• Precipitation

Facing challenges like

You certainly face challenges in manual catalyst preparation by impregnation like:
• Lack in quality and reproducibility
• Lack in systematic diversity for optimization & innovation
• Increasing constraints by environmental impacts and corresponding regulations

Standardized and accelerated catalyst preparation by versatile automated impregnation:
• Incipient wetness

Global Petrochemical Research Institute:
We used to take 3 to 5 years to transfer a new catalyst to business, now we do so in one year! So basically every year one new catalyst.“
"...more than 20 different impregnation methods have been successfully implemented..."

 

Reactor arrays
Platform

• Fully automated, integrated impregnation solution preparation, impregnation, washing, drying.
• Throughput, up to 48 parallel impregnations per run based on e.g. 20 mL glass or quartz vials.
• Integrated liquid handling and sampling. 
• Ventilated hood for safety and conditioned operation, trolley.
• Optimized footprint (3x3 ft, 90x90 cm) versus capacity... all while reducing coats / maximising return on investment.

AUTOSUITE software

• User friendly software allows easy workflow oriented programming. Many features such as gravimetric dispensing are automatically calibrated, eliminating tedious optimization steps.
• Template driven drag & drop experimentation with auto-adjustment of dispensing tasks.
•Easy integration with virtually any LIMS or ELN software.
• AutoSuite Application Programming Interface (API) for 3rd party software and hardware integration.
