In your letter dated May 8, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted descriptive literature with your request.

The article in question is a bench top reaction system, identified as the BTRS Model #BTRS-Jr. This system is a reaction system for vapor phase catalyst evaluation and continuous flow process analysis.
