Magcat: At Magma we design our own catalyst carrier utilising our strength of 40 years’ experience in the Ceramics industry. We do this by utilizing polymer ceramic technology rather than the traditional pressure method. Our catalysts look different, they are spherical with a textured “Golf Ball” like surface. Texturing creates a 30% improvement in external surface area which is proven to increase the heat transfer coefficient, and deliver 3x more available nickel for reaction.
Magcat is designed to improve the heat transfer coefficient, providing high intrinsic strength and lower pressure drop across the process. These properties deliver performance benefits at constant plant rate including lower pressure drop; lower tube skin temperatures; and reduced reforming firing.
Ceramics: Magma Ceramics is a specialist manufacturer of high quality fully fired, dense refractory shapes. Operating from our factories on the Wirral and in Bolton, we have the capability and experience to manufacture and supply high-performance, precision-made products to a wide variety of industries and market sectors.
Combustion: Magma Combustion Engineering has been supporting energy intensive industries across the UK and overseas for many years with servicing and maintenance of thermal process equipment.
Based on knowledge, experience and expertise we provide efficient and effective ways to improve your processes.
P&E: P&E Systems design, manufacture and commission electrical control systems. They specialise in providing control systems for use in hazardous environments. Business areas include Oil & Gas, Industrial Gases, Food, Pharmaceuticals, Chemical, Renewables and Engineering Industries.
UNICAT: Founded in 2000 and located in Alvin, Texas, UNICAT is a leading provider of heterogeneous catalyst products and related services. With over 200 unique catalyst products, UNICAT has consistently provided customers with innovative solutions. In addition to its product portfolio, the company provides on-site technical support to assist customers worldwide.
