Production Process of SYAMCAT Primary Steam Reforming Catalyst

 Active Component Preparation: Nickel nitrate, the active component compound, is precisely prepared for optimal effectiveness. 
 Catalyst Carrier and Additive Incorporation: Al₂O₃, serving as the carrier, is mixed with suitable additives to enhance performance.
 Co-precipitation: The raw materials are combined with an acidic solution, initiating co-precipitation reaction and aging to form the catalyst base.
 Washing and Drying: After the reaction, the precipitate is thoroughly washed, dried, dehydrated, and decomposed for stability.
 Grinding and Sieving: The resulting catalyst material is ball-milled to achieve a fine consistency, passing through a 120-mesh sieve at a 90% rate.
 Homogeneous Mixing and Pelletization: The grinding material is moistened, ensuring homogeneity, and then pelletized for consistent form.
 Compression molding: The pellets are pressed into the desired shape, optimizing the catalyst's efficiency and readiness for application.

SYAMCAT Primary Steam Reforming Catalyst Solution

The stable performance of the primary reforming catalyst is the basic requirement for the supplier of the synthetic ammonia plant. It is an important factor in the service life of the catalyst, and it is also a part that SYAMCAT pays special attention to.

Therefore, we strictly control the performance of the catalyst from the preparation process of primary reformer catalyst.

Paying attention to the order of adding the catalyst components has a certain influence on the carbon deposition performance of the catalyst; Choosing a more suitable preparation method has a great impact on the dispersion of catalyst active components; Adding suitable catalyst additives will make the catalyst own stable activity; Increasing the surface alkalinity of the carrier will enhance the ability of the catalyst surface to absorb water vapor and CO2; Paying attention to the choice of shape will affect the activity, strength, resistance and heat transfer performance of the primary reforming catalyst.

FAQs of SYAMCAT Primary Steam Reforming Catalyst

What are the industries in which primary steam reforming catalyst are used?
The catalyst is suitable for the reaction of hydrocarbons with water to H₂, CO, CO in the reforming section of ammonia, methanol or hydrogen plants made from different raw materials, such as natural gas, coke oven gas, refinery gas, naphtha, associated gas from oil fields, etc. The catalyst is also suitable for the reaction of ammonia cracking to hydrogen plant. It is also suitable for ammonia cracking to hydrogen plant.
Does the shape of the primary steam reforming catalyst have an effect on the performance?
Vapour reforming of natural gas on the catalyst surface at high temperatures is very fast, the reaction process is controlled by internal diffusion, and the apparent activity increases significantly with increasing catalyst geometry. The apparent activity of the small particle size catalyst increases due to the increased geometric surface and improved heat transfer in the tube, but its resistance also increases. The shape also affects the activity, strength, resistance and heat transfer properties of the catalysts. SYAMCAT's primary reforming catalyst is a four-hole convex cylindrical honeycomb type, which is characterised by a large outer surface, high void fraction, reduced resistance and uniform airflow distribution.
Do you handle nickel based catalysts?
Our nickel based catalysts are meticulously designed to meet the demands of diverse industrial processes. Whether you require catalysts for hydrogenation, hydrogen production, or environmental applications in coking furnaces, SYAMCAT has you covered. With a focus on efficiency and sustainability, our catalysts deliver optimal performance, ensuring smooth operations and minimizing environmental impact.

How often should the performance of steam reforming nickel catalysts be monitored?
Regular monitoring of steam reforming nickel catalysts is crucial for optimal performance. It should be done periodically, ranging from weekly to monthly intervals, depending on operating conditions and catalyst lifespan. Monitoring helps detect deviations from expected performance, allowing timely adjustments to maintain efficiency. It also identifies issues like catalyst degradation or fouling, optimizing usage and minimizing downtime.
