Pressure drop control | Avoiding fouling problems

Catalyst bed fouling reduces the void volume in the reactor, leading to pressure drop build-up, channeling, and hot spots. These issues negatively affect the catalyst performance and, thus, the cycle length of the unit.

From our proven grading strategies to our shape-optimized toppings, particulate traps and high void fraction ring-shaped catalysts, Topsoe offers a wide range of solutions for combating reactor bed fouling. Our solutions are based on unmatched industry experience and advanced laboratory modelling and are individually tailored to your needs.
