Optimize hydrogen plant efficiency with new MTS catalysts

02.01.2014  |  Hartono, T.,  Technip, Claremont, California

To study the impact on plant efficiency of using MTS catalysts, a comparison case study was held between the HTS-based and MTS-based H2 designs currently in operation.

The water-gas shift (WGS) reaction is a key process step in a hydrogen (H2) plant apart from the steam-methane reforming reaction. Conventional nonpressure swing adsorption (non-PSA)-based H2 plants use a high-temperature shift (HTS) catalytic reactor that is followed by the low-temperature shift (LTS) catalytic reactor to increase the H2 yield prior to entering the carbon dioxide (CO2) removal section and methanator.
