New Development of Accu® sphere Product with Small Particle Size and Large Submicron Pore Size

To support the growing demand for Accu® sphere catalyst carriers, Saint-Gobain NorPro continues to invest in innovation to identify the optimum solution for our customers. We are pleased to announce a new development with our proprietary Accu® sphere technology to produce alumina Accu® sphere products as small as 0.3 mm, with a median pore size of 0.5-0.7 µm and a total pore volume up to 0.65 cc/g. The BET surface area is typically less than 4 m2/g.

This new development focuses on the lower end of Accu® sphere size range, maximizing pore volume and median pore size while retaining Accu® sphere’s characteristic low span of size (≤15%) and excellent control of average particle size.
