Pyrolysis and Combustion Analysis requires very fast, stable chemical analysis of the combustion process or exhaust stream. pyrolysis gives researchers a better grasp of what chemistry is taking place. Critical to the process is the use of a gas analysis system with high sensitivity and high resolution, to accurately monitor a wide range of applications while maintaining a small dead time between sample runs. One of the hot beds of pyrolysis research is fuel analysis. Two branches, jet fuels and biofuels, embody the challenges associated with pyrolysis. For in-depth analysis of biofuel sources, the VeraSpec MBx is the go-to choice for handling the difficulties of pyrolysis and combustion analysis.
The VeraSpec MBx is the flagship instrument for the analysis of pyrolytic byproducts in the search for new biofuel sources. Our biofuel analysis solution includes the MAX300-LG™ Laboratory Gas Analyzer and MAX300-BIO™ Bioreactor Gas Analyzer System, capable of sampling from multiple points along an atmospheric pressure exhaust stream. The VeraSpec MBx has been the proven solution for pyrolytic by-product analysis by customers such as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of Georgia’s Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC).
