    Air-fired Secondary Reformer

    The air-fired secondary reformer is essential in natural gas-based ammonia plants as it is the simplest way of introducing the nitrogen required for ammonia synthesis. Unlike the upstream tubular primary reformer, the secondary reformer is adiabatic, and the operating conditions are more severe...

    Equipment

    Heat Exchange Reformer (HTER)

    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...

    Tubular radiant wall steam reformer

    The radiant wall steam reformer consists of a number of catalyst tubes in a single line in one or two fired boxes with burners placed at the walls at several elevations. The burner flames are directed backwards against the furnace wall, eliminating any risk of flame impingement of the catalyst...

    Boiling Water Reactor

    The boiling water reactor is also often abbreviated as BWR. It is typically used for methanol synthesis, but it can also be used for other exothermic reactions, such as methanation or water-gas shift. A boiling water reactor contains a tube bundle which typically consists of several thousands of...

    Catalytic Oxidation Reactor

    The catalytic incinerator ensures that the combustible compounds CO, CH3OH, HCHO and DME are burned with the oxygen present in the tail gas to reduce emissions to meet any environmental requirements i.e. EPA or TA Luft.
  • Equipment

    Formaldehyde Reactor

    Optimized reactor dimensions to ensure optimal conversion with a minimal pressure drop and by-product formation. This results in excellent yields of formaldehyde from the methanol feed.
  • Equipment

    Formaldehyde Series-Reactor

    The Haldor Topsoe series reactor has been in operation for over 20 years and is a proven way to boost the capacity of plants by up to 80%. The series reactor configuration means that a significant boost to production can be obtained while maintaining the same gas flow through the plant.

    Collect-Mix-Distribute System

    Topsoe’s Collect-Mix-Distribute system ensures efficient addition of quench between adiabatic catalytic beds. The CMD system Collects the effluent gas from the upstream catalyst bed, Mixes it with the quench gas, and then Distributes the mixed gas across the downstream catalyst bed. The improved...
