Rapidly Evaluate Catalysts & Optimize Reaction Conditions

With the HEL CAT 7, CAT 18, CAT 24, PluCAT, DigiCAT products for Rapidly Evaluate Catalysts & Optimize Reaction Conditions

One challenge faced by researchers in catalyst development is the need to quickly evaluate different catalysts and optimise reaction conditions. However, accessing affordable, high pressure, high temperature screening devices is equally challenging. The HEL CAT blocks: |Provide an affordable, entry level range of catalyst research tools. |Are available in 7, 18 or 24 vial configurations the CAT blocks allow primary catalyst screening and basic process optimisation at relatively low cost. |Can be used with conventional hotplate stirrers and all gas and pressure fittings are preinstalled. |Are widely used successfully at many Universities both as research and teaching tools. |Allows to undertake rapid parallel catalysis and thereby facilitate quicker downstream analysis.… Continue Reading

Solubility (and MSZW) Determination

A successful industrial crystallisation requires the development of a robust process in the laboratory. Knowledge of the solubility curve and the stability of the solution in the vicinity of the equilibrium point, as indicated by the metastable zone width (MSZW), are essential to the successful development, optimisation and scale-up of a crystallization process. HEL has developed a highly sensitive turbidity-based probe to determine both the solubility and recrystallization temperatures automatically. This technology can be supplied either as a stand-alone probe (CrystalEYES) to be used with samples and vessels supplied by the user or else integrated into a multi-sample parallel tool (CrystalSCAN). The CrystalSCAN can automatically conduct 8 different experiments simultaneously.… Continue Reading
