Accelerated, Standardized, Digitalized Automated Zeolite and Metallorganic Framework (MOF) Synthesis & Work-up by Precisely Controlled Hydro- and Solvothermal Synthesis


MULTIPLANT / AUTOPLANT ZEO

Robustness and ease-of-use by design - Each reactor with its own set of conditions

The leading technology in overhead gravimetric dispensing / dosing (patented) combined with our quality by design reactor technology and process excellence, and our user-friendly software, allow you to accelerate, standardize and digitalize your porous materials (zeolites, metallorganic framework / MOF) synthesis and work-up workflows.

Key advantages

  • Decrease in cost per experiment up to 90+ %.
  • Increase in productivity by a factor of 10+.
  • Up to 36 experiments per run on an AUTOPLANT, up to 6 experiments per run on a MULTIPLANT.
  • Independent control of all process parameters in each reactor.
  • Independent and precise temperature and stirring control in each reactor.
  • Gravimetric solid and viscous liquid dispensing.
  • 4-Needle Head for volumetric liquid handling and sampling.
  • Liquid and slurry feeds at reaction conditions.
  • Cleaning in place (e.g. automated cleaning, inserts).
  • Dispensed amount, stirrer speed, temperature, pressure, time..., and other data are stored in a read only log file.
  • Easy access to data with a convenient interface to pull results into Excel or
    virtually any other software.
  • Interface to DoE.

Technical details

Chemspeed’s MULTIPLANT / AUTOPLANT ZEO deck modularity allows the user to execute and perform a variety of zeolite synthesis workflows in a fully or semi-automated fashion.

Reaction preparation:

  • Overhead gravimetic addition of solid reagents (e.g. NaOH, silicic acid, amines) directly into the reactor.
  • Continous and batch addition of liquid reagents and solutions (e.g. aluminum sulphate, conc. sulfuric acid, water / alcohol,...).

Hydro- and solvothermal synthesis:

  • Stirring profiles.
  • Defined heating programs.
  • Heatable reactor tops.
  • Pressure (100 bar).
  • Liquid and slurry feed against pressure.

Work-up:

  • Filtration, centrifugation.
  • Washing.
  • Drying.

Post reaction treatment:

  • Calcination.
  • Compaction.
  • Crushing.
  • Sieving.

Analytics:

  • High-throughput XRD.
  • High-throughput Raman.
  • High-throughput BET.

The cutting edge Process Development Workstation Technology allows scientists to truly mimic
the final industrial production process and provides all the flexibility to optimize integrated reaction sequences, even if a complex configuration of reactors and feed vessels required.
