Abstract (en)

An improved multi-purpose production system comprising a group of N batch process facilities, N outlet extending from bottoms of the respective process facilities, N inlet pipes extending from tops of the respective process facilities, an M:K automatic pipe connection (2), and an L:1 automatic pipe connection (1). The N outlet pipes and N inlet pipes, which extend from the tops and bottoms of the respective process facilities, are connected to corresponding inlet pipes and outlet pipes of the M:K automatic pipe connection. Further, a remaining inlet pipe (10) or desired one of remaining inlet pipes of the M:K automatic pipe connection and the single outlet pipe of the L:1 automatic pipe connection are connected together. L, K and M are desired integers indicating the numbers of the corresponding pipes, N stands for a desired integer indicating the number of the process facilities, M >/= N+1, and K >/= N. <IMAGE>
