Automated Platform for Studies of Continuous Reactions
Our Parallel Fixed-Bed Reactor (PFBR) is an automated platform with parallel flow-through reactor tubes for rapid catalyst and process optimization. This flexible platform can address various vapor phase applications in chemicals and refining catalysis laboratories.
The modular PFBR provides a fully automated platform in which 16 to 48 reactions can be conducted simultaneously, complete with simple graphical user interface to control hardware. Flow uniformity is essential for the system’s operation, and a unique micro-machined flow distribution chip is used for this purpose. The system enables scientists to design experiments, execute the reactions in parallel, monitor and record process conditions, and analyze reaction products in real-time using the PFBR as one complete package.
The PFBR is engineered for reliability and flexibility, with only a single high-pressure seal and easily changed components between experiments. The software allows scientists to design and modify experiments in real time. Research teams can explore a broad range of catalysts, space velocities, temperatures, and pressures. Various analytical options exist (such as GC, GCMS, and FTIR).
