Applied Catalysts offers several ACMC (Activated Carbon Monolith Catalysts) products for Chemical Process applications.
Activated Carbon Monolith Catalysts (ACMC®) are monolith catalysts in which the active catalytic metals are supported on activated carbon that is built into the walls of the monolith. The low-pressure drop and high surface area of our ACMC® products will boost production throughputs, activity and selectivity levels. The potential elimination of the catalyst separation step and the long-life expectancy of our unique Catalyst will continue to save you in operational expenses year over year.
ACMC® products can be used in process chemistries from pH 1 to pH 10. Commercial chemistries have been run at 50 psi to 750 psi, and 60 C to 220 C with no evidence of attrition or deactivation.
Typical catalytic metals from both Platinum Group (Pd & Pt) and Base (Ni) as well as other non-metals may also be used. The activated carbon in the monoliths in our standard products are wood-based or coconut based and custom ACMCs® can be made with alternative carbons.
