Shaoxing Eastlake Commissions Two new Millireactors from Ehrfeld Mikrotechnik
In 2016, Chinese company Shaoxing Eastlake High-Tech commissioned a millireactor which was designed, manufactured and supplied by Ehrfeld Mikrotechnik. The continuously operated Miprowa production reactor with a capacity of up to 10,000 t/a is using millistructures on a production scale and was designed for a highly exothermic alkoxylation reaction. It replaced more than 20 batch reactors while doubling the original capacity.
In Nov. 2018, Eastlake started implementing two more millireactors of the same size, thus tripling their production capacity at its Shaoxing site to 30,000 t/a. The new reactors are expected to be operational by the end of this year.
Shaoxing Eastlake High-Tech is an agrochemical producer founded in China near Shanghai in 1990, which not only serves the Chinese market, but also exports its products to more than 20 countries, including the US and EU. The company provides active ingredients to the global agrochemical market segment.
