This compact and versatile kilolab shows the combination of different Buchi equipment in one plant.
Reactors, filters, gas scrubbers, dosing and control components, were installed in minimal space at the R+D kilo lab at Teva ratiopharm in Ulm, Germany.

Hydrogenations, low-temperature reactions (-80 °C), chemical processes with strong bases are executed in the system, which serves for Final Step processing also.

Customer statement:
«The great advantage when planning the system was that Buchi provided everything from a single source. The merging of the two systems went smoothly and as a sole supplier responsible for the glass process equipment, the autoclave and the complete control, the potential for error was kept low while the quality was kept at a high level.»
