Flow Reactor (FR) Series for Catalyst Screening

Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-100

Succeeding the Micromeritics Microactivity Effi, this series of Micromeritics Flow Reactors (FR) features highly advanced modular laboratory screening units for measuring the activity and selectivity of catalysts. The Micromeritics FR-50, FR-100 and FR-200 have been developed to help save time and resources during catalyst development and screening.

Each model accommodates a wide variety of reactions including but not limited to hydrocracking, hydrotreating, isomerization, hydrogenation, hydrodesulphurization (HDS), oxidation, hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), reforming (aromatization), GTL (Fischer-Tropsch), and steam reforming. These benchtop reactors are also ideal for research studies on topics such as biofuels, methane activation or sustainable reactions.

Key Features

  • Fully configurable to the user’s catalytic testing needs with a variety of configurations and options
  • Small footprint saves expensive lab space and optionally allows installation within a fume hood
  • Automated routines minimize user errors and reduce test time
  • Equipped with embedded control featuring multiple temperature and pressure sensors for monitoring and controlling reaction studies
  • Expandable for future needs, e.g. detectors or optional accessories (e.g. GC/MS, additional gas and liquid feeds, Liquid Liquid Gas (LLG) separator, others upon request) that protects your investment
  • Integrated safety system can be used in automatic and autonomous mode to protect lab staff and instrument. The safety system ensures that both, the user and the instrument is protected.
  • Pressure control to perform experiments at commercially relevant conditions

Available Configurations

  • Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-50: Compact semi automated catalyst testing unit
  • Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-100: Advanced modular and automated laboratory system for measuring catalytic activity and selectivity
  • Micromeritics Flow Reactor FR-200: A dual-reactor system that may be configured to perform reaction studies in series or parallel
