There are three main causes of hydrocarbon reforming catalyst deactivation: (a) sintering, mainly produced by the surface mobility of active metals at high operating temperatures; (b) sulphur poisoning: organic sulphur contained in fossil fuels, under reforming conditions, is converted to S 2− which reacts with active metals at the catalyst by: Steam reforming catalysts: An investigation of catalysts for tubular steam reforming of hydrocarbons: a contribution from the Research Laboratory of Haldor Topsøe A/S [Rostrup-Nielsen, Jens R] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

The catalyst has been tested for the steam reforming of various hydrocarbons such as natural gas, iso-octane, retail gasoline, and hexadecane.

A h continuous test has shown that the catalyst. Steam reforming or steam methane reforming is a chemical synthesis for producing syngas (hydrogen and carbon monoxide) from hydrocarbons such as natural gas.

This is achieved in a reformer which reacts steam at high temperature and pressure with methane in the presence of a nickel catalyst. The steam reforming of ethane and propane over nickel/magnesia catalysts was much less affected by coke formation over longer times-on-line. The effects of variation in the preparation of magnesia were small, differences only appearing in rates of coking of higher hydrocarbons.

The X-ray diffractograms (XRD) characterization confirmed the. The formation of coke during the steam reforming of hydrocarbons results mainly from catalytic reactions.

For nickel catalysts, filamentous carbon is formed at the surface of the metal particle by a consecutive process of formation, diffusion, and dissolution. As the coke gradually is produced, the degradation of the catalyst is accelerated until the catalyst is disintegrated by Cited by: Nickel–magnesia catalysts for the steam reforming of light hydrocarbons Article in Topics in Catalysis (1) May with 36 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Ni-based catalyst often is considered as a steam reforming catalyst due to their high tar destruction activity. It is evident that the selection of support material is considered as one of the particularly crucial issues in tar steam reforming for hydrogen production.

Most commonly used supports are minerals and alumina or its by:   Experiments on the coking rates of variously prepared nickel catalysts on TiO2, Al2O3 and MgO in n-butane steam reforming show that changes in the relative coking rate at a rising steam excess in the gas phase depend mainly on the kind of support.

Results are presented for the steam reforming of ethane over several coprecipitated Ni–Al 2 O 3 catalysts from which it is concluded that the reaction proceeds via surface carbon species which then react with water to form carbon oxides or with hydrogen to form methane. In the first of a series of reactions over a clean surface, the selectivity was towards methane, and a steady.
