Mini-Reactor System- High Pressure Pyrolysis with Catalyst Reactor
Nov 24 2009
CDS Analytical (USA) has introduced the first and only mini highpressure pyrolysis reactor system. 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 pyrolyser allows them to study both high temperature & pressure on a small scale while passing the pyrolysed gas through a catalyst bed. This 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 CDS’ field proven model 5200 pyrolyser which has been modified with a back pressure regulator and heated catalyst bed. Samples can be pyrolysed 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.
