The potential of annular and plate-type structured reactors for kinetic studies of exothermic catalytic reactions is explored for CH4 and CO combustion. Critical aspects associated with the deposition of adherent and stable catalytic coatings, and with the reduction of temperature gradients are addressed. We show that nearly isothermal conditions can be achieved in a plate-type reactor configuration using highly conductive metallic supports.

Abstract

The potential of annular and plate-type structured reactors for kinetic studies of exothermic catalytic reactions is explored for CH4 and CO combustion. Critical aspects associated with the deposition of adherent and stable catalytic coatings, and with the reduction of temperature gradients are addressed. We show that nearly isothermal conditions can be achieved in a plate-type reactor configuration using highly conductive metallic supports.
