Chementator: Catalyst screening

By Chemical Engineering |

Lanxess Deutschland GmbH (Leverkusen, Germany; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5826-548) has commissioned a parallel reactor for the screening of catalysts use in hazardous reactions, such as phosgenation and chlorination, which are commonly used to make fine chemicals. Up to now, existing automated screening devices were unable to handle such reactive gases as Cl2 and phosgene, says the firm. The KASPAR system (German acronym for catalyst screening of phosgene reactions with automated reactor system) can perform six simultaneous reactions automatically. Each reaction takes place in a 15-mL volume, compared to the 0.5–1-L volumes normally required for such reactions. As a result, the screening is expected to be safer and consume less chemicals. The company will use the system in its custom-manufacturing business.   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
