The LSMagS magnetic paddle reactor is an innovative reactor type with built-in, permanently magnetic agitator paddles. The reactor can be used for all applications that involve magnetic particles. As part of its mechanical principle, magnetic particles (in nano or micro sizes) attach to the paddles when the system is idle. During the rotation of the agitator, the magnetic particles detach and are resuspended in the solution for their corresponding reactions.
The paddles have different magnetic forces and vary in design depending on the specific problem. The design ensures easy separation of reaction media and catalysts. There are no strong magnetic fields as in the case of external magnets to separate magnetic particles. The system allows for easy upscaling to production scale as well as multiple runs. The patent for our novel reactor is pending.
