From Monolithic Catalysts
Applied Catalysts manufactures a wide variety of ABATE VOC ceramic monolith supported catalysts. Monolithic catalyst supports are honeycomb structures with many small “cells”, or parallel channels that allow exhaust gases to run axially through the catalyst. Monoliths are sometimes called “flow-through” substrates. Exhaust gases flowing through the cells contact the catalyst surface which has been coated onto the cell walls. The major advantages of monolithic supports include high geometric surface area (GSA) per unit volume (small compact design for a catalytic oxidizer), large open frontal area (low pressure drop), and excellent attrition resistance (robust design).
A major advantage of Applied Catalysts is that we obtain the majority of our ceramic supports in house, via Applied Ceramics Inc. (www.appliedceramics.com). The VersaGrid ceramic monoliths are manufactured in a wide variety of cell densities or geometries, including but not limited to 16, 25, 50, 64, 100, 200, 230, and 400 cpsi (cells per square inch), so Applied Catalysts can design your catalyst to meet your specific needs.
Depending on your application, Applied Catalysts can also use Metal Monolith Supports for your catalyst needs.
