Fully automated and unattended 24/7 operation
- Integration with other software platforms e.g., i-historian etc.
- Automated liquid sampling using barcode labeling
- Tracking catalyst samples and liquid feed properties
- Integration of analytical data & feedback control
- Calculation of key performance data like conversion and selectivity
- Stored values can be used to monitor trends in built-in plots
- Alarm management for all relevant process values
Automated operation with predefined recipes
A recipe is a compilation of conditions steps containing set points, ramp rates and reactor sampling, waiting times between GC analyses, etc. In a recipe, an unlimited number of steps with various process conditions can be added. This unique feature allows unattended operation of the unit during a test run.
Every second, all measured values and set points are stored in a SQL database
All online and offline results are automatically imported into the Flowrence® Database and available on a real-time basis. Additionally, when a GC chromatogram is reprocessed (e.g. to assign a different retention time or response factor), the new results will be automatically updated into the database.
The control software will be directly connected to a Microsoft SQL server database where all relevant information of the experiment is automatically stored. This information is stored at a very high detail level of 1 sample per second to allow very accurate trending. This enables real-time follow up of the experiment and determine whether any adjustments need to be made to the process parameters.
The Flowrence® XD is Avantium’s most flexible and easy to use system, with 4-reactors a broad operating window. This system was designed for early-stage catalyst R&D.
The Flowrence® XR is Avantium’s most accurate system, with 16-reactors and a broad operating window. Designed for fast catalyst screening with outstanding repeatability and reproducibility.
The Flowrence® XP as all the advantages of the Flowrence XR with more independent controls per reactor for kinetic studies and process design.
The Flowrence® XC was purposely designed for precise comparison and selection of commercial catalysts.
