Makes it easier to go big in hydrogen production
Use a Topsoe HTER solution to produce up to 30% more hydrogen with 7% less feed and fuel. Even if there’s hardly any space available.Brochure Makes it easier to go big in hydrogen production
The introduction of gas heated reforming for synthesis gas production will enable you to effectively utilize the valuable heat in the reformer effluent to create more reforming capacity.
The Topsoe HTER can be used in combination with an autothermal reformer (ATR), with a tubular reformer (SMR), or with a two-step reforming configuration (an SMR followed by a secondary reformer). It is ideally suited for all synthesis gas production and in particular for hydrogen and ammonia production. It is a cost efficient option to revamp an existing plant to a larger capacity and for new plants, the technology offers a smaller footprint or even higher single line capacity.
The proprietary HTER internal is based on an efficient convective transmission of the heat to the reforming catalyst. Topsoe has adopted convective reforming for decades – both for flue gas based convective reforming (HTCR and TBR) as well as in the HTER and this extensive experience and our materials knowledge allow us to optimize the HTER with respect to heat transfer, pressure drop, temperature profile, and material selection.
