Configurable Activity and Selectivity Testing in a Small Footprint
Scientists in catalyst development and screening save time and resources with the Micromeritics Flow Reactor series. The highly advanced modular laboratory screening models Micromeritics FR-50, FR-100, and FR-200 accommodate a wide variety of reactions including but not limited to hydrocracking, hydrotreating, isomerization, hydrogenation, hydrodesulphurization (HDS), oxidation, hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), reforming (aromatization), GTL (Fischer-Tropsch), and steam reforming. These benchtop reactors are also ideal for research studies on topics such as biofuels, methane activation, and sustainable reactions and bring commercially relevant conditions for catalyst research into the lab
The FR series compact design saves expensive lab space and can be optionally installed within a fume hood. Highly accurate and reliable reaction studies are ensured by embedded temperature and pressure control sensors along with automated routines that can be easily customized for a variety of applications. The powerful, safe, and flexible platform for bench-scale reactors allows scientists to focus on their research rather than building a unit themselves. Options to interface with LC, GC, FTIR systems or expansion options for additional gas and liquid feeds, or a Liquid Liquid Gas (LLG) separator are available.
The Micromeritics FR Series Features Three Models:
- Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-50: Compact automated catalyst testing unit
- Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-100: Advanced modular and automated laboratory system for measuring catalytic activity and selectivity
- Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-200: Dual-reactor system that may be configured to perform reaction studies in series or parallel
Micromeritics has extensive experience building bespoke catalyst screening units for industrial and academic customers, from tailored analytical units through to complete pilot plants. More information on the Micromeritics Flow Reactor series can be obtained from micromeritics.com/flow-reactors.
