How does it work?
The Gas Module™ works seamlessly with the H-Cube® Pro and with the Phoenix Flow Reactor™ to allow different gases to be used up to 100 bar pressure. Reactions, such as carbonylations or oxidations, can be performed at high pressures, widening the reactor’s chemistry ability significantly:
- A gas source, typically a gas cylinder, connected to the Gas Module™ lets out a gas flow that should be in a pressure range between 25 and 140 bar
- The user can select the applicable gas from the list of the Gas Module™ or set the properties of a new gas
- The built-in mass flow controller ensures the accurate dosing of the gas, even at high pressure
Systems compatible with the Gas Module™:
When the Gas Module™ is connected to the H-Cube® Pro, it allows the introduction of other gas than hydrogen, such as carbon monoxide, oxygen or Syngas. The user can choose from 14 gases to be used at up to 100 bar using the touch screen control of the H-Cube® Pro.
Phoenix Flow Reactor™
The Phoenix Flow Reactor™ is a powerful instrument which can be heated up to 450 °C and is compatible with multiple types and sizes of reaction zones (CatCarts®, MidiCarts™, coils, metal-metal sealed catalyst columns). When one or more Gas Modules™ are connected with the Phoenix Flow Reactor™, it is possible to set up a system to perform catalytic gas reactions with one or more gases. For gas-liquid catalytic reactions in the Phoenix Flow Reactor™, the Gas Module™, with the aid of a gas-liquid mixer, introduces the gas into the flowing reactant solution moved by an HPLC pump in the form of a flow of microscopic bubbles.
