PROPANE DEHYDROGENATION TECHNOLOGY
With over 60 years of continuously improved performance, CATOFIN technology is a highly reliable and productive method for light paraffin dehydrogenation. The process operates at thermodynamically advantaged reactor pressure and temperature to maximize conversion of propane to propylene, while reducing investment and operating costs. As an ongoing commitment to advance catalyst technology, Clariant consistently improves the CATOFIN process with innovations such as Heat Generating Material (HGM) and new catalyst generations.
CATOFIN 311 delivers even greater selectivity and a longer lifetime of service, resulting in increased overall profitability for PDH producers. Thanks to its extraordinarily high reliability and productivity, CATOFIN delivers excellent production output annually compared to alternative technologies.
For a typical 600 kta PDH unit, this innovation translates to a potential of up to $20 million of additional productivity over the lifetime of the CATOFIN 311 catalyst.
- Commercially proven to increase profitability and reliability of plant operations
- Improved selectivity, maximized production profits
- Excellent overall operability
- Enhanced lifetime of service
June 13, 2019Clariant, a focused and innovative specialty chemical company, today announced the launch of its latest propane dehydrogenation catalyst, CATOFIN 311. The new catalyst continues the CATOFIN success with a solution that delivers even greater selectivity and a longer lifetime of service, resulting in increased overall profitability for propylene producers.more
