Catacel Structured Catalysts Impress on the Global Stage

Smiley_115What did FCExpo in Tokyo and Nitrogen+Syngas in Berlin have in common? A focus on more efficient steam methane reforming for the production of hydrogen.
 

Whether for a compact reformer that helps make residential fuel cells affordable without subsidies, or for a huge industrial steam methane reformer (SMR) at an ammonia or methanol plant, there was great interest at both venues in Catacel’s structured catalysts that produce hydrogen syngas at lower temperatures using less fuel.
 

One of the key reasons why Catacel’s metal foil structured catalysts are so interesting is the design range of the foil itself. While “innovations” in pellet catalysts often are in the form of an extra dimple here or hole there, Catacel designs foil catalyst supports into a huge range of geometries that are optimized to impart specific heat exchange, pressure drop, flow management, bypass, surface area, lifetime and reaction management properties in a reformer, catalytic combustor or fuel processor. In fact, no other catalyst support material beats thin metal foil for highly compact, high-performance, heat-exchanging catalytic reaction applications.
 

Catacel is recognized worldwide as a leader in heat exchanging catalyst technology that reduces fuel use, operates more efficiently at lower temperatures, moves heat in and out of reaction beds more effectively and provides years of problem-free service. This is why fuel cell system designers, industrial SMR designers and process plant operators worldwide are evaluating Catacel’s structured catalysts for their applications.
