Optimize hydrogen plant efficiency with new MTS catalysts
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.
