CATLAB-PCS Microreactor - MS for Catalysis Studies from Hiden Analytical

Catalyst characterisation, kinetic and thermodynamic measurements

The Hiden CATLAB is a bench-top microreactor and combined mass spectrometer system for rapid and reproducible catalyst characterisation and reaction studies. The microreactor and mass spectrometer are delivered as a complete system from a single manufacturer, unique to the industry, ensuring optimum analysis via seamless hardware and software integration.

The modular design further allows both instruments to operate as stand-alone components so they may be interfaced with existing laboratory equipment such as TGAs or TCDs.

The Hiden CATLAB delivers a range of completely automated, dynamic, temperature programmed, pulse chemisorption and isothermal techniques. Recipe driven CATLAB software provides automatic control of gas composition and delivery, temperature ramp and set-point as well as full mass spectrometer parameter controls - a true first for the catalyst researcher. The standard system has 0-200 amu capability with options extending this to 1000 amu.

The Hiden CATLAB is a catalyst characterisation system designed to make the analysis of catalysts rapid and simple.

Features of the Hiden CATLAB include:

  • Pulse Chemisorption
  • TPD, TPO, TPR, TP-Reaction
  • Catalyst Screening
  • On-Line continuous product analysis
  • Metal Surface Area
  • Active Surface Area
  • Reaction Kinetics
  • Mechanisms of Surface Reactions
  • Heats of Adsorption
