Methanation Catalyst

Methanation Catalyst

SYAMCAT methanation catalyst uses a high NiO active component and uses a pressing process to promote the reaction of low-concentration carbon oxides (such as CO, CO2) and excess hydrogen to generate inert gas CH4 and easily removed H2O to purify the gas.

Methanation catalysts manufactured by SYAMCAT possess remarkable high-temperature resistance and tolerance to toxicity. They exhibit a high service life of at least 6 years in large-scale hydrogen and ammonia production facilities. SYAMCAT typically offers its products in an oxidized state, but we can provide pre-reduced catalysts if required by the customers.

Production Process of SYAMCAT Methanation Catalyst

 Precise Catalyst Carrier Selection: Start by choosing γ-Al2O3 as the catalyst carrier material, known for its high surface area and stability.
 Efficient Component Immersion: Immerse the carrier in a solution containing soluble compounds with nickel and other active components, both main and co-catalysts.
 Optimized Contact Time: Allow the carrier to interact with the solution for a defined duration, ensuring proper absorption of active components.
 Thorough Solution Removal: After the immersion period, remove excess solution meticulously to ensure uniform distribution of active components.
 Effective Drying: Subject the impregnated carrier to controlled drying, eliminating moisture and preparing it for subsequent stages.
 Precise Roasting: Roast the dried catalyst material at optimized temperatures to activate the components and stabilize their catalytic properties.
 Activation Process: Execute a specific activation process to enhance the catalyst's reactivity, preparing it for the methanation reaction.

SYAMCAT Methanation Catalyst Solution

During the hydrogen and ammonia production process, carbon-containing feedstock can produce traces of CO and CO2. By utilizing selective methanation, minute amounts of CO in hydrogen-rich gas can be removed without harming electrodes or the environment. The challenge in this method lies in the requirement for the CO methanation catalyst to possess excellent catalytic activity and high selectivity, while avoiding the concurrent methanation reaction of CO2, thus reducing the consumption of H2 in the reactants.

In hydrogen and ammonia production facilities, SYAMCAT methanation catalyst is employed to facilitate the reaction between low-concentration carbon oxides (such as CO and CO2) and excess hydrogen gas, resulting in the formation of inert gas CH4 and easily removable H2O. This process purifies the gas, protecting downstream catalysts.
