Catalyst synthesis and development - Norner

Catalyst synthesis

PE and PP polymerisation catalysts

  • Synthesis and optimisation of ZN, Single Site and Chromium catalysts
  • Catalyst heterogenisation on inorganic/polymeric carriers
  • Good know-how on catalyst scale-up from laboratory to industrial scale (from grams to 100 kg’s)

Inert handling

  • In our laboratories we are working under strictly inert conditions; e.g. O2 level <0,1 ppm
  • We have long experience on handling gases and liquids inertly under high pressure and temperature (flammable, corrosive and reactive chemicals - hydrocarbons, aluminoxanes, metal alkyls & halides)
  • Several glove boxes available (under nitrogen; argon etc. also possible)
  • Welded lines for transportation of chemicals to reactors
  • Advanced purification systems for the raw materials

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)

Reactor modifications are made according to need.

For more reactors, see reactors and equipments.

Following analytical methods are available in Norner to study e.g. particle morphology and chemical distribution in the particles

  • Light microscopy (also hot stage)
  • Malvern Particle Size (PSD)
  • FTIR (also microscopy-FTIR)

For more analytical methods, read about our testing services.
