catalyst research, micro-reactor, pilot plant, gas feed control, liquid feed control

Are you working on catalyst research in a micro-reactor or challenged with scaling up from the laboratory to pilot plant to full-scale production? Brooks Instrument offers a combination of gas and liquid flow measurement and control technologies to address process control for a broad range of chemical and petrochemical applications.

Examples of applications:

  • Catalyst research
  • Critical gas feeds
  • Precision gas and liquid feed control from pilot plant to production
  • Research and development

Mass Flow Controllers Generate Accurate Data for Mass-balance Calculations in Pilot Plants

Petrochemicals produced from natural gas or liquid hydrocarbon feedstocks provide the building blocks used in the production of plastics, resins, fibers, solvents, detergents, adhesives and other products. The research for these feedstocks and end products starts as an idea and goes through a development cycle that often includes micro-reactor, lab reactor and pilot plant before going to full scale production. 

A pilot plant in the chemical/petrochemical industry is a small-scale simulation of manufacturing operations where results determine the most suitable process and the best equipment for scale up. A pilot plant reduces the technical and commercial risk associated with large process plants by providing valuable preliminary scientific data about reactions, material properties, process yields and more.
