. Since we already have a continuous operating plant in the lab, scale-up becomes much easier. Continuous manufacturing allows for superior quality control due to advanced PAT. Standardized modules enable a quick realization of reduced time to produce and time-to-market. More infos below video!
