hte equips IFPEN with high throughput technology for naphtha reforming applications

hte – the high throughput experimentation company is proud to announce that IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) has selected hte’s proprietary technology for catalytic naphtha reforming testing applications to speed up catalyst and process development. hte will supply a high throughput reactor system which is highly optimized for constant RON operation under both industrial semi-regenerative and continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) reforming conditions.
   
hte will supply a flexible high throughput reactor system for catalytic naphtha reforming testing applications to IFPEN. The test unit is ideally suited for catalyst and process development purposes. It will be installed at IFPEN’s research center in Solaize, France at the beginning of 2019.

The fully integrated catalyst testing solution is fitted with unique features such as automated parallel adjustment of temperature profiles, operation at a constant research octane number (RON) under both industrial semi-regenerative and continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) reforming conditions, and enhanced online analytics. Furthermore, it includes the latest software solution, myhteTM, for integrating, storing, retrieving, analyzing, and visualizing data.

“After a thorough market evaluation, we selected hte’s technology because of its proven expertise in test units for catalyst and process development. This technology and fully integrated software solution will contribute significantly to reducing the time and costs associated with the development of new processes and new catalysts,” says Denis Guillaume, Director of the Process Experimentation Division at IPFEN. “This unit will supply data for catalyst screening and for process development, providing representative data for industrial scale,” says Cécile Thomazeau, Reforming Project Leader at IFPEN.

Wolfram Stichert, CEO at hte, comments: “We are proud to work with such a renowned research institute. We have invested significantly in the development of this technology over the past years and are happy to see the market acceptance it has received.”
