CATACEL SSR tailored catalyst technology

CATACEL SSR technology. Introduction. CATACEL SSRTM is an innovative and industry leading technology that delivers a sharp improvement in the catalyst technology that is available to the operators of steam reforming units. CATACEL SSR technology allows unique and unexpected combinations of heat transfer properties, reactive surface area and pressure drop characteristics within tubular steam reformers. These enhanced catalyst performance parameters can be tailored and targeted for each steam reforming plant such that maximum operational benefit is released for plant operators or for those designing new steam reforming units. This brochure provides a summary of the engineering and chemistry that underpins CATACEL SSR and offers a perspective on the value that is released by this technology.

Metal foils & catalyst coatings
A number of high quality metal alloys possess the combination of properties that allows them to be formed as thin metal foils and used as carriers for catalysts. In particular, metal foils are light, extremely durable, they are good conductors of heat and they can operate efficiently in very high temperature environments. Furthermore, when these foils are subject to carefully controlled thermal treatments the chemistry of the alloys can be altered such that the surface layers of the foils can act as an outstanding base for the attachment of catalytically active coatings. There are a number of constituents of a catalyst coating that are required to ensure that the binding of the coating to the metal foil is robust and durable. However, the preparation of catalysts by the use of coating technology opens up the possibility of using a range of active catalyst components, stabilisation additives and other promoters that are not always feasible in more traditional catalyst systems.
