Periodic Thermal Reactors
Periodic Thermal Reactors for Carbon Materials Purification
The unique TMEC’s heating process allows our customers to treat carbon materials in small quantities (~200 grams) in a Periodic Reactor at temperatures 2000-3000°C under customized atmosphere (Ar, He, N2).
Due to the reactor’s special design, we offer the heating stage featuring an extremely low thermal inertia of the inner space which provides an opportunity to reach a set temperature level in less than 10 minutes. Therefore, the full treatment cycle (loading, heating, treatment, cooling and discharge) can be shorten to 30 minutes. This concept reduces energy losses and makes the technology invaluable for research laboratories.
