AmoMax® 10 Plus is Clariant's latest generation of wustite-based ammonia synthesis catalysts. The catalyst is based on the proven ammonia synthesis catalyst AmoMax 10 with an improved promoter set. The optimization of concentration and ratio of the promoter system lead to higher activity, higher stability and a faster startup of AmoMax 10 Plus. The significantly increased activity allows operation with a higher per pass conversion and lower loop pressure, which can be utilized for added ammonia production and/or energy savings. The higher stability and improved water resistance increase the catalyst lifetime and enable a faster catalyst reduction.
ENERGY SAVINGS AND LESS CO2 EMISSIONSLoop pressure reduced by up to 10 bar
Ammonia concentration at converter outlet 1% higher
INCREASED AMMONIA PRODUCTIONUp to 3% higher
LONGER LIFETIMEHigher poison and water resistance
QUICKER START UP
Performance of AmoMax 10 Plus
The next generation of Clariant AmoMax 10 catalysts shows at least 8% higher ammonia productivity and excellent thermal stability. AmoMax 10 Plus provides a significantly better water resistance and is considerably more active especially at low temperatures, where the temporary poisoning effect of water is typically the strongest. AmoMax 10 Plus allows quicker startup with lower reduction and light-off temperature.
