Chemical Reactors & Bioreactors

Veryst assists clients in solving challenging problems involving chemical reactors and bioreactors.  We employ advanced simulation and multiphysics tools in addition to analytical models to address the many layers of coupled physics – fluid flow, heat transfer, chemical reactions, thermodynamics, and porous media – that are often involved in reacting systems.  Our engineers have applied their deep understanding of these underlying physical phenomena in applications such as reactor scale-up, focusing on the associated changes in the rates of relevant transport processes, distributor manifold design, and prediction of mass transfer in multiphase systems.
