The CCR1000 stage from Linkam has been designed to study catalytic reactions at high temperature and pressure. Samples are mounted on a virtually unreactive disposable ceramic fabric filters placed inside the ceramic heating element which is capable of heating samples from ambient to 1000°C at rates of up to an incredible 200°C/min.
Highly corrosive gases can be used and even highly conductive gases such as Helium with little compromise on heating performance. A variety of different lid window materials are available so that brightfield and Raman microscopy techniques can be used.
Fluidized Bed for CCR1000
In collaboration with Dr. Pablo Beato at Haldor Topsoe in Denmark, we have recently developed a new technology to homogeneously fluidize particles inside our CCR1000 micro-reactor and conduct heterogeneous catalytic reactions with it, such that they can be monitored by operando Raman spectroscopy, without the drawback of laser heating or damage.
This short video shows the movement of the particles.
