the reference in modular catalitic
The Microactivity-Reference reactor (ES2245238 - WO2006/008328 - EP1757930 - US2008/063565 - PCT/ES2005/070079) is probably the most advanced worldwide modular laboratory system for measurement of catalytic activity and for the study of the yield and kinetics on chemical reactions. PID Eng&Tech, is a worldwide leading company at sector of Microreactors for Catalytic studies.
This instrument has been developed as a standard unit that can be adapted to whatever performance is needed for catalytic testing through different configurations and options.
The Microactivity-Reference is a compact reactor that is completely automated. It is equipped with cutting-edge process control technology in the market. This enables the user to program a series of experiments from the computer, even on the network, and obtain real-time results with the highest degree of reproducibility and accuracy.
This equipment has been designed to save time and resources at both, catalyst development stage and factory report process during catalyst screening.
Originally designed by and for researchers at Instituto de
Catálisis y Petroleoquímica
of CSIC, Spain, incorporating 20 years of continuous feedback from the
most prestigious Laboratory Researchers, the Microactivity-Reference
has become an international reference with more than 170 units
worldwide studying all types of catalytic reactions. It is backed by
its reliability, versatility, operating simplicity and minimal
The patented control systems have been specifically developed for this equipment. They account for operating at the microscale.
There are no systems with similar characteristics in the market for working with microflows.
Microactivity-Reference is a universal piece of equipment that
provides great versatility. It operates with flows that range from tens
of ml/min to even liters/min, and pressures ranging vacuum to 100 bar
(with the same pressure control valve). The reaction temperature ranges
from room temperature to 1000ºC (using special
The equipments of PID Eng & Tech are certified according to European Directives PED97/23/EC (pressure equipment), 2004/108/EC (EMC-Electromagnetic Compatibility) and 2006/95/EC (LVD-Electrical Safety).
