Semi automated Chemisorption

Product Category: Chemisorption

Industry: Mining and materials, Particle and surface science

Supplier: Quantachrome



is a semi-automated analyzer designed to perform comprehensive catalyst studies by these techniques:

  • Temperature Programmed Reduction
  • Temperature Programmed Desorption
  • Temperature Programmed Oxidation
  • Pulse Titration
  • Physisorption for B.E.T. Surface Area and Pore Volumex

TPD Data Screen

The resulting data are used to:

  • Confirm or predict catalyst activity
  • Determine optimal catalyst preparation conditions for industrial use
  • Measure efficiency of regeneration of used catalysts
  • Quickly screen experimental catalysts
  • Calculate activation energies for a given reaction
  • Determine relative acid strengths


Sample stations: TWO (one analysis + one preparation)
Gas titration loop: Manual operation with Interchangeable loop volumes: 50, 100 and 200µL
Gas inputs: FIVE: 4-way automatic gas select manifold plus calibration/titration gas.
Sample cells: Quartz U-tube for high temperature chemisorption.
Quartz or borosilicate conventional cell for physisorption (B.E.T. surface area)
Cell-bypass valve: YES
Trap: YES (Between cell and detector - to remove unwanted gases)
Connections for mass spectrometer: YES (After sample at cell. After trap - before detector. After detector.)
