A big field of interest as of lately has been process intensification which is a design approach that focuses on smaller, cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient processes. One design that has received considerable attention as of late has been the spinning disc reactor (SDR). Its basic design includes one or more liquid streams being flowed onto a quickly rotating disc.
Based on recent computational and experimental studies, hesperidin, a bioactive flavonoid abundant in citrus peel, stands out for its high binding affinity to the main cellular receptors of SARS-CoV-2, outperforming drugs already recommended for clinical trials. Thus, it is very promising for prophylaxis and treatment of COVID-19, along with other coexistent flavonoids such as naringin, which could help restraining the proinflammatory overreaction of the immune system. Controlled hydrodynamic cavitation processes showed the highest speed, effectiveness and efficiency in the integral and green aqueous extraction of flavonoids, essential oils and pectin from citrus peel waste.

Infinity Supercritical is now offering build plans and methodology for water cavitation and botanical oil extraction. The system can also produce nano-emulsions. This same SDR (Spinning Disc Reactor) technology can also be used to produce silver nanoparticles and other hi-tech (liquid battery and component) manufacturing. This technology may be a huge impact for manufacturing for companies like Quantum Scape and Ambri liquid metal technology.
The Spinning Disc Reactor (SDR) is a method that provides rapid processing. This can be used for extracting oil from hemp, producing silver nanoparticles, and other hi-tech applications. While water cavitation is the primary use, this system can also be used for oil-to-oil botanical extraction. The system can also be used for experimenting with nano-emulsions. This systems allows you to develop and show cavitation and mixing science.
