Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MAKING SOLID BEADS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR FABRIQUER DES PERLES SOLIDES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for making solid beads is provided, the apparatus comprising at least one liquid droplet generator operable to generate droplets comprising a solute dissolved in a solvent, and at least one flow channel for carrying a second liquid, at least one liquid droplet generator and at least one flow channel being spaced relative to one another so that, in use, liquid droplets pass through a gas into a second liquid provided in said flow channel, the solvent being soluble in the second liquid so as to cause the solvent to exit the droplets, thus forming solid beads. A method of preparing solid beads is also provided.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil destiné à fabriquer des perles solides; il comprend au moins un générateur de gouttelettes liquides capable de produire des gouttelettes comprenant un soluté dissous dans un solvant, et au moins un canal d'écoulement destiné à transporter un second liquide, au moins un générateur de gouttelettes liquides et au moins un canal d'écoulement étant espacés l'un par rapport à l'autre de sorte que, en cours d'utilisation, les gouttelettes liquides passent à travers un gaz dans un second liquide se trouvant dans ledit canal d'écoulement, le solvant étant soluble dans le second liquide de façon à ce que les gouttelettes soient débarrassées du solvant, ce qui forme des perles solides. L'invention concerne également un procédé de préparation de perles solides.
