Zeolite catalyst structural analysis and testing.
Zeolite catalyst testing and analysis is provided by x-ray and electron diffraction and electron microscopy methods, plus extensive in-house expertise. Intertek provides detailed structural analysis of zeolite systems, including quantitative analysis of faulting and its effect on pore connectivity. Intertek catalyst scientists capture the zeolite lattice image and corresponding diffraction pattern of a faulted crystal.
Zeolites are used as catalysts in the petrochemical industry. Zeolites facilitate acid-catalyzed reactions, including alkylation, cracking and isomerisation and are used for fluid catalytic cracking and hydro-cracking.
