Heidelberg/Germany — The business deal between Sinopec and hte was signed in early 2015. It comprises the manufacturing and distribution of three high throughput reactor systems for the accelerated research and development of petroleum refining technology and catalysts. The test units were delivered and installed at Ripp’s laboratory in Beijing, China in 2016. hte was awarded the contract over competitors by presenting outstanding data quality from its parallel reactor systems in a comparative study on hydrocracking.

The advantage of high throughput experimentation is that small-scale testing reduces the amount of feed and catalyst required, while the quality of the data remains excellent and is comparable to pilot plant data, the supplier claims. The analytical suite of the reactors delivered allows a precise quantification of complex feed and product compositions within a very short time, thus reducing time-to-market for new catalyst solutions.

The collaboration with hte started in 2011 when the Chinese Client acquired a high throughput system for the research and development of naphtha reforming catalysts. With their research activities, Sinopec strives to become a world-renowned R&D center in petroleum refining and petrochemical integration fields, says Wang Yamin, Vice President of Sinopecc Ripp.
