A system for catalyst characterisation, kinetic and thermodynamic measurements
Hiden Analytical is an industry-leading supplier of microreactors and mass spectrometer systems for complex areas of research, including catalyst characterization, screening, and reaction studies. With rapid responses for kinetic and thermodynamic measurements at temperatures of up to 1000°C (1832°F), Hiden’s modular microreactor and mass spectrometer systems are a unique solution for analytical challenges specific to the industry.
The CATLAB is a modular system designed as a complete solution from a single manufacturer, providing optimal analysis through seamless hardware-software integration. Using a low thermal mass furnace with built-in air cooling, the CATLAB microreactor can reach maximum temperatures with a heating ramp range of 1-20°C/min. An in-bed (type K) thermocouple can then provide direct sample measurement with an accuracy of within a single degree, offering ultra-precise thermodynamic insights for reaction studies and catalysis. Yet this is only one half of the modular system.
Using a quartz inlet capillary (QIC) species probe, the dedicated quadrupole mass spectrometer system acquires data from multiple species in real time. An application specific software package is included for automated control of MS data acquisition fully integrated with all the on-board devices including MFCs, furnace temperature, switching valves, and pulse injection. This combination allows for mutual kinetic and thermodynamic observation with the real-time acquisition of data for subsequent digital analysis.
