Project: Catalyst Testing Micro Reactor UnitClient: Poornaprajna Institute of Scientific Research, Bangalore
Texol supplied Catalyst Testing Microreactor Unit to Poornaprajna Institute of Scientific Research, Bangalore in April 2011. As the name indicates, the pilot plant is designed to test the catalyst designed for selective synthesis of p-xylene from toluene and methanol under hydrogen atmosphere.
Max Operating Temperature : 600 Deg C Max Operating Pressure : 5 bar g Reactor Total Capacity : +125 ml Feed Rate of Toluene : 0.01 to 10 ml/min Feed Rate of Methanol : 0.01 to 10 ml/min Hydrogen Flow Rate : 0 to 500 ml/min
The unit is totally operated and controlled using PC-PLC based control system.
