For catalyst characterization and analysis of catalytic reactions

Hiden’s modular CATLAB-PCS offers a wide range of experimental tools for catalyst researchers, from rapid dynamic screening to fully automated precise investigations of active surface chemistry and optimization of catalytic activity.

Catalysis For the determination of surface composition, contaminant analysis and for depth profiling


The CATLAB-PCS performs analysis using temperature programmed methods such as TPR, TPO and TPD. Pulse chemisorption is also available with the CATLAB-PCS. The integrated QGA mass spectrometer system provides for quantification of the adsorbed/desorbed species. Physical analyses such as metal surface area, catalyst dispersion and surface acidity/basicity are provided.

All CATLAB-PCS and mass spectrometer sampling wetted surfaces are designed to have the widest possible compatibility for use with aggressive species.

Hiden Analytical’s HPR-20 R&D mass spectrometer is available for coupling to existing catalyst reactors with integral analysis software available for TPD/TPR/TPO quantification.

A range of specialized connectors and couplings optimise integration with the reactor vessel.
