PID Microactivity Reactor

Particulate Systems
The PID-Particulate Systems Microreactor, also known as the Microactivity-Reference, is an advanced modular laboratory system for measuring the activity and selectivity of catalysts. The standard platform can be easily adapted to the user’s catalytic testing needs with a variety of configurations and options. The system can accommodate a wide variety of reactions including hydrocracking, hydrotreating, isomerization, hydrogenation, hydrodesulphurization (HDS), oxidation, hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), polymerization, reforming (aromatization), and steam reforming, to name a few.

The Microactivity-Reference is a compact microreactor, completely automated, and equipped with innovative process-control technology. This enables 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. This system has been developed to help save time and resources at both the catalyst development stage and the factory report process during the screening.

Patented control systems have been specifically developed for this equipment providing the ability to operate on a microscale. The Microactivity-Reference performance is like no other system available in the market with microflow rates operating in a wide range from tens of mL/min to liters/min. The instrument operates at analysis pressures ranging from vacuum to 100 bar. Its versatility allows operation within this range without requiring adjustment of the pressure control valve. The reaction temperature can be controlled between ambient and 1000 oC (using special material reactors). The high pressure liquid-gas or liquid-liquid-gas separator is the latest PID advancement in studying catalytic reactions.

The basic unit is comprised of a gas mixer with three mass flow controllers for incoming gases; a stainless-steel, 9-mm reactor; a radiating oven with low thermal inertia capable of reaching 1000 oC; a valve for bypassing the reactor enabling isolation while the feed analysis commences; and a liquid-gas separator. There are several options which are easily added to configure the Micoactivity-Reference reactor to the exact needs of the researcher. These options include additional gas inlets with individual mass flow controllers, a high pressure liquid-liquid-gas separator, additional 6-port valves for changing the direction of the flow or bypassing the separator, and other reactors of different sizes made from different materials to suit the needs of the reaction.
