Özet

Catalytic partial oxidation of methane was investigated in a reverse flow reactor with commercial Rh/Al2O3 catalyst in pellets. The process is carried out in a catalytic fixed bed reactor and switching of feed flow direction is obtained through four electrovalves synchronized in pairs. Temperature profile along the catalyst bed was measured by fast IR themiography and product composition was measured with a continuous gas analyzer.
