Applied Catalysts is offering Catalytic Reactor Units for process intensification of Catalytic processes using their proprietary ACMC® activated carbon monolith catalyst technology. These modular turn-key systems offer enhanced productivity, selectivity and lifetime for Hydrogenation and other catalytic chemistries. Chemistry that is not equilibrium limited can be converted in a single pass through the reactor. Production of millions of pounds of product per year can be achieved with Catalytic Reactor Systems based on reactors which are just shell and tube heat exchangers with less than 100 and up to 400 tubes in a reactor and with diameters of 2 to 3 feet. The catalytic inserts are placed in side the tubes of the shell and tube heat exchanger.
Customer chemistry can be implemented based on lab data in batch reactors or flow chemistry. In addition, R.C. Costello & Assoc., Inc. (COSTELLO) has developed an Excel Based Calculation Tool for Applied Catalysts that is supported by ChemCad modeling that can be used for front end engineering of the Catalytic Reactor Units for most catalytic processes. Applied Catalysts and COSTELLO can provide preliminary process schematics and approximate reactor sizes needed based on lab data from customers.
Applied Catalysts can provide testing services to demonstrate customer chemistries and determine process conditions in a new 4 foot jacketed Shell and Tube Reactor, to simulate pilot and commercial scale performance. In a recent development, Applied Catalysts has designed three lab scale test systems with Altamira Instruments, for single reactor, multiple reactor and lifetime testing at the lab scale. ACMC® catalysts and other monolith or particulate catalysts can be provided by Applied Catalysts on a custom basis. A brochure is available by request.
Application of the hydrogenation technology to four commercially relevant substrates was recently published in Organic Process Research and Development. Click here to see this publication.
