Primary Processing Services

We offer crystallisation development services with platforms  covering both batch and continuous methods e.g. cooling, anti-solvent,reactive and evaporative crystallisation.

Our largest laboratory in TIC houses 12 multi-functional walk-in fume cupboards. These bespoke units are highly reconfigurable to meet the needs of industrial research projects into both batch and continuous crystallisation processes. The fume hoods can be configured to accommodate a 3.8 m long process with pass through ports for PAT probes and fibres plus data communications to monitor processes in-line.
