IMM Reactor passes 35,000 hour milestone
A reactor developed by the Energy Technology and Catalysis Department and installed at CRI Catalyst Company Leuna GmbH, located in Saxony-Anhalt in Eastern Germany, has recently passed its 35000 hour operating milestone. The reactor was implemented for the purposes of a laboratory exhaust cleaning application. The reactor is based on IMM’s integrated catalytic reactor/heat exchanger concept. The enhanced heat and mass transfer that is achieved together with the ease of system integration leads to highly intensified systems. Here, 2.1 kW of heat is generated in an oxidation process which is then removed by cooling air. According to Klaus Hoheisel from CRI “We are very pleased with the performance of the reactor and shall continue using IMM reactors”.
IMM is a worldwide operating service company for research and development in microtechnology and is specialised in the development of customised solutions. In particular, the Energy Technology and Catalyst Department is focused on the development of fully integrated systems for decentralised energy generation with a view to early market implementation.
