The MRU-Multi Reactor catalyst Testing unit allows to cover a wide range of applications like kinetic studies, process evaluation, process modelization, stability tests of catalysts or adsorbents … Due to its modular design based from 2 to 4 reaction section in series or in parallel, this equipment fits exactly with catalyst screening purposes and allows to get a large amount of data. Almost all catalytic processes regarding crude oil refining (dehydrogenation, hydrogenation, hydrocracking, hydrotreatment, hydroformulation, oxidative decomposition, partial oxidation, isomerization …) can be extensively evaluated with MRT. 
The MRT respects very high level standards in terms of reliability, reproducibility, flexibility and safety. These units are particularly relevant for an extended range of catalytic reactions (heterogeneous or homogenous) occurring at conditions up to 550°C and 200 bars, both in gas or liquid phases and allow collecting industrially relevant and reliable data on catalyst performances, mainly: activity, selectivity to desired products, stability, response to inhibitors, response to poisons, effect of activation (reduction, sulfidation).
The MRU is built with several reaction lines (2 to 4 in series or in parallel), each one including a gas feed section (HP H2 and LP N2 ), liquid feed section up to (2 tanks, 1 pump). Each reactor is provided with a reaction sectio, liquid / gas separation section and product recovery section. The equipment is fully automatic in order to operate the unit in a continuous mode.  The supervision software offers a user-friendly interface in order to control and monitor safely all process parameters. A large range of options from air booster, heat tracing, inter reactor, sampling, nitrogen stripping, liquid product sampling, gas recycle module, liquid recycle module, configuration bypass and automatic mass balances are available in order to customized equipment.
