A simple way of mixing small volumes (microliters or milliliters) of reagents is by repeatedly dispensing and withdrawing solution from a microwell or tube. In this case study, we use a two-phase multiphysics simulation with coupled fluid flow and mass transfer to analyze the efficacy of this active mixing process.
Scaling chemical reactions from the lab to pilot or production requires a detailed understanding of the physical system, which frequently involves heat transfer, mass transfer, reaction kinetics, and fluid flow. This case study illustrates how multiphysics simulations can support design decisions involved in scaling up chemical reactors.
Veryst assists clients with the selection of adhesive materials, development of bonding processes, and mechanical analysis of interfaces. We employ chemical characterization, mechanical testing, and advanced computational methods to design robust adhesively bonded structures and to understand delamination failures.
Chemical reactors and bioreactors involve many layers of physics, including fluid flow, heat transfer, chemical reactions, and porous media. A deep knowledge of the underlying physical phenomena is essential when scaling up reactors.
Veryst engineers and scientists offer additional specialized expertise in a wide range of important areas, including the following fields. In each case, we concentrate on meeting client need through the application of fundamental engineering science.
