BenchCAT 4000R HP Hybrid

Multi-station Hybrid Reactor and Chemisorption: Chemi-CAT

The BenchCAT 4000R HP Hybrid is a four station automated reactor system designed to:

1. Conduct temperature-programmed or isothermal experiments with catalysts loaded in a straight tube reactor at ambient or pressure conditions. External analysis will be performed with a mass spectrometer.

2. Perform characterization experiments (TPR, TPO, TPD, Pulse Chemisorption) using catalysts at ambient pressures. Analysis will be made internally, using the TCD, or externally with a mass spectrometer, GC, etc....

3. The instrument is configured to perform either reaction experiments or characterization experiments on an automated basis. Reaction and characterization will always be performed as separate experiments.
