CDS has introduced the first and only high-pressure pyrolysis system. Scientists studying new material, such as various biomass feed stock, need to understand how these materials break down in a reactor at varying conditions. The high-pressure pyrolyzer allows them to study both high temperature & pressure on a small scale in the lab before undergoing the time and expense of scaling up to a pilot reactor. And in addition, the background gas can be carrier gas or a reactant gas such as air or oxygen.
The High Pressure Pyrolysis instrument will use the model 5200 which has been modified with a back pressure regulator (BPR) to the trap of the 5200. Samples can then be pyrolyzed at elevated pressures (500PSI max) and collected onto the built-in trap. After pyrolysis of the sample is complete, the analytes can be transferred to the GC at normal operating conditions. Any reactant gas can be used including H2, O2, CH4 or CO in the pyrolysis chamber.
