SUBJECT: HIGH PRESSURE CHEMISORPTION ANALYZERThis is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Part 13, Simplified Acquisitions, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. QUOTES ARE BEING REQUESTED. Responses shall reference Request for Quotations No. DE-RQ26-08NT000902 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Pittsburgh, PA, intends to purchase the following: High Pressure Chemisorption Analyzer (1 each) Must include the following technical features: Fully automated chemisorption analyzer for temperature programmed, pulse chemisorption and physisorption analyses of dispersed metal catalyst materials Prepare and analyze catalytic samples at pressures up to 70 bar (1000 psia) Capable of Temperature Programmed Desorption (TPD), Temperature Programmed Reduction (TPR), Temperature Programmed Oxidation (TPO), BET surface area and Pulse Chemisorption analyses Three internal mass flow controllers included for precise gas control Internal backpressure controller On-instrument gas blending capability (carrier and loop gases) Independent internal temperature controlled zones Four inlets each for preparation, carrier and loop gas streams (12 total inlets) Gold plated Thermal Conductivity Detector (TCD) filaments Operating software and built-in controller permit PC independent operation and data collection Importation of mass spectrometer signal to reporting system for easy comparison to Temperature Programmed experimental data Peak integration capability integrated into data reduction software Sub-ambient temperature controlled ramping capability using optional cryogenic cooler The furnace has an interlock switch. When the furnace is open, the internal pressure is automatically reduced to atmospheric pressure. It also cuts of power to the furnace In the event of a power failure, all inlet solenoid valves (which admit gases) will close and the internal pressure is automatically reduced to atmospheric pressure No high voltage or high pressure components which are accessible, except by using tools to remove panels PC capable of controlling the instrument 1 Printer 1 Pressure regulators 2 quantity CGA 580, 1500 psig (N2, He, Ar, Kr) 1 quantity CGA 320, 1500 psig (CO2) 1 quantity CGA 540, 1500 psig (O2) 2 quantity CGA 350, 1500 psig (H2, CO) 1 quantity CGA 590, 1500 psig (Air) Cryogenic cooler that p[ermits analyses to be perform from -100 to 1,100 C in a continuous, linear fashion Mass spectrometer: 200 AMU mass spectrometer connects directly to a dedicated port on the instrument for detection and identification of low concentrations of condensable and/or reactive gases Installation and on-site operator training Freight should be included in price. DELIVERY: FOB Destination is required (all freight included). The provisions at 52.212-2 Evaluation Commercial Items (JAN 1999) does not apply to this acquisition. Instead, the following information will be used for evaluation of offerors: An award shall be made to the responsible offeror submitting a technically acceptable quote and offering the best value evaluated price. Evaluation is based on best value including cost and ability to meet stated requirements above. Offerors shall submit descriptive literature and drawings detailing features, technical capabilities and warranty data. Technical acceptability will be determined solely on the content and merit of the information submitted response to this provision as it compares to the minimum characteristics provided above. Therefore, it is essential that offerors provide sufficient technical literature, documentation, etc., in order for the Government evaluation team to make an adequate technical assessment of the quote as meeting technical acceptability. Best value to the government cost shall be the deciding factor among technically acceptable quotes. The North American Industry Classification (NIAC) is 334516. ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHALL SUBMIT OFFERS WITH THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION: Federal Tax Identification (TIN); Dun & Bradstreet Number (DUNS); and remit to address if different. A Firm Fixed Priced Purchase Order shall be issued using the Simplified Acquisition Procedures FAR Part 13. This is a small business set aside.
