High temperature catalysis

Transient behavior of partial oxidation monoliths (DETCHEM MONOLITH)

Light-off of an extruded monolith coated with rhodium as used for partial oxidation of methane to synthesis gas. A cold methane/oxygen/nitrogen mixture flows from left into the preheated cold monolith. The figures reveal the calculated temperature distribution of the monolith and the methane, hydrogen, and water concentrations within three single monolith channels after 2 and 120 seconds of reactor operation.

Simulation of the thermal behavior of a three-way catalyst during a driving test (DETCHEM MONOLITH)

Light-off of an extruded monolith coated with rhodium as used for partial oxidation of methane to synthesis gas. A cold methane/oxygen/nitrogen mixture flows from left into the preheated cold monolith. The figures reveal the calculated temperature distribution of the monolith and the methane, hydrogen, and water concentrations within three single monolith channels after 2 and 120 seconds of reactor operation.

Catalytic Combustion

Catalytic radiant burner with energy recuperation (DC4FLUENT)

Cold methane/air mixture flows into the burner that is coated on the inner side of the upper fecralloy plate with platinum catalyst. The mixture catalytically burns at the catalyst heating up the plate. The thermal radiation at the exteriour side of the plate can be used for heating and drying.
