Selective acetylene hydrogenation catalysts for ethylene plants with "Front-End" configurations

OleMax® 250 Series

OleMax® 250 series catalysts are designed for selective hydrogenation of acetylene, methyl acetylene, propadiene and butadiene to produce ethylene in front-end plant configurations. The catalysts of this series offer optimal selectivity, long cycle life, and high operational stability while minimizing acetylene slip. 


The promoted-palladium catalysts have been in commercial operation for decades at numerous world-scale ethylene production facilities. We offer a choice of catalysts in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit different plant and process requirements.
