Mini-Reactor System- High Pressure Pyrolyzer with Catalyst Reactor  

Apr 20 2010 Read 2835 Times

CDS has introduced the first and only micro high-pressure pyrolysis reactor system- The Model 5200HPR . Scientists studying new biomass feed stock, coal, oil or polymer reactions need to understand how these materials break down in a reactor at varying conditions with catalysts. The high-pressure pyrolyzer allows them to study both high temperature & pressure on a small scale while passing the pyrolyzed gas through a catalyst bed. The micro pyrolysis-reactor system will offer the scientist and chemical engineer a time and money saving instrument by increasing their understanding of reaction chemistry before undergoing the expense of a large laboratory or pilot reactor. And in addition, the background gas can be GC carrier gas or a reactant gas such as air, hydrogen or oxygen.

The system uses our field proven model 5200 pyrolyzer which has been modified with a back pressure regulator and heated catalyst bed. Microgram sized samples can be pyrolyzed at elevated pressures (500PSI max) and passed through a catalyst bed of their choice and then collected onto the built-in trap. After pyrolysis of the sample is complete, the analytes are transferred from the trap to a GC at normal operating conditions. Most analysis is completed with any industry standard GCMS system but our pyrolysis-reactor instrument can also connect directly to a mass spectrometer.

Many types of biomass have been successfully analyzed with the 5200 HPR micro reactor including wood, switch grass, plant materials and algae as well as studying coal-to-chemicals and catalysts reactions. For further information please visit our website at or contact our office directly.
