Modelling carbon formation using thermodynamic and kinetic methods in a steam methane reformer over nickel catalysts Holt J; Herritsch A; Watson M (2019)Steam methane reformers are used in industry to convert natural gas and steam into hydrogen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. In order to operate a reformer efficiently and safely its behaviour needs to be understood. ...
Modelling kinetic, thermodynamic and operational effects in a steam methane reformer. Part B: carbon formation Severinsen I; Herritsch A; Watson M (2021)Results from a multi-scale one dimensional model of a steam methane reformer were applied to investigate carbon formation. Using a combined thermodynamic and kinetic approach, regions of likely carbon formation are ...
Wahab, Azmi Abdul (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2007)In methanol processing plants, steam-methane reformers consist of hundreds of vertical tubes operating at temperatures up to 1000°C. These reformer tubes fail by creep through the formation of creep voids during service. ...
