Catalytic Combustion Unveils Tester for Catalyst Activity
Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Catalytic Combustion Corp. (CCC) has announced non-destructive catalytic activity tester for used catalysts named the Activity Value Test System (AVTS).
The company said the tester, which it called the first in the industry, is needed because the loss of catalytic activity - which is difficult to assess - restricts an element's ability to control emissions from stationary industrial engines.
CCC said the patent-pending test process was a response to energy industry customers who want to know if washed catalysts were worth reinstalling or needed to be replaced.
The AVTS technology provides a repeatable set of temperature and flow conditions similar to those a catalyst sees in the field. It gauges the activity level by introducing to the catalyst a standard reference compound found in a gas engine's exhaust.
