Use CasesTransferring butyllithium, an inflammable chemical, under high pressure

Customer's Needs and Problems
A small volume of the chemical is supplied to a microreactor during tests of organic synthesis.
- To control the reaction precisely, it is necessary to transfer the liquid with a continuous, constant flow and no pulsation.
- The transfer liquid is butyllithium, which ignites when exposed to air, so this liquid must not leak.
- To inject the liquid into a narrow flow path, a discharge pressure of 10 MPa is required.
- Safety countermeasures against issues such as piping blockage are necessary, but safety valves and other such branch piping cannot be attached to the piping.
We suggested that the customer use a Smoothflow Pump, and they agreed to this proposal.
- Because the liquid can be supplied with a continuous, constant flow and no pulsation, it became possible to easily control the reaction.
- The completely sealed structure does not include any shaft seals, so it is now possible to safely transfer the liquid without any leakage.
- The mechanism of the pump drive part has been improved, making it possible to support high pressure.
- The pump body has a built-in relief mechanism, which makes it possible to prevent abnormal pressure increases.
