Methanol Synthesis Catalyst

Methanol Synthesis Catalyst

SYAMCAT methanol synthesis catalyst is suitable for methanol synthesis process with coal gas, natural gas, coke oven gas feedstock. 

Formulated with alumina as the catalyst carrier and copper oxide as the active component using a special processing technique, this catalyst has high activity, excellent selectivity, long service life, and good heat resistance. 

It has a broad applicability and is easy to operate due to its ease of reduction. With minimal pressure drop during production operation, it contributes to increasing the methanol plant's capacity.

Production Process of SYAMCAT Methanol Synthesis Catalyst

 Preparation of Active Components: Begin by creating a mixed solution of copper nitrate and zinc nitrate. This solution forms the basis for the catalyst's active components.
 Precipitation with Alkaline Solution: Mix the nitrate solution with an alkaline solution. The chemical reaction that occurs leads to precipitation, forming the core of the catalyst.
 Washing and Drying: After precipitation, carefully wash and dry the formed material to remove impurities and residual solution.
 Addition of Aluminum Hydroxide: Introduce aluminum hydroxide powder to the material. This step enhances the catalyst's properties and stability.
 Grinding and Granulation: Grind the material to ensure a consistent and fine particle size. Follow this by granulation to create manageable particles.
 Drying and Roasting: Thoroughly dry and roast the granulated material. This process is essential for catalyst activation.
 Graphite Mixing: Blend the catalyst with graphite, which further enhances its performance and ensures it retains shape and structure during the synthesis process.
 Final Shaping: Use pressure to mold the catalyst mixture into the desired shape. This step produces the finished methanol synthesis catalyst, ready for use.

SYAMCAT Methanol Synthesis Catalyst Solution

Methanol, a vital organic chemical and fundamental raw material in the chemical industry, plays a crucial role in the new energy strategy. The hydrogenation of CO to synthesize methanol is a widely applied method in methanol production. Whether using the high-temperature and high-pressure techniques from the early days or the low-temperature and low-pressure techniques developed in recent years, the catalyst has always been the key technology in the methanol synthesis process.

SYAMCAT's methanol synthesis catalyst boasts an appropriate physical form, ensuring excellent mechanical strength. It exhibits remarkable selectivity, minimizing side reactions and maximizing methanol production. Additionally, it has a low reduction shrinkage rate, enabling the methanol synthesis unit to fully utilize its production capacity.

FAQs of SYAMCAT Methanol Synthesis Catalyst

Does the methanol synthesis catalyst you produce and supply need to be reduced before using?
Normally, for our customers' more convenient use and operation, we directly supply already reduced (reduction state) methanol synthesis catalysts to our customers. It greatly reduces the cumbersome operations and cost consumption during use. The elevated temperature reduction of catalysts is an important step in methanol synthesis. The success of the reduction has a significant impact on the activity of the catalyst, and is directly related to the production capacity of methanol and the life of the catalyst.
Can you suggest a suitable operating conditions to provide us with a reference?
Theoretically speaking, the larger the reduction space velocity of the catalyst, the better. As the space velocity increases, the number of oxygen removed by the active components per unit time will increase. After reduction, the grains of active copper will be smaller, thereby increasing the surface area and correspondingly improving the activity of the catalyst. Since copper oxide releases 8.79x104J of heat per gram molecule of copper oxide during the reduction of copper catalyst, the high space velocity can bring the heat to the lower layer in time, reducing the temperature difference between the upper and lower layers, avoiding local overheating of the catalyst in the column. It can accelerate the reduction speed and shorten the reduction time , evenly discharge water. However, in actual production operations, the space velocity limit should be determined by the thermal equilibrium conditions. The current space velocity in the methanol factory is generally selected to be 1x104h-1~1.5x104h-1.
