TSR (temperature scanning reactor) enables fast kinetic investigations that include the investigation of the temperature (for both PFR and CSTR).
In TSR the input flow and temperature are ramped in a prescribed way, and the results are interpreted using algorithms based on fundamental equations for the mass and heat balances, and are patented by SE Reactors. The use is illustrated using a MeOH reforming case study and a CO-oxidation case study.
Main conclusion is that TSR gives a very large number of “filtered” reaction rates, in a very short time. As a consequence, data are easier and cheaper to acquire. Limitations of the method is the requirement of uniform effectiveness in the whole reactor, absence of catalyst deactivation and slow changes of the catalyst texture and surface due to changing conditions.
