Solving Residual Solvent: Introducing Pre-flash Evaporation

February 19, 2020

As part of our core pursuit to drive efficiency, we often seek to integrate new inline processes. Today we want to highlight an element of our approach we are terming “Pre-flash.” The primary science for this process, flash evaporation, is well established and frequently used in chemical manufacturing industries. Using this method, our clients enjoy…

When to Procure Equipment

July 24, 2020

By Brandon Colletti [talk to brandon at brandonc@sciphysystems.com] Across the industry we’ve seen examples of eager new processors and extractors procuring equipment before they are fully prepared, or a facility has been identified. This can lead to costly delays and opportunity cost, as there is an optimal balance that must be struck between choosing the…
