Multi Reactor MR Series

Multi Reactor (MR) Series for the Laboratory

Fully automated and computer-controlled catalyst evaluation units

The Micromeritics Multi Reactor series features highly productive evaluation units for the laboratory that enable scientists to comprehensively measure the activity and selectivity of catalysts for screening and kinetic studies.

The MR series configurations include 4 or 8 independent, parallel catalyst lab reactors that are fully automated, and computer controlled. MR models with additional reactors are available on request.

The series’ versatility allows determining optimal experimental conditions and detecting operational challenges. Furthermore, it allows the comparison of catalysts under the same reaction conditions.

Due to the series’ precise temperature-control and feeding system, reaction and regeneration can be carried in-situ and at consecutives stages.

Key Features

  • Fully automated modular system optimized for catalyst screening and providing reliable test studies
  • Configurable to individual application needs ensures a high level of flexibility
  • Flow reactor design accommodates both, extrudates and powders
  • Inert reactor chamber made of quartz to avoid undesirable side-reactions
  • Gas and optional liquids feeding systems allow the MR-4 and MR-8 to be used for a wide range of applications
  • User-friendly software for defining experimental studies and continuous monitoring of the system
  • Easily integrated with a range of analytics including chromatography and spectroscopy

Available Configurations

  • Micromeritics Multi Reactor MR-4 and MR-8: Fully automated, computer-controlled catalyst evaluation unit with 4 or 8 micro reactors for highly flexible screening studies
  • Additional configurations are available on request: The number of reactors can be customized to your catalyst screening studies along with independent individual reactor control for kinetic studies and process design.
