The Micromeritics in-situ Catalyst Characterization System (ICCS) is an advanced catalyst characterization tool that allows the user to study the impact of a reaction on critical parameters such as the number of active sites, under precisely controlled, process-representative conditions.
An affordable and standalone accessory designed to complement any dynamic laboratory reactor system, such as the MicroActivitySystems, the ICCS adds two new capabilities: Temperature Programmed Analyses (TPx) and Pulse Chemisorption.
These well-known and time-tested techniques may now be performed on a fresh catalyst and then repeated on a used catalyst without removing the material from the reactor. This enables a detailed comparison the number of active sites, before and after use. Users obtain both temperature-programmed analyses and pulse chemisorption data for the same aliquot of the sample used for reaction studies. Performing these analyses in-situ virtually eliminates the possibility of contamination from atmospheric gases and moisture which may damage the active catalyst and compromise data integrity.
