Abstract

This disclosure relates to the use of catalyst baskets in parallel heterogeneous catalysis reactor systems. Baskets of less than 6" inner diameter and with a catalyst volume of less than 200 cc are included, but baskets of less than 1" ID and less than 10 cc catalyst volume are preferred.

Catalyst Baskets in High Throughput Parallel Heterogeneous Catalysis Reactor Systems

This disclosure relates to the use of catalyst baskets in parallel heterogeneous catalysis reactor systems.  Baskets of less than 6” inner diameter and with a catalyst volume of less than 200 cc are included, but baskets of less than 1” ID and less than 10 cc catalyst volume are preferred.

Designs included are modifications or small scale reproductions of: Berty Stationary, Harshaw Falling, Mahoney-Robinson Spinning, Robinson-Mahoney Stationary, Carberry Spinning, or Caldwell Stationary Catalyst Baskets.

Large and micro catalyst baskets are currently available for single reactor systems.  The smallest micro baskets are 1” in diameter and hold about 4 cc of catalyst.  However, we are not aware of any system using these catalyst baskets in parallel fashion or of catalyst baskets smaller than the micro versions

ust mentioned.

The chemical kinetics and performance characteristics as well as  stability/deactivation  of a heterogeneous catalyst could be rapidly determined and catalysts ranked using catalyst baskets in a parallel reactor system compared with a single or serial reactor system.

A modified parallel system with about 0.5” OD micro-catalyst baskets each holding about 1 cc of catalyst is proposed for high throughput screening and evaluation of heterogeneous catalysts.
