Intellishare provides standard and custom
catalyst modules used for emission control of volatile organic
compounds for many industries. Intellishare can custom-manufacture
catalyst modules for virtually any application, including:
- Catalyst modules for existing thermal oxidizers (can
help lower operating costs)
- Ceramic bed filters, used to protect catalyst beds in
ovens and oxidizers by removing particulate and absorbing
potential catalyst masking agents
- Catalyst beds for existing catalytic oxidizers
Catalyst can be supplied as a ceramic monolith, metal monolith
or ceramic spherical bead type.
Ceramic Monolith Catalyst
The substrate is a refractory such as cordierite. It is
coated with aluminum oxide (alumina) which is heated (calcined)
to reform its crystalline structure to obtain the maximum
adsorptive surface area capacity.
This alumina coating is then impregnated by absorption of
a liquid solution mixture, usually in a vacuum flow coating
process, with the active catalyst ingredients. This achieves
a uniform catalyst loading of precious metals for the desired
catalytic reaction. The catalyst life is determined by thermal
aging and or poisons and cannot be reactivated.
Ceramic Monolith Catalyst for Chlorinated and or Fluorinated
A monolith catalyst is also available to oxidize halogenated
hydrocarbons, such as TCE, PCE, methylene chloride, freon
and others without the formation of dioxins and furans.
Metal Monolith Composition
The substrate is a metal foil such as stainless steel alloys.
The metal substrate is a crimped ribbon, which is then formed
into various shapes and sizes. The metal foil is etched and
it is coated with aluminum oxide (alumina) which is heated
(calcined) to reform the crystalline structure to obtain
the maximum adsorptive surface area capacity.
The precious metals are then impregnated by an electromechanical
process and activated with heat and volatile organic compounds.
Metal monolith can be supplied in a variety of coatings
and cell structures to maximize geometric surface area and
lower the resistance to flow.
Spherical Catalyst Composition
The spherical catalyst was specifically developed for applications
that tend to inactivate a standard cell catalyst. The spheres
can also be used as a pre-filter to help protect a catalyst
bed from potential masking and poisoning agents that may
carry over from the process emissions.
The spherical catalyst, which is formed into 1/8" or
3/16" diameter spheres, looks like small
beads or marbles and requires a specially built tray. Once
the tray is in place, the catalyst is randomly dumped onto
the tray at predetermined depths based on pressure loss consideration
and overall VOC destruction requirements.
Once the catalyst is spent, an ordinary shop vacuum can
be used to remove the old catalyst.
Catalyst Disposal Services
Don't be a waste generator! At no cost to you, let Intellishare
recycle your used or spent catalyst.
