 BENCHTOP FLAME SPRAY PYROLYSIS (FSP) UNIT

Benchtop Flame Spray Pyrolysis System for Nanoparticle Synthesis
 
FSP process description
Flame Spray Pyrolysis (FSP) is a versatile and cost-efficient production process for nanoparticles. It relies on the combustion of liquid raw materials containing metal or transition metal compounds at temperatures up to 3000°C. Product nanoparticles are formed within milliseconds and collected as a dry powder on a filter. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Product Nanopowders
FSP typically produces highly-crystalline oxide nanopowders but phosphates and pure metals have been synthesized as well. A typical size range for primary particles is 5 to 50 nm depending on the process conditions. These primary particles form larger agglomerates.   
 
Examples of product nanopowders include simple metal oxides like TiO2, Al2O3, ZrO2 as well as complex oxides such as YSZ, CGO, perovskites or spinels. Also, noble metal nanoparticles can be made and deposited onto oxide support particles in the flame. For some compositions, surface-coated or matrix-imbedded nanoparticles can be produced.  
Applications of FSP nanoparticles include:
 
Catalysts
Battery materials
Ceramics
Pigments
Dental and biomedical materials
Gas sensors
Polymer nanocomposites
Electroceramics
 
 
 
Raw materials
The starting materials for FSP are low-cost metal compounds such as carboxylic acid salts, nitrates, or organometallics. These so-called “precursors” are mixed or dissolved in standard organic solvents (e.g. alcohols, aromatics) that provide the energy for the flame synthesis.  
Oxygen is preferably used to disperse the liquid precursor and to complete combustion. A concentric methane-oxygen “supporting” flame ignites the precursor-solvent spray and assures stable combustion. In addition to this, an optional sheath gas (oxygen, air or inert gas) can be employed to envelope the flame and modify the combustion environment.
