MICROMERITICS: Surface Characterization
Micromeritics Instrument Corp. recently announced the addition of an optional thermal conductivity detector (TCD) to its 3Flex surface characterization family of products. This new option reportedly extends the ability of scientists to gain greater understanding of catalysts and catalytic behavior to improve product performance and catalytic efficiencies.
The new TCD option reportedly allows the user to perform temperature programmed reduction (TPR), oxidation (TPO), desorption (TPD), and reduction reactions (TPRx). The 3Flex TCD also has an option for pulse chemisorption analyses, which can be performed with manual injections or automatically with the optional injection loop. The TCD option provides the capability to investigate temperature dependence of specific adsorption or desorption process profiles for catalyst and adsorbents, as well as pulse chemisorption. This data being available to the scientist permits greater understating for improvement in final product performance.
“Once again, our customers defined what we needed to do to meet their challenges,” said Stefan Koch, director of engineering. “Micromeritics Instruments is an industry leader because we listen intently and deliver innovative solutions, not just products to help our customers succeed, and the 3Flex TCD option is another example of our committed response to those needs.”
