Abstract
Various transport phenomena in conjunction with chemical reactions are strongly affected by reformer configurations and properties of involved porous catalyst layers. The considered composite duct is relevant for a methane steam reformer and consists of a porous layer for the catalytic chemical reactions, the fuel gas flow duct and solid plate. In this paper, a fully three-dimensional calculation method is developed to simulate and analyze reforming reactions of methane, with purpose to reveal the importance of design and operating parameters grouped as three characteristic ratios. The reformer conditions such as mass balances associated with the reforming reactions and gas permeation to/from the porous catalyst reforming layer are applied... (More)
Various transport phenomena in conjunction with chemical reactions are strongly affected by reformer configurations and properties of involved porous catalyst layers. The considered composite duct is relevant for a methane steam reformer and consists of a porous layer for the catalytic chemical reactions, the fuel gas flow duct and solid plate. In this paper, a fully three-dimensional calculation method is developed to simulate and analyze reforming reactions of methane, with purpose to reveal the importance of design and operating parameters grouped as three characteristic ratios. The reformer conditions such as mass balances associated with the reforming reactions and gas permeation to/from the porous catalyst reforming layer are applied in the analysis. The results show that the characteristic ratios have significant effects on the transport phenomena and overall reforming reaction performance. (Less)
