Novel Steam Reforming Catalyst

REFORMAX LDP Plus

ReforMax® LDP Plus series are a novel steam reforming catalysts for ammonia, hydrogen and methanol production.

The ReforMax LDP Plus series is designed with a larger hole diameter, which greatly improves heat transfer. Moreover, by significantly reducing pressure drop, the innovative reforming catalyst enables higher gas throughput, as well as considerable energy savings.

Syngas producers also benefit from the suppression of coke (carbon) formation, especially when ReforMax 330 LDP Plus is combined with ReforMax 210 LDP Plus.
  • ReforMax® 330 LDP Plus

    ReforMax® 330 LDP Plus is a novel steam reforming and autothermal reforming catalyst for ammonia, hydrogen and methanol production. Based on ReforMax 330 LDP, the new catalyst’s floral 8-hole form lowers pressure drop by an additional 20% while offering its predecessor’s high activity and selectivity.ReforMax 330 LDP Plus is designed with a larger hole diameter, which greatly improves heat transfer.

  • ReforMax® 210 LDP Plus

    ReforMax® 210 LDP Plus is an advanced steam reforming catalyst for ammonia, hydrogen and methanol production. Based on the highly active and selective ReforMax 210 LDP, the new catalyst’s flower-like 8-hole shape lowers pressure drop by an additional 20% while retaining its predecessor’s benefits.ReforMax 210 LDP Plus is designed with a larger hole diameter, which greatly improves heat transfer.

New 8-hole flower shape for low pressure drop

Based on ReforMax LDP series, the new catalyst’s floral 8-hole shape lowers pressure drop by an additional 20% while maintaining a High Geometric Surface Area (GSA) offering high activity and selectivity.

ReforMax LDP Plus 8 hole floral shape enhances void fraction

The unique flower-like 8-hole shape of ReforMax 330 LDP Plus (standard) and ReforMax 210 LDP Plus (slightly alkalized) provides an enhanced void fraction which enables a significant lower pressure drop while retaining the outstanding activity of Clariant’s well known 10-hole ReforMax LDP catalyst series.

The increased void fraction inside and between the particles leads to:

  •   An unchanged high activity of
     
    ReforMax® LDP Plus (vs. ReforMax® LDP)
  •   20% lower pressure drop for
     
    ReforMax® LDP Plus (vs. ReforMax® LDP)

Significant decrease of pressure drop

The novel ReforMax LDP Plus shape leads to an outstanding pressure drop decrease of approx. 20%

Outstanding catalyst activity due to high Geometric Surface Area (GSA)

The novel ReforMax LDP Plus shape retains the high surface area of Clariant’s standard LDP 10-hole shape resulting in an unchanged outstanding catalyst activity for the steam reforming reaction.
