Abstract The batch adsorber technique developed in an earlier paper [6] has been applied for the determination of bidisperse tortuosity factors in a typical reforming catalyst support. For a typical extrudate, experiments showed that due to the low resistance to diffusion in the micropores relative to that in the macropores, the uptake is generally controlled by the macropore transport properties. For small diameter particles (< 100μ m) micropore properties effect the transient uptake behaviours, but are not experimentally determinable due to the short uptake time involved (< 1 sec). In summary, the batch adsorber proves to be the most robust, simple technique for evaluation of macropore diffusion properties.
