Analytical Services

Paltrocess analysis plays an essential role during catalyst testing and process development. Using high throughput methodologies generates large numbers of samples which need to be analyzed, producing vast amounts of data that needs to be evaluated efficiently. This requires long-term expertise and efficient technology.
hte’s analysis team focuses on high throughput analysis, delivering robust and reliable real-time results from online and offline analysis. Our state-of-the art characterization lab offers the characterization of materials by means of XRD, surface area analysis and many others. Regular training and long-term experience allows us to implement the latest technologies and to develop the most up-to-date analytical methods.

We offer:

  • altOnline and Offline Analytical Methods including GC, GC/MS, HPLC, GPC, DSC, IR, MS, SimDis, S/N analytics.
  • Transfer or development of analytical methods
  • State-of-the-art materials characterization lab
  • Robust and reliable real-time results
