Summary

The field of catalytic processes requires ceramic supports with rigorous properties and a wide variety of forms, this implies the generation of new materials with geometrically specific forms. In this work an arrangement formed by the coaxial ensemble of two ceramic monoliths of honey comb type is presented. The central part, is occupied by a multichanel tube of 12 mm diameter and mesh density of 200 meshes per square inch, the exterior part, is formed by another ceramic monolith constituted of two concentric tubes; both are united by a lattice of 100 meshes per square inch. The internal and external diameter are 13.5 and 24 mm respectively. Those monoliths were made of high purity α-alumina through the extrusion technique. The final open porosity is of 43 % with an average pore size of 15 μm. Here also we discuss the textural results (BET) and the microstructure analysis made by optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electronic microscopy (SEM)
