“Proteaf’s technical expertise and experience in continuous chemistry make them a perfect partner to work with to expand our work in markets such as pharmaceuticals” -Doug Mancosky, VP of R&D at HDI
Rome, GA (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
Hydro Dynamics, Inc. (HDI) of Rome, Georgia (http://www.hydrodynamics.com) announced today that it will be partnering with Proteaf Technologies (Proteaf) of Palos Verdes Estates, CA (http://www.proteaf.com) for implementing its Shock Wave Power Reactor (SPR) cavitation technology in high value continuous processing. Continuous flow chemistry through process intensification has been widely used in the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical markets for decades. The continuous chemistry has been especially gaining interest in pharmaceuticals due to its potential for improved process safety, quality, production capacity and yield as well as space savings and reduced reagent use.
Utilizing the shockwaves of cavitation, the SPR can often use its process intensification to allow traditionally batch reactions to be converted to true continuous reactions. HDI has implemented this commercially in applications such as biodiesel transesterification, allowing increases in yield and product quality.
Proteaf provides HDI a conduit to an exciting array of applications and customers well suited for the SPR. “Proteaf’s technical expertise and experience in continuous chemistry make them a perfect partner to work with to expand our work in markets such as pharmaceuticals”, explains Doug Mancosky, VP of R&D at HDI. “Proteaf tempers their technical solutions with strong underlying business knowledge to offer clients a complete picture of the benefits of process intensification."
About Hydro Dynamics
Hydro Dynamics is the developer of a patented cavitation process intensification technology called the ShockWave Power Reactor (SPR), enabling customers to solve critical mixing and heating problems. Reactors are operating on four continents with well-known customers in applications as diverse as increasing biogas yields to mixing petroleum drilling mud to more efficient homogenization and pasteurization of liquid eggs. The SPR allows customers to significantly decrease costs and increase profits, often with environmental and safety benefits.
