We have recently completed studies using X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) on the B18 beamline provided by the Diamond Light Source Facility. Here we spent an exciting 24 hours taking in-situ measurements to understand the behaviour the catalyst.

By analysing the X-ray signal we were able to determine the changes in chemical form of the active species of our customers’ catalyst over a range of temperatures at which the catalyst would normally operate.

For more information on this particular case study and how we may be able to help you with a similar problem please see the case study.

Tubular reactors (incorrectly, “plug flow”) – the simplest continuous reactors. See Daniel Lambden’s overview of the tubular reactors.

Stainless steel 316L is good in corrosive environments but halogens corrode it quickly. Nickel-based Hastelloy C 276 is much more stable.
