Catalysts are the key components for maximizing process efficiency to ensure competitiveness and improved margins. In this study with SIPCHEM you can learn how a commercial catalyst for selective hydrogenation was qualified for industrial use on a 16-fold high throughput test unit. Within two weeks of testing about 256 experiments of different spatial arrangements, temperatures, pressures, feed concentrations have been run with excellent stability within 500 hours-time-on-steam.
