Parallel Autoclave System

The parallel autoclave system enables us to operate up to four stainless steel and two Hastelloy-C pressure autoclaves simultaneously, each with a volume of 75 mL. The reactors are divided into two fume cupboards with three reactors each, steered by a process control system. Each fume cupboard has its own gas distribution with six possible process gases. This system is ideally suited for carrying out extensive parameter screenings in the field of homogeneous catalyst research at temperatures of up to 250 °C and pressures of up to 100 bar. Gas consumption at constant pressure can be monitored by mass-flow controller, as well as by gas burette. Also liquid samples of the reaction mixture can be withdrawn for further analysis, which make the system ideally suited for kinetic studies.

We would like to thank the German Research Foundation (DFG) for financial support of this core component of our equipment.

We are happy to enable other research groups to use the facility in order to optimize its utilization. If you are interested, please contact Prof Vogt.
