PID Microactivity-Reference Reactor
Product Announcement from Micromeritics
Particulate Systems, a division of Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, has been granted global distribution of the PID Eng&Tech Microactivity-Reference. These territories include North America, Central and South America (does not include Brazil), China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Benelux, United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa and Australia.
This completely automated, compact microreactor is the most advanced modular laboratory system in the world for measuring the activity and selectivity of catalysts. The standard platform can be easily adapted to the users' catalytic testing needs with a variety of configurations and options. The Microactivity-Reference has been designed to save time and resources at both the catalyst development stage and factory report process during catalyst screening. The system can accommodate a wide variety of reactions including hydrocracking, hydrotreating, isomerization, hydrogenation, hydrodesulphurization (HDS), oxidation, hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), polymerization, reforming (aromatization), steam reforming, to name a few.
The Microactivity-Reference is equipped with innovative process-control technology allowing the user to program a series of experiments on a personal computer and obtain real-time results with the highest degree of reproducibility and accuracy. It operates at pressures ranging from vacuum to 100 bar (with the same pressure control valve). The reaction temperature can range from room temperature to 1000 ºC (using special material reactors).
