Carbon monoxide oxidizers

Mike Durilla, William J. Hizny and Stan Mack,    BASF Corporation, Iselin, NJ, United States

Abstract

This chapter covers the carbon monoxide oxidizers that are installed in heat recovery steam generator systems to reduce the CO emissions generated in the combustion process, so that the stack CO emission limit can be met. It describes the function of the oxidation catalyst contained therein, the reaction mechanism taking place on the catalyst, and the nature of the construction of the catalytic structure and surface. The design process is described from the definition of the problem, the choice of the catalyst, and the determination of the catalyst volume required to operate the specified time period and the specified ...
