The dynaSorb BT™ series provides unique capabilities to investigate arbitrarily complex dynamic sorption processes in a uniquely safe and easy-to-use bench-top instrument. Technical adsorbents such as zeolites, active carbons, silica gels, etc. can be investigated under authentic process conditions in a broad temperature (-20 °C to 400 °C) and pressure (up to 10 bar) range, with adjustable gas flow rates up to 40 L/min and well-defined gas compositions.
The stainless-steel adsorber can accommodate large sample amounts (up to 100 ml) to simulate an authentic fixed bed adsorber with realistic gas flow conditions. Four temperature sensors along the adsorber axis monitor the release, consumption and propagation of heat due to adsorption/desorption of gas molecules. The direction of gas flow through the adsorber can be switched between up- and down-stream to investigate bed regeneration and adsorption-desorption cycles. Sample preparation can be done in-situ in inert gas flux and temperatures up to 400 °C. Tempering of the inlet gas and the adsorber allows for uncompromised temperature control throughout the measurement. High precision mass flow controllers are used for quick and stable gas mixing and flow rate control. The adsorber pressure can be regulated up to 10 bar.
The user-friendly control software dynaWin provides real-time control and programmable operation of all system functions, such as:
The status of all sensors and valves, the path and direction of gas flow and all relevant system information for safe and convenient operation can be viewed at a glance on the controlling PC. The simulation software dynaSim provides sophisticated data reduction and simulation capabilities, such as:
Profound technical calculations or basic research, dynaSim accommodates it all, making it a powerful tool for, both, industry and academia.
