Parallel Fischer-Tropsch Reactor System
We needed bespoke fixed bed reactors for Fischer-Tropsch chemistry. It was important that the unit was tailored exactly to our needs and we wanted to see good engineering capabilities and an understanding of the chemistry involved.
The ILS parallel reactor system has dramatically increased our throughput while still being accurate and reproducible. It’s opened up new areas of research and the enhanced internal abilities have helped us to save the money we would have spent externally. We’re now in the loop more with our internal customers.
You should work with ILS. They can build you whatever you want and it will be a very good working relationship.

ILS built a 4-parallel fixed bed Fischer-Tropsch testing unit. The reactors can be run completely independently under unique process conditions with 24/7 operation and online GC analysis. The temperature control system provides true isothermal operation for the highly exothermic Fischer-Tropsch reaction.
