Automated Catalyst Characterization System (TPD/ TPR/ TPO Analyzer) Micromeritics Instrument AutoChem II ® 2920

Basic Information

Name: Automated Catalyst Characterization System (TPD/ TPR/ TPO Analyzer)
Manufacturer: Micromeritics Instrument
Model: AutoChem II ® 2920
Facility: Porous Ceramics and Filter Ceramics
Partner: Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS)


"The AutoChem II 2920 is a fully automated chemisorption analyzer that can provide your laboratory with the ability to conduct a comprehensive array of highly precise studies of chemical adsorption and temperature-programmed reactions. With this single instrument, you can acquire valuable information about the physical properties of your catalyst, catalyst support, or other materials. It can determine catalytic properties such as percent of metal dispersion, active metal surface area, acid strength, surface acidity, distribution of strength of active sites, BET surface area, and more. The AutoChem II 2920 performs pulse chemisorption, temperature-programmed reduction (TPR), desorption (TPD), oxidation (TPO), and reaction analyses and does it automatically."
