PID Effi Microactivity Reactor

Fixed Bed Reactor

The PID/Particulate Systems Effi Microreactor, is a highly-advanced modular laboratory system for measuring the activity and selectivity of catalysts. The Effi Microreactor has been developed to help save time and resources at both the catalyst development stage and the factory report process during the screening.

It can accommodate a wide variety of reactions including hydrocracking, hydrotreating, isomerization, hydrogenation, hydrodesulphurization (HDS), oxidation, hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), reforming (aromatization), GTL (Fischer-Tropsch), and steam reforming, to name a few.

Performance Features:

  • null
    Fully configurable to be adapted to the specific user’s catalytic testing needs with a variety of configurations and options.
  • null
    The system is compact, completely automated, and equipped with innovative process-control technology.
  • null
    User can program a series of experiments on a PC and obtain real-time results with the highest degree of reproducibility and accuracy.
  • null
    Patented control systems have been specifically developed for this equipment, providing the ability to operate on a micro-scale. Flow range from tenths of mL/min to liters/min.
  • null
    Operation pressure from vacuum to 100 bar, reaction temperature from ambient to 1050oC

Two Dual Reactor Configurations are Available:

  • null
    The Duo configuration provides the ability to run two reactions in series with independent pressure control of each reactor.
  • null
    The Twin configuration provides the same advantages as the Duo and also has the ability to regenerate the catalyst in one reactor while running a reaction on the other reactor.
Configuration can also be setup as a complete parallel system. This includes two furnaces and reactors for parallel mode operation. Each reactor has its own temperature and pressure control and with the added valves and plumbing can also provide serial mode operation.

Standard Features:

  • null
    Gas mixer with three mass flow controllers for incoming gases
  • null
    Stainless-steel, 9-mm reactor
  • null
    Radiating oven with low thermal inertia capable of reaching 1050 oC
  • null
    Valve for bypassing the reactor enabling isolation while the feed analysis commences
  • null
    Liquid-gas separator

Optional Features:

  • null
    Additional gas inlets with individual mass flow controllers
  • null
    High pressure liquid-liquid-gas separator (GTL configuration)
  • null
    Additional 6-port valves for changing the direction of the flow or bypassing the separator
  • null
    Reactors of different sizes made from different materials to suit the needs of the reaction
Several options can be easily added to the Effi Microreactor, configuring the instrument to the exact needs of the researcher.
