A cornerstone of Norner capabilities is our advanced gas reactor laboratory for polymerization and gas process simulations.
We have a wide range of lab reactors in different sizes.
Our reactor laboratory at Norner is well equipped for high purity work in extreme conditions by using hazardous chemicals.
Gas reactor laboratory for polymerization
The advanced gas transportation and inert handling system (e.g. several glove boxes) together with the explosion (EX) proofed area fulfills our devotion to safety work.
We are constantly updating our reactors according to latest technology.
We can do reactor modifications according to your needs.
Multi purpose reactors available in our laboratory
Glass reactor systems up to 1 liter size (max. 10 bar, 120°C).
Two fluidized bed mixers (0,25 & 60 liters).
Small scale calcination/reduction units for carriers & Cr-catalyst. (fluidised bed; max. ~300 g; max ~1000°C).
Pressure reactors available in our laboratory
High pressure metal reactors, 1 - 17 liter in size:
- Totally 13 reactors available.
- In olefin polymerization, yields up to 5 kg’s (per test) can be produced.
- Pressure up to 350 bar. - Temperature up to 340°C.
