Features

Simple: get your own CatCarts in two steps

Safe: the CatCart Packer is equipped with a water trap and a filter to catch any waste catalyst, preventing it from dispersing in the laboratory environment or catch on fire if it is pyrophoric.

How does it work?

The system is made up of 3 main components:

  • The Vacuum System
  • The Mechanical Press
  • The CatCart Filter and Sealing System

The vacuum system holds the empty CatCart in place while suction is applied at the bottom end of it to draw catalyst into the cartridge. With the help of the Hoover Nozzle, the user can easily remove any excess of catalyst. Once the right amount of catalyst is put inside the CatCart, should be sealed with the CatCart Filter Sealing System using the Mechanical Press.

CatCart Filter and Sealing System

The CatCart Filter and Sealing System is made up of the following components:

  1. A Teflon o-ring
  2. A stainless steel filter
  3. A Teflon filter
  4. A stainless steel filter
  5. A Teflon sealing ring

30×4 CatCart® or 70×4 CatCart® with one end sealed with 8 µm filter (empty) – The cartridge is sealed at one end, allowing the user to fill the cartridge with catalyst or reagent
