HEL’s extensive range of equipment for screening catalysts and developing catalytic processes is being upgraded to enable operation at more severe conditions of pressure and temperature. This includes the marques parallel batch (HP chemscan) and continuous flow reactor system (flowCAT), both of which can now be run up to 200bar. The FlowCAT however, has now been designed to accommodate temperatures of more than 500 °C.
The main appeal of HEL’s equipment is the ease of use, good use of laboratory space and high quality data. In addition to the strong client base,in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, HEL now has a growing client list in petrochemical and refining, including more users in the Middle East and among large national oil companies, reaching as far as China.
