Abstract

Catalytic autothermal reforming of methane was studied over a commercial nickel catalyst as a function of feed flow rate, feed composition and oven temperature. Temperature profile of the catalyst bed was measured by IR thermography and product composition was measured with a continuous gas analyzer.
