|Design and Fabrication of Ceramic Microchannel Microreactors|
|Keywords: microchannels, silicon carbide, microreactors|
|Microreactors offer the benefits of compactness, efficiency and point of use synthesis. In addition, the microscale architecture inherent in microreactors confers significant margins of reliability for components fabricated from ceramic materials. In this presentation the use of active and passive ceramic microreactors will be described. Active microreactors contain materials that play a role in the function of the device. Passive microreactors, on the other hand, only contain reactions and processes. The capabilities of a commercial scale manufacturing method for fabricating ceramic microchannel devices will be described. Accomplishments and challenges in this area will be described.|
